What a difference a glorious night's sleep makes. My sister moon has been in town, and she keeps me awake every time....but last night, she was tired of "chatting" and allowed me to rest.
Spent the day with the grandkids yesterday. All day, walking the zoo. It was fabulous. Those little angels are the love of my life. As we age, we know too much. It is the innocence and joy of discovery that restores hope to our every cell. The excitement of seeing a chimpanzee "pee" from a log overhead...and of seeing the anteater's tongue...and the alligator that opened his mouth when he looked you in the eyes...ah...
Got in a good 4-5 miles walking yesterday...and carrying one or the other of them for probably a mile total...so got the exercise in. Off to a good start with eating today....and intend on keeping it up.
I have been very discouraged with seeing my fat numbers on the scale, so decided to reverse it, and see the pounds lost. However....then I had to face how many more I have to go! Guess the only way to not feel depressed is to be successful. Duh...what a concept.
I see others doing so well, and know it is my time to make the turn around. I am doing a 5K walk for MS in a few weeks....wanted to do the 10K but hubby doesn't think he can do it. Since it is a togetherness venture, I will have to shorten my goal, and just be thankful I can do a 5K with ease. There was a time in my life that accomplishment seemed somewhere between being very difficult at best to virtually impossible. So, stay focused on progress, always....not on setbacks.
