For the first time this morning I wore one of those racerback fitted tanks to the gym. I actually found one that held in my tummy a bit to protect it while I was on the treadmill. I found it after several hours of shopping on Saturday. So I wore it Sunday to the gym underneath a light t-shirt. I walked, jogged 3.7 miles in an hour. This morning I decided to wear it with no shirt.
This is big. Can you tell? Are you thinking what I am?
I had the confidence to show off some of my body. I actually felt like I deserved to have people see how hard I've been working. I was going to say that I was a bit self conscious, but actually I wasn't. Not at all. And my former trainer noticed the loss I've managed and commented that I looked good! (victory for me!)
I also got a less fitted tank to try out with just my workout bra and see how that feels. And I got some smaller sized workout pants and longer shorts. I'm excited to try them out this week.
I do need to figure out this morning workout thing again. My old pattern was to get up at 4:40 am, get dressed, grab a small banana and go. The banana held me over until I could get to work at 7-7:30 to eat my breakfast. But I can't drink for 30 minutes after I eat. So if I eat a banana at 4:50, I can't drink for the first 20 minutes of whatever workout I do. And I tend to drink a lot. When I'm running it's about 36-40 ounces and when I do a class it's 30 ounces. I can't eat directly out of bed either. At least I couldn't before.
Hmmm... maybe I can kill 2 birds with one stone? I'm only experiencing hunger pains when I wake up. So maybe I need to keep a banana by my bed and eat it when I wake up. Then by the time I get ready and get to the gym I'll only have about 10 minutes of in ability to drink. I think I'm going to try it.
