Holy cow! This is my 500th post. Really? That seems so weird. I never dreamed I could stick with this for so long. I love this blog and friendships I have from our little community.
Yesterday I walked the Heart Walk 5K. My father received a heart transplant years ago. He got the heart of a 20 year old Marnie who lost his life in a car accident. I have the obit. He passed away in 1996. He got a 7 year life extension. My husband died of a heart attack at age 36. I walked for both of them yesterday. My body held up and I could went farther. Glad that I didn't as by the night I was feeling achy in my legs and feet. Kind of like they are nervous. The walk was lots of fun and free stuff. I ate breakfast there before we headed out across the bridge. The pic is of my buddy and me pre-race.
I did go dress shopping. No dress but I did end up getting some really cheap stuff for next year. I then went and got something to eat. Came home got all already for some hulu and relaxation and forgot I was suppose to meet my friend for dinner so I can check out her new man. I was so full I was uncomfortable by the time dinner was over I wanted to barf. Sorry, sad but true. I am still full this morning. It's raining here, but I am going to try to get out some time today for a walk or a bike ride. I am feeling achy this morning. I hope I am not getting sick. I have been so lucky this winter. I have yet to get sick. Knocking on wood....
So I have heart disease in my family. I am still 50 lbs over weight. I thought alot about that yesterday. I wish I could light a fire under my ass. I am the only one who can. Looking at myself in the mirror over and over assessing myself in dress after dress yesterday was depressing as well. I am proud of that fact that I have still loss 80 lbs over all. Yet I want to finish what I started. I really do. Not for a wedding or an event, but for myself. It's so true for me that when I feel out of control it shows up on my body.
I know what to do. I just need to start slow. Start by drinking more water and walking more regularly. I think I am going to have to start walking after work if L.L. is going to be a nut job about me leaving. I have made a big pot of WW chili. I will get to eat all the fruit and veggies I can manage. Need to go stock up on that kind of stuff.
Want to go out and see the Gkids today, but we'll see. Gas is ridiculous so I am trying to cut back. 60 mile round trip. Ouch.
Have a great Sunday. Keep the mood and the food real......
