A New Little Friend

Three weeks ago, when my hubby sent me shopping for myself (something I've not done in a long time), I bought a new outfit for myself. I love the new outfit, the problem is, I didn't enjoy the shopping one bit, and I most definitely didn't like what I saw in the mirror either. I detest myself for allowing myself to gain as much weight as I have in the past 12 years.

Anyhoo....I decided then and there, I had to work harder to lose the weight, especially for my health. It's been raining alot here lately, so I've been busting my fanny, using the Wii and working out with weights. I had to stop the weights though, because I hurt my arm, so it was just the Wii, until today. Last night I asked hubby to watch the kids do their studies, while I go walking at the track across the street from us (something I haven't done since March), he said no problem. 

I was determined to push myself and walk 4 miles. I asked God for the strength, because I knew I would probably give up at two. I grabbed my smartphone (has MP3 on it), headset, wallet, and keys, and off I went. I did get in the four miles, with only my feet aching. 
This little guy decided to join me the first two miles.....I guess he just couldn't hack the other two, LOL. He belongs to someone who lives around the track, and he's played with my children before. He's sweet as can be :)
