I love being able to spend some time with you each month in my newsletter musings. I consider myself very lucky to have such a strong network of members, whom I consider my friends!
I have shared some pretty personal things through this newsletter and I have been blessed with some of you who have come up and told me how I inspired them. WOW! Never did I think about being an inspiration! In those dark moments, all I could think about was me and how it affected me, how I felt, and how I hated me. Well, since I now know I can inspire, here is a NEW update!
I have a new hair cut and new lease on life! It's spring and I survived another drab Saskatchewan Winter – I need sunlight! OK, enough rambling, here is to my latest and greatest goal... I am training for a walking marathon! Yup, you heard that right! Focusing on my body means focusing on my mind too and having a fitness goal is where it is at! I have looked into the QCM and Team Diabetes and am currently gathering information to help me work towards my goal. I have created (with the help of the internet), a training plan that will help to keep me focused all summer so that I can be ready for September! I have solicited some awesome neighbours in my community to walk with me when they can and will be doing my 3-4 days of circuit training at Curves of course! I am so excited to share my journey with you. It really helps me to stay true and accountable to myself, knowing that someone is watching!
I know that there will be rough days and dark times that will come upon me; no one is perfect. We all have those moments where our clothes don't fit well or as expected. But I am still losing weight, slow and steady and have found my 'why' so that will help to keep me FOCUSED!
