So... yesterday was a revelation.
I've been climbing twice a week (not 3 times, as I should have been) at Coyote while my beloved Vertical Reality has been under construction/renovation during the month of October. I was doing pretty well, and figured that I've probably improved there.
Not. So. Much.
So I didn't really realize it, but if you look at the photos, there's something different about these two places:
(most easy problems located on walls that run straight up and down)
(NOTHING IS STRAIGHT UP AND DOWN!)
So... Was supposed to have one last visit to Coyote before my pass expired. Instead, auto-pilot took me to VR. Great, I'm really ok with that! Yay! New toys! So many new problems to play with! So... *gasp*... much *gasp*... to *gasp* ... try! Yeah, so, apparently I haven't really been pushing myself this last month. *aargh!*
So: back on the horse. Swimming tonight. First ballet class tomorrow. Climbing Friday. Pet Expo Saturday (*disclaimer* not actually exercise). Spa day (yay, finally getting my birthday present, and using it to celebrate a friend's birthday too!) Sunday, followed by -- you guessed it -- more climbing.
No wonder October was an unsuccessful month for losing weight! I was doing a LOT less than I thought! I was climbing until my hands refused, but the rest of me apparently wasn't getting the memo.
Oh well, I'll just play demon games:
