My Independence Day

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

I am marking today my Independence day - independent from overeating on a regular basis - independent from laziness - independent from self doubt.

This morning I finally broke back into the 150's at 159.5!! I will take it!

I restarted SP with the attitude that the 3rd time is the charm. I read an amazing blog here by Indygirl and took her comments to the effect " I just started to move..." I started to move - long walks turn into runs - yesterday I went the furthest I have since college 30 years ago - 5 miles. I didn't run it all. I ran about 4.25 and mixed in some power walking .... so what? I am moving and eating well and am very proud of myself!

I am doing this in support of not only myself, but my son who is waking at 5am to do PT with the Navy in addition to all the bootcamp type activity those upperclassman are delving out to the Plebes this summer. I told him I would make it to the 150's soon -

I wish I could call him and let him know my success - oh well - a happy card will have to do!

Happy 4th to all
