The only thing that matters now is my mission. Nothing will stand in the way anymore.
Well it is supposed to rain for the next few days so I took the opportunity to walk home from church in my new Nike Air sneakers, they felt amazing... I love them. I had a backpack and my purse so unfortunately I wasn't as quick as I wanted to be but at least I got out walking. I am going to have to be creative and ready at a moments notice to just go for a walk when the rain is light. I don't want to stop walking for 3-4 days just because of some rain. Besides I am not made of sugar, I won't dissolve by going out for a walk in it. I just don't want to walk in downpours or if it is thunder and lightening. This is a wake up call for me and makes me realize I have to have some sort of alternative exercise planned, especially with winter on the way. I have really been spoiled with this summer, I have been able to walk almost every single day for the eleven weeks of the contest.
Besides I am thinking if I join the gym like I wanted to do in the past, this will get Valentina motivated to exercise too... She doesn't enjoy walking like I do but maybe she will enjoy going swimming or working out in other ways. There is so many things she could do out at the Canada Games Center... I will just have to take the plunge and get signed up and start organizing myself to go out there at least 5 nights a week. It might get her on a better path than she is on now, which lately has been sitting in front of the TV, a time waster in my mind ... especially since I haven't watched it in over 11 weeks, I wonder how I ever had time... different priorities then...
I don't think she knows how motivated I am, she does have to lose less but as competitive as she can be, I am more so... I am willing to do whatever I need to become as healthy as possible. She works more than I do, so I have more time to exercise. Either way, she and I will be winners because we will both lose... we will be taking pictures weekly of being on the scale and following each other on Fitness Pal... I can hardly wait to pick out my new bra from Victoria Secret... hahaha. She told me which one she had her eye one, I told her I am sure she will enjoy buying it for herself.
I don't want to post a picture of myself until I see David as I want to surprise him with the weight loss, he knows I am losing it but knowing it and seeing it are two different things. However; I am thinking of putting a picture up on Instagram, if you have an account there than you could see it, I just have to find someone to take the picture for me... I wish it was either my son in law Paul or my daughter Andrea... both of which take amazing pictures of me. Oh well, I have to be content to find someone else to take the picture. I will post here to let everyone know when I put the picture up. I will email it to a few of my friends but I don't want to post it on Facebook just yet... besides I plan to lose more weight and become even healthier than I am now.
So, I have two new goals, one to prepare myself for my 5k walk/run on October 6th and to lose 10% more weight before my sister does, both of which I will be doing. It feels great to be committed and have goals... I also have a long term goal I am working on, once I get closer to it, I will write about it here, it is just in the beginning stages right now. Goals are promises I make to myself, getting to each goal means I don't break those promises...
I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future ♥
