Day 81 Really? On a Monday?

Look how close I am getting to day 90!! Woo hoo for me. Don't even really know why I think day 90 is cool. Which leads me to my post for the day. Some days, I just get in the best moods and get all excited about the future and day dream away how things are going to be! Today, I was all smiles when imagining my graduation, I had this vision of me at 180 pounds, I saw me at my first Quorum Court meeting voting on some issue before us, I even saw me in a suit in some Court room making my argument to the judge. I think that is the best thing to come from this journey. I have always been a positive thoughts about the future guy, but my thoughts are even better and clearer now that I know that my future is so much bigger. I know I won't be put in the pine box for my ignorance and unwillingness to change my eating and exercising ways. I guess that I am officially doing the good kind of hoping, not the bad. This hope doesn't leave room for failure, it doesn't give you that option of bowing out. This hope is the one that makes all you have worked for even that much more cherished. It lets you see what you can be, not what you are probably gonna keep on being. That is the hope I have now. I am glad to have found it too.

I also came up with a solution that was somehow beyond me with its simplicity for my walking problem. I am going to get more laps in the morning! I am only looking at 10 more minutes max if I do that, so I am gonna and get my endurance up even more! I am wondering if I will ever get my laps down to sub 4 minutes? I have gotten it down to 4 minutes 20 seconds from the original lap time of 5 so that is something. I think if i keep building my leg muscles and losing the pounds, I can do it! That is another goal of mine now!

Shane watch football! Bye now!

  4. Just wait until you hit Day 100!!!!! Or, is 90 cooler? Maybe.

    Isn't it amazing that you have the ability to make those healthy choices. For so many years, I truly thought it was out of my control. It's not. And, one healthy choice leads to another...leads to a Fit, buff, Shane in the courtroom!

  6. Keep it up Shane!
    How has the eating been for you? Are you keeping constant and steady with that? I haven't seen any mention of food on your blog in a few days, so I was wondering. How is Kathy doing on her journey?

  7. Knowing that you're helping yourself to get healthier does put a new and better focus on the future. And it's up to Shane to make it come together. I believe he will do it. And I believe he will very soon get the lap time under 4 minutes.

    Rock on, Shane!
