The Day After

Well yesterday was a great day. Walked 2 miles before work. I am going to get a pedometer. What is a good one? That way I will know how much I am really walking. I ate well yesterday, everything OP. My son had a great B-Day. A sweet friend, whose family owns the school made him a double chocolate cake. I did not budge. I really do not like chocolate. He was in heaven. We sang happy birthday. He got like a million litle kid hugs and lots of pats on the back, I work for awesome people! I am so grateful for that!

We went to a park for a bring your dinner and then he had another cake. It was kind of last minute, and just a few people came. He was so totally happy with his day. I thought he might have taken today off so he could go out and party with his frineds, but he was in bed by 9 pm. He has to get up at 5:25 am every morning. He is a great kid, and I am a lucky mom. I have so little worries with either child.

I was noticing last night how easy it was for me walk around at the park. We "hiked" back away from the pond ( too many toddlers ). I found it so easy. I almost sat down right there on the sidewalk and cried. It just feels so freaking GOOD. I like to be able to wear everything in closet, for the most But it is a different feeling entirely then the JOY and GRATITUDE I felt last night. I am grateful for my willingness to follow thru on me. To be able to follow thru and being truthful to myself. I have told myself millions of time that I will start the process and eat better and move more, but sadly never followed thru. I would tell myself that even when I knew for sure it was a lie. Today I feel a measure of self confidence and a sense that maybe I really am worth it! I know for sure that that is the key to loosing and maintaining your weight.

Have a good grateful
