playing like a skinny kid

Saturday, July 17, 2010

Hi Sparkpeople,

I ran my scale over with a John Deer and so I have no idea how much I weigh and don't care. (just kidding) I don't own a scale. I am wishing that I was thin, but playing like I am. I am able to play with my kids more and that is what I want. I want to be the best mom that I can be and enjoy my children. They are such a blessing!

I hear people say Rome wasn t built in a day and I didn't get this way in a day either. I had a rough beginning in my life and it didn't make me stronger. It made me fatter. I have heard some of you eat emotionally and I think that is what I was doing. Food was my friend and then it turned against me. LOL. I was a foster kid. I somewhat grew up and made many, many mistakes. I gravitated toward the familiar and that wasn't good and I walked around with my head up my behind and my behind grew too big and started knocking things off shelves when I wasn't paying attention. Well now I am paying attention and I haven't knocked any plants over with my rear in awhile.
I am so excited to tell you all that I have continued to move. No, I haven't run a 5k, but I am moving every day. YEAH! yesterday I walked three miles at a good pace, the day before I did intervals of walking and jogging and the day before that I walked four miles.( you get the pic.) I haven't stopped moving since I hooked up with a buddy in early June.
Let me clarify what I mean by playing like a skinny kid. I have been taking my kids to parks and avoiding the benches. I am looking for special rocks with my skinny kids and picking flowers, trying to climb trees, and swing from a rope into the river. I love playing frisbee and try to run when I can. I went to a park where children were running through a sprinkler and the adults were walking around all hot and I ran through like a skinny kid. LOL
Thank you all for your encouraging words. I am working on being my friend and treating myself kindly.
