Back to swimming

excuse me while I go and get some water, I'm thirsty
I'm hurting. Uncomfortable that is. Been to the pool each day this week and in the water for 20 minutes at a time. Now, I hurt. It's uncomfortable to get healthy. It's uncomfortable to feel my body going after fat cells to munch on rather than something chocolate and gooyee.
I'll be grateful in the morning. And I am, the water feels great. Someone once told me that you have to hurt for 10 days, then it will be ok, the body will adjust.
Morning, the hurt is gone, and now there is some other feeling which are strange.
I went to another part of the city this am, and was planning to go to the AM machine afterwards for I only had loose change in the bottom of my purse. Well, I got tangled up in my directions and detours and found myself north of where I should have been and couldn't get back in time for the thing to start. So, I went exploring and found this cute little local resturant. i would have normally ordered the breakfast special, but I didn't have the funds with me. I started out with a coffee, and literally counted my change, and then went to the menu to see what on the menu matched the funds that were in the bottom of my purse.
I found that I could get a cup of soup, and the waitress took the order for a cup of barley soup--homemade.
It was good and ample. It was filling, and I had to ignore the habit of eating more if I had more funds with me.
ok, been back swimming about 10 days, my body is getting into the groove of doing the stroke right. It's amazing what happens when I ask for help. In this instance, the lifeguard was there to show me the correct way. I wasn't able to keep at the stroke for the lenght of time that I have been without some sort of intervention. To push through the pain to do something different.
