It's funny isn't it, how you can go days, weeks and months without seeing much in the way of change, but there it is, sneaking up on you when you weren't looking.
I'm talking about my hips, of course (yeah, how could you possibly have not guessed that!). Or more accurately, the bit between my hips and my ass at the back / side. Which I noticed last night had developed a significant inward dent.
How on earth had I not noticed that before???
Actually, I know exactly how I hadn't noticed it, because it's the area that normally sits just below the waistband of my knickers. And to be honest, I'm not normally in the habit of parading around naked in front of the mirror inspecting myself in great detail (although I can spend hours in front of the mirror inspecting my latest outfit choice, and it's often the reason I'm late out the front door). The only reason I noticed, was that I (for some reason) had my hands on my hips and moved them down, and had a bit of a "oh hello!" moment (yeah, not that way - god, get your brains out the gutter!!!).
So there it is, or rather isn't. I've no idea if it's the effect of 4 runs in the space of a week and a bit, or the cumulative effect of a couple of weeks of Circuits and Balance, or a bit of all of the above, but let's be fair - I am certainly not complaining.
Long may the little things sneak up on me and surprise me in a good way!
