I’ve got that Les Miserables song rocketing through my mind right now.
One day out now and my tummy is bubbling in perpetual nerves! It’s all about the last minute touches to packing now, and moving cross-country, ya gotta be concise. I’m not a good packer, I always want to bring everything. Luckily, half my wardrobe is staying behind as I will not be suffering through the usual New England winter, probably.
Although check this nonsense out!
I checked out the Los Angeles forecast and noticed it was slightly chillier there than it was here in good old Boston. What the what? Although, I’m just happy for relief from the humidity.
It was gorgeous out yesterday, the sun and a slight breeze lending to some perfect September weather. I took full advantage- and had to improvise my workout without a car- and got running outside.
New sneakers, new outlook on life, as far as I’m concerned. It’s amazing the difference you don’t even notice until you’re not running in threadbare shoes.
My last trek around the neighborhood, for now, was a great one. Strong pace, strong legs, controlled breathing, and just soaking in all the love and familiarity. New things are scary, friends, exciting, but it’s safe to think of all my emotions in capital letters right now.
After my run, it was time for my last work day at my beloved Y. I started out as a member for years, I’m talking pre-weight loss days, and I can’t think of another place I’ve frequented more often (other than my home) in the last four years. A gym, the right kind, becomes a safe place. I can’t imagine working out anywhere else, except now, I’ll have to do just that. Sadness, but also, it provided me a place to build my inner and outer strength, gifted me an opportunity to pursue a dream and build my Personal Training practice, and thanks to that, and the people who work there, I feel ready to conquer this next adventure.
I’m heading there shortly for a final workout and I’ll probably cry, but I have no regrets!
After work, I enjoyed dinner with my friend Molly at our favorite place, finishing the night off with some ice cream!
The next time we check in, I’ll be in sunny California. Things are happening, people!
