Slam dunked another goal over the weekend - got over 8,000 steps in one day. I was going to get myself an awesome new mug to celebrate, but my husband beat me to it! He picked up a humorous little cup while he was out in Denver and it was perfect timing for my newest achievement. This is the most steps I have gotten in one day since the surgery. Now, I've got my sites set on 9,000. I also had to buy new dress pants. My last remaining and smallest pair finally got too big to wear. I finally got to officially downsize to a size 18W. We're making progress. I also got a fancy new hair cut, and lifted a 30 pound bag on dog food all by myself.
Some days, the little things add up to a big ole smile on my face. This is day 36 without soda or cheese, and I didn't go on a bender when I visited Salina this weekend. I had a few indulgences, but nothing too extreme and nothing in massive quantities - I'm saving that splurge for Thanksgiving! I'm still working on gearing up for the Bubble Run 5K this coming July. I'll walk it, but it will be my biggest fitness challenge post operation.
I've also decided to add to my Manadee tattoo. I found the most perfect and awesome addition. It's small and simple, but oh so me and just what I need to keep up the motivation! I promise I'll share pictures after I get it (still not sure when I'll fit it in between the Holidays). Thanks to all of my faithful readers who keep me writing, and keep me accountable. Sharing my journey with you has been an awesome privilege, and I look forward to many more blogging adventures!
