This No Gym, Can't Do Much While Packing and Moving Thing Bites
Thursday, June 17, 2010
So, my eating is not horrible, but I feel the muscle going away. I feel myself getting squishy. Not good! After weeks of searching, I did finally purchase a swimsuit yesterday. Oh, the horror. It literally was weeks. (You try fitting a swimsuit to a 34D top and a size 4 bottom half. It's not that easy, when you don't want a bikini.) I ended up with a tankini that has a low back, but a tie also in the back (think like a wide tie where the bra would be on your back) as well as halter strings from the center (bandeau style) ...with underwire. It sounds really complicated, but it wasn't bad and it helped balance me out as well as support me. But seeing myself in a bathing suit (over and over and over) wasn't exactly thrilling when I haven't been able to go to the gym or work out like I like to...and I see the difference.
Needless to say, I can't wait to have all of this done and be in my new place, with a new gym...or just have space to work out without boxes and a tornado in every room in the house. And no, you cannot workout outside in the desert. It just doesn't work well in the summer unless you want to be a dehydrated lobster within 4 minutes. Frustrated Incorporated. (That was a great song. lol)
And speaking of frustration... Summer is ticking away as is the time I have left to figure out what I am going to do in the fall. So I move and then??? I mean I have to move again. I need to find some place to be, a job to survive on. Oh dear, oh dear. Maybe I should go off to Guatemala for the year to teach, but I just can't see me spending my entire 34th year doing that. Okay, I need to calm down, because something will come up. It will happen because it always does... Well, at least I look pretty good, despite the squishiness. :)
Until next time.
