today is the first day of the rest of my life...

I know it’s a saying that is a bit frayed around the edges, but there are times when it really does apply. After all the activity that has ensued during the first few months of this year, we finally have a chance to be at home and get on with our life here. I’m making progress with the unpacking stuff, but I think I’ll refrain from referring to that very much anymore since it’s quite the boring topic!

Today marks the “first day” because I actually made it to the pool to start my exercise regimen of doing laps. I’m basically allergic to exercise, and swimming is one of the few ways that I choose to exert myself. So today was the day. I’m so out of shape, I think I managed a little more than a quarter of a mile, and oddly enough the muscles that fatigued first were in my hands! Who knew? The experience was otherwise fairly painless, so I’ll head back tomorrow and hope for a modest showing of improved stamina. I don’t care much anymore about how I look in a bathing suit, but I DO want to look good in a wedding dress in November. And as far as that goes, shopping for it more than a few days in advance necessitates doing something about weight issues NOW! I just hope I can find something “for the mature bride,” when the time comes.

Wish me luck!

Good Luck to you Ms. Anne....I am sure that date in Nov. will keep you motivated, and the muscle soreness will lessen as you progress.
Rest assured there are plenty of options as far as approiate wedding dresses go, I can attest to that as I was 40 something when I got married!!!
Love You,
Karen

I am glad to hear that things are settling down in your world as I know it's been such a whirlwind. And, regardless what you find to wear, you will be a beautiful bride come November. :c)

Good luck on your exercise. I know how difficult it is. Just keep plugging away and you will see the success and rewards that follow. Besides I need some inspiration! (I think this applies to the unpacking too!)
Have a good one.
