Saturday was a mix of familiar stuff and new things. Missy and I were going to the DC Littles Munch. Beforehand though I wanted to work out, to go swimming at a new pool that opened up near us.
I decidec to do 45 minutes of breast stroke, because it's a really good calorie burn for me, and I knew there would be cake at the munch. As I swam I debated cutting it short at 30 minutes, but realized my health mattered more than that 15 minutes.
To reward myself for my diligence I went on the new pool's absolutely amazing water slide. So fast. So tall. So dizzying. So GREAT.
It felt good to make my exercise a priority again.
At the munch, I was almost completely just a guest there, instead of helping run it. I did stand up during announcements to talk about the Littles Express holiday train ride I'm helping run this year. But that was just a small thing. It felt great to be at the munch while not being in charge of it.
I'm grateful I can do new things that are informed by old things, and old things in new ways.
