I know, I know. The scale fluctuates during the week....but I just want to be out of the 160's FOREVER!
After feeling a little deflated, I wanted to stay at home. Play on FaceBook or stalk blogs or chat with friends.
But. I laced up my shoes and stuck Bubba in his stroller. At first, I didn't want to run. (Remember, I HATE running with a stroller!?) So I walked. Up the mountain. Literally.
Sure, the climb was tough. My legs burned! But I was moving when I didn't want to be, and I was proud of myself for doing it anyway...
(Literally, the entire 1.5 miles up was about this steep!)
It was an absolutely beautiful morning! Only like 66 degrees outside! I LOVED it! I LOVE FALL! The sun was shining and the song "I have been blessed" by Martina McBride came on my iPhone. It was then that my smile returned as I reflected on just how blessed I am! My heart is very full of gratitude today for all that I have.
After finishing (and I even added a little running into the mix) I was so glad I took that first step out the door. You know the step I'm talking about...the HARDEST step to take! If I wouldn't have taken that step, I would have missed this beautiful view today....and the awesomely cool weather!
