2010 here we end
Friday, December 31, 2010
Most of the blogs I have viewed and read today are about New Year's resolutions. I have a few of those as well, but instead of listing those I am going to list 2010 accomplishments.
I have lost 40 pounds this year and kept it off. This is huge. I've lost weight before but keeping it off was always more difficult. I still have more to lose and I will get there.
I ran a 5k. I couldn't run from one utility post to the next one at the beginning of the year, and by May I could run 3 miles. I can still run some, but can't run that far at the moment. I will be able to do so though. I have DH out buying me a reflective vest so that I can run after dark. That should make it easier.
I biked 20 miles in a day. I have plans to do 46 in one day but my schedule hasn't worked out yet to do so. I will though. I am still amazed that I can do that.
I can wear some of my younger sister's clothes (and in fact some of my older sisters too).
I can wear some of my husband's shirts. In fact, I've stolen one of his long sleeve shirts from him. The sleeves are a bit long, but I can button it and everything (even around my hips).
I received a shirt for Christmas that is too big. Too big, not too small, too big.
My c-section scar doesn't get sore anymore. Nuff said.
I am not the heaviest mom of the k class. And at least one of the fathers (besides DH) is older than me. Maybe another mother too. The father that is older than me happens to be a cousin of mine - that was a funny story - which is how I know how old he is. I would have been the heaviest if I hadn't lost and kept off the pounds.
I'm sure there are more accomplishments I could think of if I had a bit more time, but my two greatest accomplishments (L & S) call.
