The only thing that matters now is my mission. Nothing will stand in the way anymore.
I have been wanting to write but by the time I have finished working, then taking my walk... I'm exhausted, I then fall into bed. I usually send my David a good night text around 9 pm... that is 6 pm his time... then I am out like a light.
Because of the menopause, I rarely sleep through the night though but when I wake up I don't usually stay up for more than a minute or two as I am up at 4 am from Monday to Friday. Unfortunately, I can't blog on the bus because of all the bumps... so I usually just listen to music and relax. My lunch time is now being taken up using the bike at work, I want to strengthen my legs so that I can actually bike around Halifax next spring.
So, for the good news, I have now lost 28.2 pounds in eight weeks, that is averaging three and a half pounds per week. I have three weeks left to the contest... I am hoping I don't plateau before then... it means I will have to put out more effort. This also means I probably won't be able to blog as much as I like... the Fall is around the corner, I'll get more on track then.
I guess I've traded one addiction for another... the good thing about exercising is that it tires me out and it is helping me to lose the weight I have SO desired to lose over the years. There are NO more excuses for me, I have none... I am SO focused. I want to be healthy and I want stay that way for the rest of my life.
I remember reading my friend Joy's blog and she wondered what people thought of her when they saw her running... This is Joy's Facebook Fan page, I would love if you took a moment to like her page, she is one of the people who has inspired me to finally get active. I often wonder what people think of me when they see me walking/jogging (truthfully I don't care, I just wonder... I know I'm bettering myself). When I see a bigger person out walking or jogging, I think wow.. good for them... I know the people who know me are very supportive of my getting healthy.
I know I said I would put up before and after pictures in January... it most likely won't be until April... after I visit my David. I don't want him to see me until he sees me face to face. I am already shocking people and it is not even 30 pounds yet... I can imagine what another 40 or pounds off will be like... how shocking that will be.
I cannot explain enough how dedicated I am to continuing on this path of being healthy... I'm so grateful for finally catching the vision... I'm focused and nothing will get me off the path, I am loving how great I feel and I'm incredibly grateful that I can walk as much as I do....
I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future ♥
