Day 76 and the Zombie Walk is upon us

Saturday, October 19, 2013

I have been working towards the goal of losing 15 pounds before the Zombie Walk and have lost one third of my goal. What I didn't realize when I set that goal was how using the scale as the measurement for my success would be so completely wrong. This morning I ran 3.5 miles without stopping. I haven't smoked in 76 days and I have lost inches off my entire body (total unknown since I haven't measured myself recently). The inches lost make themselves known every time I put on a pair of pants that were previously snug and immediately put on a belt - something I have not had to do in a very, very long time. In short what I'm saying is I should have planned to measure my success by my overall health. I will use this measurement going forward and will make damn certain to be my own cheerleader, ignoring those untrue, misleading, archaic, defeating "tools" that work only to usurp any real feeling of success.

I've gotta run for now..the Zombie Walk awaits and I have much preparation to do. I will post pics soon.
