Last week I was on the bike at the Y.
My ipod was cranked as loud as it could go, so I was pretty oblivious to everything around me.
There was a seriously old guy on the bike next to me.
He tapped my shoulder, and I took out my headphones.
I thought he was going to say something like, “You sure are working hard.”
Or maybe he was going to ask about Lose to Win since I had my green shirt on.
But all he said was, “You sweat a lot.”
I wasn’t sure if he was complimenting me or insulting me.
I wish I had said this:
Right after that one of the lifeguards said, “You’ve lost A LOT of weight.”
That’s 2 people I don’t know at the Y who have noticed my progress.
I’ll take one old dude commenting on how sweaty I am for every 2 people who randomly compliment me.
Yesterday I ran a 5k race.
After I took 2 spin classes.
And I ran it 2 minutes faster than last year.
I’m a little sore today.
Yesterday afternoon my husband was outside with the kids.
My awesome neighbor came over with a delivery.
Number 3 saw her and said, “Hey Dad! Someone is here selling cookies!”
Here’s what she brought over:
I guess she thought I needed a little extra challenge.
10 weeks ago I would have polished off at least one of those things by myself.
But I didn’t eat one single bite.
The kids, on the other hand, had some serious dessert last night.
My will power may be stronger, but it’s not teflon strong yet.
I know my limits.
Nine weeks down.
Three to go 🙂
