Today wasn't too exciting. More exercise, more classes. My classes today were kind of touchy feely behavior classes. We are working on goals, red flags that those goals aren't going as planned, and a back-up system to get back on track. Nothing too interesting to share with the masses. It was a pretty tame day overall at FC... nothing too noteworthy to report. I have, however, discovered a new problem. Trying to figure out when to color my hair, when I won't be in the pool the next day - and turn my hair green. I know, I know. If that is my biggest problem, I shouldn't complain - but it REALLY needs to be colored!
I realized today that 3/4 of my entertaining co-residents are leaving this weekend! Manny, Cas, Howard, Katie, Colin, Zack..... all of them will be gone next week. I know it sounds crazy that I am going to miss them - I have only known they existed for a week and a half - but you bond quickly at FC. I think everyone is just so happy to have other people who understand their struggles, fears, embarrassments, accomplishments -that you become close faster than in the "real world". I am going to miss things about all of them. I just hope we are able to solve the mystery of Howard's blue hair before he leaves. It is mystifying. I know a request has been made for pictures - but I am not sure how to make that happen. I will work on it. Maybe they'll think it's cool that the "technician" wants to put them on her blog? Maybe.
As of today, I have not seen Rex Ryan. That appears to be a myth. Who knows - maybe he'll show up some day. Again - not much new going on. I am going through a bit of a spell where you have some growing pains with the people you spend the bulk of your days with. The same core group is in every class together. I have heard the same comments, stories, etc WAY too many times. The teachers rotate, but the participants really don't. I have had to dig deep, into my storehouse of patience. They are all so nice - so it is nothing personal. I am just going through a phase where I am really looking forward to some normal/familiar this weekend (Stephanie, Darcy and Marilyn are coming to visit and I am so excited!!!!) The positive? I am REALLY enjoying my workout time. My headphones are on, and I don't have to listen to anyone. It is magical.
As I sit at the bar, typing this blog, some skinny woman just got onion rings. Boy - do they look gross. I sure am glad I don't have to eat that stuff at FC.
Goodnight all! Tomorrow is my first weigh in since I got here (I am feeling different, but I don't look any different). Wish me luck!!
