Hey you's guys.
Just letting you know I'm taking an unplanned blog break this week.
Why you ask?
I have a friend coming to stay for three days.
She'll be in Bootcamp here - learning to cook and eat right, exercise and I'm going to talk to her til I'm blue in the face - about choices, and feeling good - and the emotional and mental battle of making positive changes in your life.
My head feels like it's going to expode every time I have a friend that tells me how horrible they feel when they are living on junk food.
And then -
This weekend -
I'm doing the Chicago Half Marathon.
I'm walking it.
Been training the last few months.
Yesterday I did my 13 mile walk - and this week I taper off so that I'll be fresh as a daisy for Sunday's race - but I'm not racing -
In fact, I might be the last to finish, and I'm OK with that.
Because I'm going to finish.
And when I cross that line this comng Sunday, it will be so incredibly symbolic for me that I actually finished something - cause y'all know I'm a great starter, and a horrible finisher.
But it's a new dawn of a new day.
Remember the upstairs bedroom?
Ummm, and the porch?
Oh that's only the tip of the unfinished iceberg around here.
Something's gotta change - and I've lived long enough to realize it's usually me.
I already know it's going to be my 'word' for 2012.
When did that happen.
SO...I'll be back next week and tell you all about the race, and the thrill of victory, and the agony of my feet.
Have a fabulous week!!!
