1) Completed my 4 miler today - slow and steady. My interval timer is helping with my 30 minute workouts - and the long runs will catch up. This week's schedule: T - 30; Th - 30; Sa - 2miles.
2) Regarding the "weight loss surgery" conversation. First of all - I agree with all of you - I don't want to have it. Secondly - all I said was that we're going to evaluate my progress at my birthday and if I'm still struggling after devoting all my energy to weight loss - then we'll consider all other options. Hadn't decided on one yet. And hopefully won't have to. :)
But I LOVE ALL OF YOU for the comments! (Yes, even you mgreene - although you missed the point of the "line in the sand" analogy by simply asking why the "before" hadn't happened - some of it did - some of it is still - and some of it didn't. Regardless - I'm moving forward)
At my doctor's suggestion I have an appointment with a dietician on Tuesday to help me with my progress and hopefully avoid that "other" conversation. I really like and trust my doctor. And she's not pushing any one course, just wants me to succeed.
That all being said.
Ten years ago we as a country were damaged.
And today we remember it. And honor the fallen. And pledge to do good with our lives.
Let's all do one good thing for someone else today.
THAT is what America is.
