My Valentina did the hill with me and complained the whole time... I told her too bad, get over it, we are walking. I finally had to tell her not to talk because I needed all my air to get up the hill. All I can say is she is in for a rude awakening... we are going to walk whenever possible... we both need to get healthy.
I cannot remember a time I was this dedicated to eating right and exercising. Usually it is one or the other but hardly ever both together. I am loving this commitment I have made to myself... I have shown myself I matter... that is the biggest blessing I've learned.
I'm not hiding my emotions with anything... I was the master of covering them so I didn't have to deal with my issues. I was great at talking about what I needed to do.. now I'm walking the walk in more ways than one... I am so thrilled with myself.
I am a little over a month from turning 50 [July 23 is the big day]... I am at least 80 pounds over weight and I am not letting it stop me. There are NO excuses for this girl anymore... I am done crying and being sad about where my life is... I'm changing it right here and now.
A couple of people at work said to tell everyone I'm 49 again... I said heck no... I'm going to be 50 and proud of it... I look darned good for being 50 and I'm not embarrassed to say it. I know some women my age who have let themselves go with not coloring their hair, dated clothing and in general with the way they act.
That will not be me, I'm proud to be turning 50 soon... I had to go through a lot to get here...it doesn't mean I have to look like it... I can be sexy and 50... there's NOTHING wrong with that.
I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future ♥
