Just kidding, there is no real joy.
I do enjoy helping the kids finish out the school year strong so that they aren't left behind. I don't enjoy spending the beginning of my summer in a classroom . It is what it is. I'm here, I'm making the best of it.
I know exactly what I plan to do with the extra cash. My hubby has been promising me for years to take me to Mackinaw Island, MI. I love the movie "Somewhere in Time" and I've been dying to see the Grand Hotel. He's finally taking me this summer for our 20 year wedding anniversary. Wow, 20 years. I've been married 20 years! It's crazy. What's even crazier is that I've kept my weight off 10 YEARS! Jan. 1, 2019 marked 10 years that I started my weight loss journey that turned into a life style change.
I still run, I still hate to work out.
I'm back to doing Jillian's beginner shred. I'm on day 10 today. My pants zipped up pretty easy this morning. I like that I know my body so well. I know that if I get a little off track, I can get a little stricter with myself, workout a little more and everything is already a little better.
I'm running every other day, about 2 miles. On the weekends I bump up the mileage. I even have a running buddy. My 14 year old has joined me and I really like the company. When I started this, he was 4 years old, and I was the biggest I'd ever been in in my whole life. If you would have told me, "Hey, in 10 years, you'll be running every other day together to keep in shape!". I would have laughed so hard, I would have split my PJ pants.
In July, we head off to Michigan with several stops on the way. I'm looking forward to spending time with my husband and I want to look good in my vacation clothes that I just bought. (I don't buy smaller sizes, I buy the size I wear, but just losing 10 lbs. make them look a tad better, always)
It's still a journey and I'm still on it. I'm loving life and living it...healthy and strong.
