I still run. Marlene does not.

Just having breezed in the door ….okay, I’ma start over. I didn’t breeze anywhere. *snort* Have you met me?? I downright dragged my butt across the threshold tonight.
Anywho, even though my body went and climbed into bed like 2 hours ago, it’s been quite the week (day, solstice, you name it) and typing it out is good for the soul.
Y’all, can I just say, Marlene is a trooper. After completely just…dying a couple of days ago, my beautiful gift of a car needs an alternator, battery, & serpentine belt. And probably a timing belt, too. (Do ya remember I put 4 new tires on her TWO WEEKS AGO??) But, through the generosity of many, all problems have solutions and I am driving the wheels of a generous lady in my community for the weekend so I am not rushing frantically to repair her. Hallelujahthankyouandamen.
And THEN! Y’ALL….if you don’t know (or if you do know!), one of my resolutions this year was to get to a certain number of pounds. You would die with sticker shock at the number I am at currently, but my goal is to be a minimum of 35lbs lighter. It will be the lightest I’ve been in 15 years.
Unless you count that few weeks I was in Macedonia and walked everywhere and ate lots of fresh awesome food and spent a lot of time in the mountains. I looked mother truckin’ HOTT.
Where is Macedonia? Here:
You have officially been educated.
Where was I? Right. Losing weight. So, with every little marker along the way, I’m celebrating. And today, after running a little over a mile, and chair dips, and push-ups, and plank bridges, and lat pull-downs, and 20mins of dancing, I weighed myself. And I’ve hit the first marker.
We’re at 7 pounds down in the past 2 weeks. As a girl who has struggled with weight constantly, who knew running was the solution? And TODAY, I got these in the mail (courtesy of my FANTASTICAL momma!):
Who am I? All excited about new shoes and stuff.
Wanna go with me? I’d love the company.
And you’ll love how great you feel afterwards.
