who cares, my scale is all effed up any ways!!
Tomorrow I have the Color Me Rad 5K and it is going to be cold and possibly raining. Normally this would be a reason for skipping it. But to be honest the cold and the rain aren't going to scare me this time. I know it is still going to be a GREAT time and I am looking forward to it. This is another change I have made, I stopped making excusing for not doing things. I registered and I am going to run this sucker. Before I would just say, ehhhhh they can have my money, I am not going to run in the rain and cold. But the rain and cold is what makes this a challenge and a memory you won't forget. So I will be there tomorrow ready to run this sucker with my friends and family.
So this is why I am doing all of this. Because it is a life style change and not a diet. I may not be at my goal weight yet, but I have met some pretty awesome goals already. I will have some bad days, but over all I am pretty happy with myself. Who cares what that scale says?? Well I do, it helps me stay accountable, but it isn't the only thing that makes me happy on this journey. Yes losing pounds feels pretty darn awesome, but pushing myself to another limit feels pretty darn awesome too. Constantly challenging myself feels pretty darn awesome as well. So I am going to move forward and keep working towards ALL my goals.
Today is a win for me. Normally when I would get this depressed I would just quit and go have a candy bar or something unhealthy, but today I will eat my banana and think about the race I am going to run tomorrow and know that I can finish it!!
I am also doing it for this little guy. I want to be around to see all his smiles!! I want to make memories with him!!
I hope you all have a good weekend folks. I know I will even if the weather is crappy and cold. I will be outside enjoying MY life. I only have one life, I might as well make the best of it!!
Also, thank you all for the prayers for my friend and her husband. I am hoping that next week I will have some good news to report to you. He is finally off his medication and is slowly making progress. He still hasn't woke up, but he is getting there. So keep praying, it is WORKING!!! Thank you!!
