I’m home back in Oregon now and life is fun and crazy. It’s like the inside of the cyclone sort of. Tonight I have a DJ event I am doing by myself. Loading, driving, unloading, setting up, MCing, running music, taking down, etc .... all without Brent. For some reason, I am extremely nervous as I want this event to go well and not have any probs w/ the equipment or vehicle or finding the place. Knowing that it’s just me is a lot of pressure. But I’ve done this for years - albeit, usually with somone.
There is also no food in the house - except for a couple bunches of VERY ripe banana’s that were left while I was gone. So.... I made banana bread. Yum. Oh banana... how I have missed thee! Your yummy sweetness, your enjoyable smell... oh banana how I love thee warm and moist... Banana bread makes everything right, doesn’t it? Except I shouldn’t eat too much of it.
The scale shows me at 138 today. I was so pleased to be under 140 after my trip to Utah. Traveling can throw you off and it’s hard to get all my water in. I meant to go running this morning but didn’t get to it... if I don’t have someone to go with I easily just end up not going. But I did ride my bike to the bank so there’s a few miles. It is beautiful outside and I am so thankful to be with my girls again and I know there are bright things in the future. So I am plowing through today and hope I survive!
I also am signed up for another 5k in a couple weeks. I walked this exact 5k last year after I’d lost some of my weight. How awesome to come back this year and run it! I am so thankful that I’ve gotten to this point in my life where I can finally do this. It is so liberating to feel capable and I know where my strength comes from and will never forget that!
I’ve been trying not to have soda but today I'm going to drink some diet Dr. Pepper and hope these butterflies take a break.
Take care, my friends! XoxoxOX ~Margene
