I’m excited….

Well I am cuz you know why? Today I went and exercised…….no that’s not it at all because if I had my way I would of stayed in bed and slept the morning away. But I didn’t, I went and worked out. I have to share, I just have to because 9 months ago I couldn’t of even did 1/100th of what I did today. I have to tell you guys, it’s because of you that this is possible. I know, it’s me too but if it wasn’t for Allan’s challenge, Steve’s hotties, Charlie’s train to onderland I would of just been fumbling around on my own doing what I could and sorta just leaving the rest alone.

Anyway, my sharing. I ran 3 minutes, 11 minutes and a 6 minute out of 30 today. That’s 20 full minutes of running, I know not in a row but I’m not counting that yet. I ran a 25:45 2 miles. I found a pace I can do, 4.6mph at a 1% grade. 9 months ago I couldn’t go pole to pole, or down my driveway without huffing and puffing and feeling like I was going to pass out. I’m learning to breath too. They say it will come but I really had my doubts.

I also snuck a peek on that new scale, yes I hated the fact I had to go from the 180’s back into the 190’s with the new scale but it won’t last more then a couple of weeks and I’m not going to say it’s a set back, just another challenge. On Sunday the scale said 194.4, today it says 192.4. If this keeps up I’ll at least have a minus this week in the numbers. We’ll find out for sure on Sunday for Allan’s weigh in.

Okay I am off to take my parents for a drive, a breakfast out (yes Allan I’ll stay on course) and to an old school house that is full off good things to look at and wish for.

Take care my friends and have a blessed day today. I’m going to do my best.
