I'm in Training

Thursday, March 27, 2008

First, we mustn't forget that tomorrow is Friday. I've made up my mind, several times, that no matter what I'm not working on the weekend. I want to work in my front bed of my house. Pull out everything, lay down weed screen, get rocks, fill it all in and then plant some flowers. Clean off the porch, and neaten the front area.

We are having the Komen Breast Cancer Walk/Run here in Boise on May 10th, the day before my BD (which is on Mother's Day this year. My work friend and I were talking about it and talking about walking 1 or 5 miles. I can't remember the last time I walked 5 miles. So I'm going to get busy and train since we both shook on walking the 5 miles. What a great thing to do before I turn 58 the next day.

I'm feeling very happy today. My weight dropped and this a.m. I weighed 140 lbs. This actually means that I have 12 lbs., yes a reasonable 12 lbs. until I reach my GOAL. It is scary too in many ways. Can I get there? Can I keep it off? I've got some trips planned for April/May? Can I eat properly when I travel (always a great excuse to pig out -- I'm not too controlled on vacations/trips). I'm going to do some serious soul searching and try to get mentally prepared for these trips AND pre-plan what I will eat. So many uncertainties are coming with getting close to goal and it, as I said before, is a little scary. I do want to get there, I do want to maintain. So I guess there is one way to do that and it is to "stay the course."

Anyway, exciting day to be 140!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Training for a 5 mile walk. Strong work. You've got 6 weeks---right? Just take it slowly and you'll be walking those 5 miles with ease.

    Just think you only have 140 lbs to carry with you. That is so great. Just 12 more to lose. WooHoo!

    Take care and Good Walking
