Today was the perfect Saturday.
First of all, it was 73 degrees. This weather has been completely bizarre but I will take it. If it means that the San Francisco Bay Area is underwater in 2030, so be it.
I woke up well-rested for the first time all week. I headed to a 9:45 Dailey Method class taught by the studio owner, Susan. In 2011, I found her classes very intimidating. She used to correct me to the point where it actually felt like she was picking on me. I was a bit nervous about attending her class today but figured I shouldn’t avoid it merely because it makes me uncomfortable. That’s not how PNP is rolling these days!
Class was wonderful and difficult. I was only corrected a couple times and it may have been my imagination but she seemed much friendlier than I remember. I think there is a bit of prejudice amongst both the students and instructors against people who are larger. Admittedly, I am more confident this time around and feel less scrutinized. That said, the instructors and other students are unquestionably nicer to me than when I was attending class with an additional 30lbs on my lower body.
Anywhoo, today was lovely and I’m psyched for class tomorrow!
After TDM, I picked up my friend T for a walk around the lake. She has recently lost a substantial amount of weight and is starting to introduce some exercise into her routine. We soaked up the March sunshine (?!) and worked up our appetites for lunch.
A bit of shopping (including an unprecedented $35 Lululemon tank!) and some additional vitamin D on the back patio. Heaven.
I didn’t anticipate that my definition of a perfect day would evolve to include 2 hours of physical activity. It’s day 17 of the challenge. I have had periods of physical activity much longer than this but none as transformative. I absolutely can’t wait to see what else transforms.
