Three Years? Lots of Struggles and Victories!
Thursday, March 14, 2013
So - Tuesday I will be on Spark for 3 years. In that time I have lost 30 pounds - and then gained most of them back - as I have continued to grieve my husband and then the loss of my father too.
But there have been lots of victories, as well. I began running. And ran my first 5K - as well as many more. I ran my first 5 miler - and many more. I did my first triathlon - a Sprint Tri - and have completed 2. I even ran a half marathon this past April.
I also almost died this past Ocotober from a rare condition and have been struggling with weight and fitness after major emergency surgery since then.
I guess the good news st that I am still here. I survived my health conditon and my surgery and I am here on Spark almost every day. I keep trying. I haven't given up. I have one 5K under my belt since surgery and another panned for this Sunday. And 2 5 milers are in the works. Maybe a half marathon again this fall or next spring. Now if I coulod only get the scale backl in line...
