Day 10 of the new habits for life is upon me. To my surprise, I can move with more ease and have much less back and ankle pain. Now, this doesn’t mean I’m dancin’ in the steets yet. That much coordination may take a while. (Do grandmothers dance in the streets?)
Today is really only day three of the formal Totally Fit Life system. I began most of the program last week, but opted to begin the temporary “boot camp” eating for this week. (There were cookies in the freezer. I had to help get rid of them.)
Bottom line: This change helps boost metabolism — the thing that burns off pounds. I’m all for that.
I am told — although verifying that is why we are sharing this journey together — that noticeable health and weight loss results occur after each ten week cycle, if you simply do the system. Rather like getting directions for driving to Denver: you follow the route laid out and you arrive within the prescribed time.
This week we also migrated from just walking 40 minutes a day to more active movements during class. The coach adjusts activities for those of us who are still less flexible. My fear is quickly being replaced with a sense of fun.
However, one wonders if a bit of repressed aggression lurks for our agile and enthusiastic coach, Rich. Rather than run around playing soccer today, I was given the task of throwing in the soccer ball.
Somehow, I hit the coach square on the back — close range.
Really, it WAS an accident. And forgiveness is part of our spiritual journey. Right, Coach Rich? Umm, I’m so sorry.
