Got in my exercise as planned last night since I couldn't walk on lunch. Did a 5 min warm up, 18 min cardio/kickboxing, 6 min cool down. Was sweating my butt off. <~~ don't you wish that would actually happen? LOL

Got the tux tried on last night and it fits. He is so uncomfortable in it but I think he is going to look so sweet next to his date. I'm going to put the pic in attachments on here from him trying it on.

In the last year, I had noticed that when I'd step over something, that more often than not, I wasn't lifting up the trailing foot high enough to clear the object. I thought it was a sign of getting older. Recently, I noticed it wasn't happening any more and figured it was because I was getting more fit. But in writing the above, I realized that maybe it was because my leg had the equivalent of a 5-lb bag of flour attached and I wasn't compensating for it.
It's so nice when you notice something about yourself other than the scale rewards. I notice that sometimes without realizing it I am running & playing in the yard with the dogs. I never would have done that. I would have sat on the porch. I have a lot to go but I am so much more comfortable in my own body now that I just want to keep going. Feeling so much better already allows me to slack off though because I forget how far I have to go.
