Tom L Mustin. He is awesome because he chose both my mom and me. I thank God for him and I am so blessed because even when it was uncomfortable, my dad has ALWAYS been there for me. He taught me to be tough, fair, honest and generous. I love him to the moon and back.
I am thankful that I am a woman of faith. My faith helps to keep me from jumping when I feel like I am on the edge. My faith allows me to get up and keep moving; even on the days when I feel like I can’t.
I walked A mile the other day at the gym. This may not seem like a big deal to most but for me, its monumental.
I set out to do 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill at least 3x a week. I have been sticking to that and always end up being just under a mile. Well, I decided to ignore the time and make it to a whole mile. My legs felt like limp noodles and I wasn’t sure I would make it to the car afterward but I made it and it felt AMAZING!
It is hard getting back to an active lifestyle after leading a very sedentary life for so long. Finding the motivation to get to the gym is really hard some days but I am sticking with it. I am determined to make positive changes in my life. I no longer want to be held back by the physical and mental limitations I have allowed because of my size and weight.
Working through the hard days makes the reward so much sweeter.
