I’m on day 2 of this thing. I’m not gona lie, I was quite apprehensive yesterday about diving into the arctic-like water(yes, I’m exaggerating) of my cold shower. Took me a couple of minutes actually. Then I started inching my way into the shower. The unfortunate part is that my shower is actually tiny; as a matter of fact I just measured and I have about a 27 inch by 25 inch space in my shower. I’m 5’10” and roughly 217 pounds today, let’s just say I can’t hide from the water in that shower, so when I say I inched my way in, I meant I pretty much just jumped in.
Initially I whined and moaned and made stupid little sounds, but what’s funny is how very quickly, along with slowing my breathing, my body got acclimated to the cold water. It felt like a like a warming effect, obviously it was still cold, but there was a tingling sensation that reminded my of the same feeling you get when it’s cold outside and you jump into a hot shower or a hot tub…but only a little like that.
I must admit, I took a really quick shower but afterwards I was awake and ready to take on anything. 2 down, 28 days to go!
