Sunday rest

Sunday, February 24, 2013

My weigh in day is on Tuesday. I did not pick it for any other reason than that's when I joined SparkPeople. The first weigh in after the start was disappointing as pounds were added instead of subtracted. The second one was much better. In roughly two days, I will weigh in again. I am not sure whether or not the scale will move in either direction. But here is what I do know: between Friday and Saturday I ran a bit over 9 miles. It is a major achievement. I have never been sporty in any way. I am very busy with a full time job and being a single mom to a pre-schooler. I have even less time now, but I do not think I can stop running any more. I have so many challenges in my life at this point, but when I run, that is the only thing I am thinking about - running. It gives me the freedom from all the other things in life, freedom that I so desperately need. That's right, it is not only about losing weight. It is also about piece of mind. And, well, celebration. Celebration of determination and the ability to carry out something I was just recently unable to do. This week, I went twice the goal distance. I should probably raise my goal. Resting today.

    I was lucky to go to a conference to St. Louis last summer. This summer coming to St. Charles for another one!
