I did finally have my frozen yogurt!! Let's see, it's been about 2 years and it was pretty yummy. After that we went and saw "Super 8" and we had buttered popcorn. THIS is where I should have not given in. I wasn't hungry, I just wanted to munch. So I did eat way too many calories. But, lesson learned. I told Brent I don't want to have movie popcorn again for a LONG time. I don't need it. I went through my whole weight loss months without it and was fine! But it was fun for one night.
And this morning.... we went running. And guess what? I ran 3 miles without stopping! ... in 36 minutes!!! I totally wasted my man!!! It felt so great. Here I am in Brent's "shed" after the run.
Something about jogging just brings my emotions out. As I was finishing the last 1/2 mile, I thought about the book I've read called "Running with Angels" about an obese woman who lost her weight walking and running. I thought about my angel parents and imagined them running with me. Finally... I feel that they would be pleased with me! You know, I bear their names. Marjorie and Eugene - they put their own names together to come up with Margene. I used to not like my name. Finally, I can represent their names and honor their legacy of love, service and devotion to the Lord. I finally don't see myself as their obese loser daughter! I can't even express how amazing and liberating that feels for me. Brings tears to my eyes.
Today, we're off to see some of our homes. One of these homes will most likely be our own home in just about a month. And we're so excited to finally get pets. Here is my little guy with "Ellie"... my brothers dog.
This kid needs his own dog, I tell ya. It is SO fun to see him playing with Ellie.
I hope you, my friends, have a wonderful day and make good choices and enjoy your life because it is good!!
