Back in the saddle...

It's been almost a year (End of September) since I hit my lowest weight (under 250) in this journey. By October, life started getting in the way. In January, I attended my last Zumba class. I let my gym membership lapse. This time it was death, not life, that intervened. As I mentioned previously, my father-in-law was diagnosed with cancer and died just 5 weeks later.  My priorities were on taking care of my family.

Amazingly, my weight has not gone up! This morning I weighed in at 247!

Over the past month, I've started walking again. Not as much  as if like, more than I did the month before. Life continues to offer resistance. My kids are at VBS every night this week. So last night I decided to walk while they were at church. Just as I got to the track, the pastor's wife called. My daughter was sick.  Plans had to change. Tonight, I did make it to the track. But unlike last night's cool, overcast temperature, it was HOT! I checked the temperature AFTER I walked 2 miles.  Oops!

Honestly, I don't know how fast my progress will be. But it will be forward.  Next month, in addition to working full time, I will be homeschooling two kids (6th grade and 11th grade). If that is t enough, I'm going back to school! After almost 25 years, I'm going for my masters!!

I don't know how often I'll make it here to blog, but I'll stop by when I can.
