Then I stopped over and bought a lot of healthy food, the bank account took a hit... why does it have to be so expensive to eat properly... oh well, it is all put away, I did not by one unhealthy item of food. Valentina had stayed at Cindy's, she was going to take a taxi home but I decided to walk up there... it was a lovely day today. I walked up there which is uphill all the way... 1.2 miles, I visited with Cindy for a while and than gathered Valentina and all her new clothing and started walking back.
Oh can I say how exhausting it is to walk with a pre-teen who is making it her mission to be as cranky as she can about walking... Suddenly my sweet Valentina isn't being so sweet.... a rude awakening awaits her, she can complain all she wants, we are walking as much as we possibly can... there will be no more taxi's for short little jaunts, we will be making the time and effort to move our bodies.
First and foremost I want to get healthy, second I want to win the contest at work... not only will I win the money, I will win by losing the biggest percentage of weight and third.. I have a goal... something to aim for, that makes me a girl on a mission.... I have no set time for this mission to be completed, since this is now a lifestyle change but there will be bonuses and rewards a long the way...
My first goal will be to win the money, I wish good luck to everyone but I am going to win... When I set my mind to something... I don't aim for anything but the top prize. I have been racking my brain for the past couple of weeks trying to figure out how to motivate myself to finally work on eating healthy, exercising and ultimately losing weight. Then along came this contest... it is exactly what I need to get a good start to getting on the right path.
With every step I am taking, I am walking towards the right direction. All I can say is I am focused... when I am tenacious this way, I am at my best... Like I said... I am a girl on a mission....!!!
I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future ♥
