entry number three

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Overall today was a good day. This morning I went to the farmer's market with my mother. We got a lot of fresh Veggies. I went to the gym today and biked seven miles in 37 min! that is the farthest I have gone yet. I am on track to do the Peninsula State Park trail in Door Co next week. Oh and I found out that the trail is around 10 miles, not 7.

Today would have been my grandfather's birthday. My grandfather passed away in March of this year, which was very hard for me and my grandmother. My Grandfather was the first person that I know that died. My grandmother planned a party for today to celebrate him. The whole immediate family was there. I thought that it would be bad before I went and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I ate more than I should have, but it was a special occasion and I didn't eat as much as I could have. The old me would have pigged out and noshed the whole time, but I didn't, which is a small victory for me.

I was going to write about my goals today, but I think I will leave that for another entry. I am really tired right now. I woke up early this morning in order to go to the farmer's market. I am going to work out tomorrow, and then tomorrow night I am going to see The Dark Knight Rises. I can't wait to see it! I know about the shooting, but I'm not

    We celebrated my grandmother's life on what would have been her 92nd birthday. She had passed about 6 months prior to that. She said that she didn't want the usual wake and funeral because she didn't want us all to "suffer" for 3 days. We had a great day of remembrance for her that day. We never forget our loved ones but it does get easier as time goes on.

    When we lose someone it is important to celebrate their lives. I'm glad you had the strength to honor your grandfather by taking part in the party.

    As for your strength to resist the food, it's important to know that a healthy lifestyle means making better choices, not about being perfect. So celebrate that you stuck to your plans and didn't give in to all of the temptations. If you weren't working on living a healthier life what would you have eaten? Would you be planning that great bike ride? You are choosing to do better and that's wonderful!

    Way to go about biking!! That's awesome :) And I super love the farmer's market - fresh veggies for cheap!

    That was very sweet to have a party to celebrate your grandfather, and congrats on doing better than you thought you would. You are stronger than you know :)

    And lastly.. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE DARK KNIGHT RISES! lol. I'm such a huge Batman geek, and I loved the first two of this particular trilogy. I am going to see it tomorrow as well :)

    Stay strong dear,
