Hiya.. This is a big week for me. It's my BIRTHDAY WEEK!! On Friday, I get the privilege of being one more year older, wiser, and HEALTHIER (or so I hope!). To reflect, I decided to post a graph of my overall progress, since Jan. For the most part, it is slow and steady, with a positive downward slope. I will take it! However, if you just look at this month (which you can do at the bottom of my blog anytime you want), it is big hockey stick. Missa has not been dedicating enough to herself lately, and letting stuff get in the way. So, instead of down in the dumpiness, I am plowing ahead.
I found a challenge that I want to try. It is the 5 x 5 Ford Challenge. Basically, I try to run or walk a 5K 5x's a week. I can break it up anyway I want, so if I want to walk a bit in the am, then run later, or maybe run 6 k one day and 2 the next.. But I am up for it. This will be my goal for the next 20 days. Feel free to join me!
I am 36 and have been overweight for most of my life. There are much better things that define me, but till I work on this weight, it is the stinky fart in the room. So, I write this to keep accountable, to find inspiration in others, to rekindle the joy in myself.
