The other day I was shaving my legs and I thought the back of my leg felt weird when I ran the razor over it. It felt...hard. It took me a second and then I started laughing. That's MUSCLE! I'm literally so unfamiliar with hard muscle on my body that I don't even know it when I feel it, lol.
Tonight I was putting lotion on my legs and I flexed my leg to show Shawn that I'm getting muscle and when I flexed my calf I could see it! For the first time I can actually see muscle definition in my legs. I'm a bit fascinated by it, I kept making Shawn look at it again, lol.
I know that's silly, we all have muscles, big deal, but it's so nice to see physical changes in my body. I need those confirmations that I'm getting somewhere in order to keep going. All the sore muscles I've have over the past few months are worth it when I can finally see physical changes in my body.
And on an unrelated note, I went to the grocery store this morning and bought the ingredients to make the salad I ate at Karens yesterday. Shawn and I had it for lunch. I'm pretty sure I'm having it again tomorrow. I wonder how many days in a row I can eat it before I finally get sick of it. Mmmm...salad. :)
