Hello peeps! This has been an interesting week with a lot of firsts: 1. I went on my first online dating date. 2. I tried a cycling class. 3. I attended a bodybuilding competition. 4. I got a fitbit.
So, I have a confession to make. Those who have been reading this blog for a while might remember that I once created a Match.com profile but never paid for the subscription. Well, last week I decided to finally give it a real try so I paid a 3-month subscription. 😯
I had five emails sitting in my inbox which I was finally able to read. Three out of the five had very little in common with me and I politely replied “thanks but no thanks” (I was nice, I promise). One was a little older but I figured better give it a chance so on Tuesday I went on my first date in ages… years… it’s been years. I have to admit to you that although the guy is really great, he is certainly not my type but it was fun to be out and about again. I already have another “date” scheduled for next weekend and I’m working out a time and place for a third prospect.
OK… that’s it for now. I will report back with more stories as they occur. For now I haven’t really been able to assess what it’s like. Also, my liberal political leanings and lack of religiosity really limit my options here in southeastern United States. I’m still trying to decide if that is a good or bad thing. Wish me luck! 🙂
On Thursday I attended my first cycling class and I did really well. I have always been curious about it but never given it a shot. I am very glad I did. Although my butt did hurt the next day and during the first 15 minutes of class 😳 I am sticking with it.
This week I promised myself to diversify my exercise schedule. Although I failed to add swimming and running as I initially intended, I still managed to switch it up adding a yoga and cycling class. I look forward to adding other options next week.
Yesterday I attended the KGB Klash. I really wasn’t sure what I was expecting from a bodybuilding competition and was surprised at the number of women competing. Way more than men. I was in awe of what the human body can do… at any age. I initially thought that I would feel terrible about myself (I know, something I must work on), but the opposite happened. I walked out super inspired. And I mean… how could I not? Check out these amazing athletes:
Today I bought my first-ever wearable device. After careful consideration I decided on the Fitbit Charge HR. I’ll start using it tomorrow and look forward to reporting back on what I learn next week.
Overall it was a pretty good week exercise and experience-wise. Food, again, was not on point. I am having a hard time eating what I plan to eat. I hope that next week is better.
