Yesterday I did something for the first time in many years. I went for a swim. It was exhilarating. For many years I was the size of two houses and I did not know what to do with my hair or should I say lack of hair. I could never have a proper underwater swim because I wear a wig. It must have something to do with getting older because yesterday I decided to put on my bathing cap with a floppy hat over it and I went down to our pool. I left my wig at home. I took off the floppy hat and put on my goggles and I swam 20 laps. Under the water. It felt so great. We lived in the pool when we were growing up in South Africa and it felt so good to swim properly. So I am still fat(not as fat as two houses anymore) an old. Who the heck cares. There was only one woman there with a little boy so I had the pool to myself. I was keen to do it today but as usual, it was too cold here in the Shores. Tomorrow I am going to yoga and not Jean. Not sure why I bother as she is not gelling again. I might try and sneak in a swim but not sure that the time will work. I also have cut out 5 newborn dresses and I am dying to sew them so I might do that tomorrow. Today I had an appointment with my nutritionist. She is always so helpful, knowledgeable and kind. I resisted for so long to see her but she has helped me soo much. I have a lot of things I need to work on but my attitude to food is better and my obsessions around food have improved so much.
This afternoon I went with the kiddo to go and open his first checking account. He got to deposit his first two paychecks. He is working part-time at a coffee shop. He needs to keep busy until he starts school and it also keeps his mind off the fact that he is no longer with his girlfriend.
I have not done any designs in the past few days. I really need to be working on fall colors but I am in a design funk right now. I will be in the mood again soon.
I cannot believe I am back in school next week. I am only doing two classes with the same instructor with the classes one after the other separated by a lunch break. That means I am at school from 11am to 4pm. Yikes. This guy can be so boring and for the most part, I use youtube to fill in the bits and pieces. The only good thing is that he does not care if you come to class as long as you do all of the work. That was very helpful for that hateful animation class. I ended up going to every second class and still walked away with a B+. The only annoying thing is that the parking is a nightmare at that time.
Oh well, that is all I have to share today. Happy Humpday tomorrow.
