An eye opener I needed

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Woke up this morning and did NOT want to go for a walk. I thought about it and "technically" the plan says I could have taken yesterday off which I didn't so I could take today off right? That was my logic. and hit me....putting exercise off and not eating right was what got me here. So I laced up my sketchers and went out to the car. Drove to the park, started my music, started my app and off I went. During the walk I felt pretty good until about 1.5 miles in and then it hit me, I should not have eaten before walking. Got sick, and continued my walk.

While I was walking I looked down at the ground and who on earth did that smaller shadow with curves belong to?!? Holy crap it was me! I've noticed since losing the 60+ lbs I look more like a woman than a blob. I resembled an oompa loompa or a weeble (only difference was I would fall down). Seeing that shadow made me push harder on my walk. It makes me want to go again tomorrow.

    I wish we could post pictures in comments -- but I have a great one that says

"I really regretted that workout - said no one ever"

And that is the truth. It sucks getting there, it may even suck when you are doing it, but after you are done, you don't regret making yourself get out there is do it up.

I commend you for getting out there and getting it done! Great job!
