I have been experimenting with walking/jogging (all right, experimenting is probably a strong word because I have only done it twice). I managed to start off with a mile and a half straight, walked/jogged around the HS track, and mostly walked home with about a half mile of jogging for a total of at least 3 miles jogging. Needless to say, my body wasn't used to it and I was tired.
I had forgotten that this was the night that I was going to see a HS summer camp theatre production. If we had not already bought tickets and that a friend of mine was conducting, I probably would have begged off. I was tired and sore!
So,so glad I went. Although I didn't know anyone on stage, some of "my kids" were playing in the orchestra and I was really surprised to find that a former student who graduated 5-6 years and played the lead in one of our productions also played in the pit, so it was wonderful to reconnect with him. And then there was the added bonus of sharing that experience with a dear friend who also loves musical theater.
Sure, I am tired today. Did I tell you that I got home close to midnight? Not usually in my waking hours category, but last night added "footprints in my heart." What a wonderful phrase! The support here also leaves those footprints. Who leaves the footprints in YOUR heat? Thank them today for being such an important part of your life!

I am truly blessed! I have my family and friends who are wonderful. It has been my SFs lately who have offered advice, questioned me, supported and encouraged me. It truly helps when people have gone or are going through the same thing you are. I am beginning to realize that this whole calorie thing may stall me for a quite a while until I figure it out (feel free to hit me on the head with that fact over and over again!). If I didn't have all of you here, I probably would have given up since I haven't seen the fastest scale results. You are trying to teach me patience. Just warning you, I, and most other people in my life, have tried to teach me patience, but I have been a slow learner for 58 years. Your outpourings of concern encouragement, etc. have been truly heartwarming. s!!!

I am not sure I am "making" my day ridiculously amazing, but really just noticing things that make the day amazing! Examples of this just yesterday: husband texting me for no reason at all , sitting at my desk yesterday getting ready for summer school and realizing that I am doing exactly what I was meant to do, , having a professional conversation with a woman who used to be my son's girlfriend in HS and being able to help her with teaching resources, having saved enough calories (even fat!) to have a piece of pizza, talking with a friend for the first time since school let out, getting tickets for a musical show, sitting down after coming home and listening to the breeze and my wind chimes, over 10,000 steps again yesterday, getting into the car and on the radio is "Lean on Me," and my husband taking the time to continue to watch 2 episodes of MASH every night with me since I am trying to work through all 11 seasons. There are lots more that I can't think of right now, but it is "ridiculously amazing" how many of these moments are in your day! I am truly grateful!
