Oh My Goodness, I'm the Tortoise!

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

emoticon I knew I was out of shape, but reality hit me in the face today. I wanted to cry because I've let myself get so out of shape, but instead I laughed because I now know what it's like to be the emoticon in the story about "The Tortoise and the Hare". Did I want to give up, yes I did, but I wouldn't let myself. I'll be catching up to that old emoticon in the near future and wave bye bye as he slumbers waiting for me. This time I'm going to be like the emoticon , slow and steady to finish the race. If the emoticon can beat the emoticon in the race I can defeat my self sabotaging behaviors in my weight loss journey. I'm not going to let them control me this time around. So this old tortoise is going to keep planning, keep tracking, keep blogging, keep eating healthy and keep exercising my way to my weight loss goal, in 10 pound increments at a time until all the weight I want to loose is off. My race officially started yesterday and Im off at a slow steady pace, a pace that I can keep up with!

    Slow and steady. Staying the course. Pushing ahead. emoticon

    I went for a walk with my DH yesterday. I was very happy when he asked to turn around and head back. I was so tired. I need to get myself back in shape too!

    Just keep taking 1 day at a time and you will cross the finish line before you know it. 🏃‍♀️
