But I'm at the early stage of sugar elimination again, where I feel tired and headachy and generally angry at the world. I need to ride this out - it's really hard.
There's a yoga class I'm going to at the gym tonight - I've packed my stuff, and will go over straight after work. It means I won't see my daughter today, which really sucks - but I'm starting to realize that I have to make tradeoffs every now and then - especially if I'm trying to get healthy. It's hard, though - I feel very guilty.
Oh - the class that I was talking about in my blog entry yesterday, is a running class! Isn't that cool? They have a bunch of treadmills, you sign out an iPod and a Nike + thingie (which tracks your distance), and shoes. The iPod gives you a "program" to run with, and there's an instructor around to movitate you. I think it's very cool. If I'm brave after yoga tonight, I might try that tomorrow.
I have to admit, it took some self-convincing to go to the yoga class tonight. I thought about waiting until I was in better shape, or giving it a few more weeks - and then I decided, forget it! Even if I am at the back of the class, even if I feel shy, even if I can't get my body into a bunch of the positions - it's time to start. I'm trying to focus on how awesome it'll feel when I'm done. The gym is full of gorgeous people, and perhap some of them will leer at my wobbly body. But whatever - this is my journey, and there's no room for feeling sorry for myself!
Will post after the class. Going for my second consecutive loss next week!
