Sober on the Elliptical!

Okay – that’s not me and, unfortunately, I don’t look that good. HOWEVER- that is the machine I’m killin’ it on and I’m looking better every day. Or at least I think I am.

I’ve noticed a change in the shape and size of my lower thighs for sure. And I love it! That alone entices me to keep going back. However, and maybe this is due to my age (I’m 40 + 10), I’m not noticing any weight loss. So – instead of freaking out about that, I’ve decided I just don’t care. As long as my muscles look toned, I’m good. And for the record, I’m 5″5 and 128 lbs.

Apparently, my height and weight are acceptable for American society so long as I don’t go flaunting the muscles that still need some attention (my butt!!) . I’m working on it, okay?

Anyway – exercise in early sobriety feels so good. I can honestly equate it with the deliciousness of a nice, creamy, strawberry shake. Good Lord!! When I was drinking alcohol – I never worked out and I couldn’t have cared less about the experience I have when I down a strawberry milkshake.

I just love being sober. Everything that Life has to offer is so much less – painful.
