If at First You Don’t Succeed, Just Sit and Enjoy the View.

Other than exercising portion control and smarter food choices, we are exercising our bodies. Yesterday Chuck and I decided to take a walk around the LSU Lakes with our friend Michael. We knew that we needed to start out slow, so we decided to walk the short path, but halfway through I knew I wouldn’t be able to even complete that. I asked Chuck and Michael to finish the walk, get the car and come back to pick me up. I’d sit and enjoy the beautiful sites the lake had to offer; the ducks playing, the turtles resting in the sun on their logs and all the hot, healthy people that were running past me as I sat under the shade tree. I was pissed, embarrassed and in pain, but I’m not giving up. I will now spend some time on the treadmill, until I feel secure enough to give the lakes another try, the important thing is not giving up.
