17. One word that best describes me. Elaborate.
I get going on a project and I plow through to achieve my goal. I never thought my fitness streak would last this long, but I stubbornly keep adding days. I will not give up! I would love it if I could make it 1,000 days. That may not happen as I will be traveling next June, but I should get pretty close. I wanted to lose 50% of my starting weight, and I have stubbornly stuck to my diet and exercise and made it happen. I have regained a few pounds, but now I know I can do it, and if I never get that heavy again then I won't have to make such big adjustments.
Walked the dog this morning before going to my parents' house. At first Cooper was pulling on the leash, but we resolved that pretty quickly. My brother, Jeremy, talked to me when I first got up and suggested that we go kayaking today. But I had already made plans with mom. We got back earlier than I thought we would, so Jeremy and I could have gone, but he was busy cleaning the barn by then and didn't want to break up his progress. We left it that if the weather was okay tomorrow then we would go tomorrow. I checked the forecast when I got home and we are looking at high winds and a 50% chance of light rain, so I am thinking that we won't go. The water temps are in the mid 30s, but the air temp is in the 60s this weekend. If we do go we have to be careful not to fall in!
