First Step

Today was tough.  I didn't want to go out and exercise.  The scale shows me up from Monday when I hit my awesome milestone.

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!
