Holy chin! The summer I didn't have my son will

Sunday, April 10, 2011

Wow. Check out the chin. I have managed not to grab a pic recently at such an angle. I could have pressed delete, but acknowledging this picture should do me more good than bad.

So where were we when I last made the attempt to get back in shape? Ah yes, I was about the same weight, just south of 230. But now I have tripped 40 on the age odometer. Moving hurts a little more, things seem heavier. My son gets bigger while I get weaker.

I have big plans for this summer. My son just turned 7. The same age I was when my father got in an car accident that left him in a wheel chair for the last 20 years of his life. He and my mother were getting divorced at the time, so i don't know how things would have played out anyway. I have been thinking a lot about all the things I should not be doing. So, this week I'm going to start eating breakfast and exercising again, plus I'm going to stop doing two things, pizza and ice cream.

So here we go...

    Funny....we both have the same goals. Perhaps we should work on them together? Convenient since we live in the same house! Oh and that 7 year old needs to jog with his mama more often. Big laughs for everyone! Let's hit that trail Lee! We can do it together! XXOO
