It has been a WHILE since I have posted. Life man…just life. Last weekend me and the hommies participated in the Seahawks 5K in Renton. It’s were about 20,000 crazy Seahawk fans get dressed up and get their exercise on for some local charities. I have done it every year they have had it and this year I SLOGGED it (SLOG= SlowJog). I didn’t slog the whole thing…I did intervals of slogging and walking but I SLOGGED it more than I walked it! I was and am very proud of myself. That was the first time in my life where I had the energy and endurance and fitness level to do any kind of slogging for any sustained amount of time. Crossing that finish line running was a first…and it will not be the last.
I am coming up on my 1 year 30/10 sign up date. And it has been a YEAR. Releasing my weight has been the biggest struggle I have ever faced or perhaps ever face. Basically, it has been WAY harder than I thought it would be. It HAS been worth it. It has been worth every moment of sadness and despair, every craving and disappointment. I have stuck with it and maintained my lower weight…the numbers have been down more than they have been up and THAT I am very proud of. The proof is in the jersey size 🙂
Thank you again to everyone who has supported and continue to support my journey.
