I think it’s going to….wait for it….STOP RAINING today! I know, I know, I gripe about the rain a lot. The rain in the Seattle area is why we moved to Albuquerque. I will TRY hard to appreciate the rain (now that summer’s coming on and it will be sunny most of the time).
Before I get going, I wanted to share a wonderful post I read on a new blog. Check on the post called “All About Control” on “One Day at a Time”. Her post is…it’s just so helpful. Read it, please. Within the post, Lauren links to another site, new to me, called “Tiny Buddah” and a very good post there called “50 Things You Can Control Right Now”. I think it’ll open your eyes to what you can handle and what you don’t need to worry about. Good stuff.
Ok, my run yesterday: Yay! It was Grrreat! I did the whole 6 miles alternating 1 minute running and 1 minute walking and when I got tired I switched to 30 seconds/30 seconds until I felt more lively. I ran for a total of 44 minutes out of the 1:30 or so and really got a workout without being completely and utterly exhausted at the end. I’m in love I tells ya, in LOVE with this kind of running.
If you’re looking for some new blogs to try, check out my sidebar for some new entries. I took the cue from Mary at “A Merry Life” and added some new blogs. I know it’s probably just me but I really like reading people who update almost every day. I know, I’m greedy like that. But if you’re like me, it gives you a boost, a shot in the arm for the day and makes you remember what you’re doing and where you’re heading when you read about what other people are doing. I figured if I can’t find many people who update more than a couple of times a month, maybe I’d just pack my sidebar with more people. I’m a FAST reader, people. I need more content :-)
Heading into the weekend now. A confession: For some reason, I don’t know why, when I hit the 40 pound loss I started thinking, yeah, I probably won’t lose much now, or as fast or as consistently. I don’t know why, but it just started seeming sort of impossible to keep on losing. This morning when I weighed, I realized that…WOW, I’ve actually hit 44 pounds lost now! I’m almost at the 50 pound mark!
It doesn’t make any sense to my mind, which apparently is having trouble digesting and believing all of this, but I’ve decided that I don’t HAVE to believe it’s happening or is going to happen, I just have to keep doing the good work. What happens, happens. It’s just science, I remind myself, work out, eat right, lose weight. It’s just science.
