I have a destination in mind. When we travel I'm excited about arriving, but I also thoroughly enjoy the journey. We see new things, new places, new people and sometimes get to taste new food. I enjoy that. I have a destination in mind now too.
I have a healthy me in mind. I want to hurry up and get there, but it's a long journey there, not an airplane ride with nearly instant results. Along the way so far I've found I love Falafel pita's (new food), and that I'm enjoying jogging (new things), and even like lifting weights and doing strength training. I'm considering running a 5K in the fall, that will be a new place. I now know the names of a few and the faces of all the regulars at the Y in the early morning.
Sometimes on a trip we reach a place in our travelling where it feels like we'll never ever get there. It feels like we're barely moving and we'll never make it. "Are we there yet?!" That's where I sit right now. But I know that I will. I know that I have made progress. I would have to go backwards to get to where I started. I'm moving towards my goal. I'm getting there.
Weight today 195, total lost 16lbs, and 23 inches.
Today I walked doing hills, 2.9 miles in 49 minutes, jogging the last 9 minutes. That's just today. I've covered miles and miles in my early morning exercising and despite being in the same place location wise I'm getting there physically. :)
