Feeling the burn...

Monday, August 05, 2013

My workouts have been progressing steadily. Today I did approximately 120 laps against the river at the Y. This takes about one hour and forty five minutes. I think that having Andi there with me has really helped to focus my workouts. Signing up for the Out of the Darkness walk has really helped give me a goal to work towards. I find that I work better with a goal and a deadline to meet. Andi is this sweet little round thing, that can look at you with her big ole puppy dog eyes, and say in a sweet little voice, lets try for 100 laps today, and your dying on lap 40 thinking to yourself there is no way in hell that is going to happen, when you hear yourself saying okay lets do it. I am not quite sure how she does it but I am beginning to cringe and tick when I see her coming because I just can't say no to her. I dislike her just a little for this, but my love for her far out ways the dislike.
This is my Andi.

My sons and I went and did grocery shopping last week and I was surprised at how easy it was for me to get through the shopping trip. It was a small trip but still I was able to make it through the store with out using one of the electric carts. I felt pretty good about that. My boys noticed it too.

Speaking of my boys they both graduated from high school in June and I am so proud. They are about to start college and they both want to go for Pharmacists. I am very proud of them.

    It is great to have someone to help push you when you need it. It is so easy to say "that was good enough" and convince yourself that it is. It is great that you have someone to push you to go just a little Farther.

    Congratulations on your sons graduating!
