And by "We've", I mean me - and all other severely overweight people. And I am not talking about emotional growth - I am talking physical growth, girth, padding....fat. I realized this weekend that I should have had classic cars on my list of enemies of the overweight girl!
This weekend I walked (slowly) my 2nd 5K - it was called From the Heart in Owatonna. Thank you to Nina for walking with me! I was having a week, last week, where I did not want to do anything. I had to give myself pep talks to get any exercising done - and that continued into Saturday. I didn't feel like doing the walk - so I really appreciate Nina putting up with me! They also had a 1/2 marathon which a few friends (shout out to Mitz, Dawn, Kelly & Molly for doing the longer run! Kelly had her personal best time - Congrats!!) From there I got ready and out to the church for my grandparent's 60th anniversary (you read that correctly - 60th!!! Shout out to Ed & Kay! It is amazing - who likes each other that long?!?!) party. It went really well. We got cleaned up and headed back to my parents' house for more family bonding.
The unfortunate part of my weekend was that I pretty much ate like crap (Bars, dips, pizza, buffalo chicken sandwiches, french fries). The good news is that I did get some exercise on Saturday, and I did get back to eating right and going to the gym today. I'm trying to cut myself some slack. I can't live and simultaneously never eat things that are bad for me. Well....I probably could - but I am not sure I would count it as "living".
Happy Monday, all!
