hump day has never been better
It was a pretty dang good Wednesday, normally that is the day of the week reserved for getting over the hump, halfway to the weekend but for me it was great. I took the day off from work and enjoyed some time with my mom. The cooking class was a blast, mom and I had a great time with Tammy, Judi and the gang. Our table got shushed three times and we all got a big case of the giggles at the most inappropriate times. The food was good and in the end I felt really good about what I ate, no doubt it was an indulgence but I stuck to the plan and went swimming tonight and feel great about the day.
When I was at the gym tonight I walked out to the pool and the water aerobics class was finishing up. I noticed there were people of all sizes in the class, some bigger than me, and some smaller than me, so I asked the instructor if the class was full and she said no, that I am welcome to come and join in whenever I want. Some of the folks in the class chimed in “yes, you should come” “it’s so much fun” so I told the instructor that I would be back next Wednesday and that I thought I would be comfortable in the class. She touched my arm and said “Yes I think you would be very comfortable, you are safe here”….I did not cry but I felt it welling up, the simplest acts of kindness can have a very big impact. I am very grateful for having a aqua aerobics class to add into the mix!
In addition to aqua aerobics, I am thankful for my mom, for this day, and for the small piece of homemade “Reese Cup” I enjoyed this afternoon!
