Well, fellow Slide Stoppers, I wondered if I would have a delayed reaction from my acrobatics at the end of last week, and I did wake up with a little stiffness and soreness in my neck and shoulders this morning, but I am happy to say that it didn't stop me doing the 5 mile workout this afternoon with Paul and now it's just my neck that is slightly sore.
This morning it was my turn to teach the grades 4-6 Sunday School class--16 bright souls! After getting the materials ready for class, I was able to come upstairs and stand at the back for part of the church service, until it was time for Sunday School. I was just wearing a t shirt and cords because it was warm getting ready downstairs. After church Paul told me that my mother-in-law had asked him, "Is Belinda working out? Because she looks thinner." Wow, that was encouraging! I also was so surprised that Paul's 81 year old mum would even notice, and if she did, that she would connect it with working out and not just eating healthily. It gave me a boost and I realize that even though I have still only lost 5 pounds, my body is looking trimmer and fitter.
