Despite having women’s-problems-of-the-most-severe-nature, this morning, you can’t stop me from smiling…. This week, I’ve eaten healthily and well, never felt hungry, found out I can jog a little AND lost 5 lbs.
Even better news for me is that yesterday, despite rushing around Wal-Mart in haste, after work, doing some shopping, I stopped briefly, for a moment, to get my blood pressure taken and it came in as normal with a nice low pulse rate too!
And then I bought my very first pedometer.. just $8 but a good investment and will help me keep track of things to enter into a new app I am running on my computer and iPod called “Runkeeper”
When I think back to this time last year, when I walked I broke into a sweat, crushing lower back pain whenever I walked, headaches, really bad knee joint pain, inability to breathe easily when laying down, and just generally depressed and tearful I KNOW I’ll never return to that.
NOW I think I realize that to get what you want in life you have to want it more than anything and be prepared to make sacrifices and work hard to achieve it. FINALLY I am in control of something in my life and it feels good…
