In which we whisper a word

Had a great workout session yesterday. We did Tabata training, which is hard – 20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest – 5 times. The first 2 sessions are pretty easy, then a bit harder, then for the last session, well, let's just say those 20 seconds feel like 20 hours! However, this way of training builds muscles and I do like those muscles!
Also ran on the treadmill. Now that was interesting. For the first time ever, it seemed I wasn’t heavy when I ran. I was light. No idea why such a change from the last time I ran on a treadmill, it’s not as if I’ve lost so much weight since then. But my step was springier, the stride was fluid, my breath was controlled. Dare I say it? It was sort of fun.
Here’s a word to whisper “graceful”   Yeah, it was kind of like that.
That's an interesting concept. One that I've never, ever used to describe myself. 
How cool to know that not everything different is scary. It can be good. It can be freeing. It can be graceful.
How about that?
Thoughts to take with me today: Let the changes come.

  1. I am so happy for you. Your muscles are catching up to your weight or your weight is coming down into the range of your muscles or something like that. The great thing about muscles is that you burn more calories just sitting! Congratulations.
