Yesterday was my day off from the gym! I use Thursdays to recoup and make up time at work. I did take Moses on a long walk, well until he laid down and dug in those little paws. Wimp! Since he wasn't any help to get me steppin, I pulled weeds and watered all the plants. I still need to sweep the patio but damn it is too hot.
I was talking to a dear friend last night that is on this same journey. She has done amazing things so far and I am really proud of her. We were discussing how our lives have been put on hold because of our commitment to losing weight. Right now, I spend tons of time in the gym and not with my peeps. It's frustrating that so much time and effort has to be devoted to the cause. However as frustrating as it is, being fat is detrimental to my life. There will be a point when I can find a routine that let's me maintain a healthier weight. But I'm not there yet. So for now, I can't do all the those fun things during the week because my priority is me and turning my life around. The weekends will have to suffice until I'm a better me!
In the category of really great news: My mom saw her oncologist yesterday and she is still kicking butt! She will be 11 years cancer free next week! I am still amazed by the medical miracles that saved her life. When she was diagnosed with Stage IV NH-Lymphoma, I was prepared for the worst but after loads of chemo and a stem cell transplant, she's won that battle and every battle since then. I love you mommy!!
