I almost didn't post today. Almost.
It's been a bumpy week back from vacation, as it usually is, and I'm embarassed, frankly. I'm embarassed that my workouts haven't been top notch, and my eating has been bottom notch. I've gained another 2 pounds. And I'm really beating myself up.
But...I've begun turning things around. Yesterday was better than the day before, and today will be better still.
I've also mapped out my 6 miles for tomorrow mornings training jog.
But I'm not posting to tell you of my foibles. I'm posting to tell you I'm still standing. I'm still pushing. I'm still working. And I'm still moving forward. I refuse to give up. There's too much at stake. And too many people (including one unexpected person who I'm proud to support in his future endeavors) counting on me!
This team leader will not give in. Things will get better slowly - as they always do.
And maybe this is a good moment to remember that even Casey Jr. had a tough time getting up that hill. But he thought he could. And he made it.
And so will I.
And so will you.
And so will we.
MAIN STREET AWAITS!
