So much energy!

I have so much more energy. I actually took the kids shopping today. We went out about 11 am and returned about 4 p.m. I could have shopped more, but believe it or not the kids wanted to come home. They were tired. Woooo Hooooo! Cannot believe it. I do not even feel tired. My feet do not ache and I am not dragging, in fact I am quite energized and could go for more. But of course I will be going to work out about 5:30, and then on to church. So I am sure by tonite I will be tired. Oh so nice to have this energy. I cannot remember the last time I felt this good. (before I started this journey)

I need to take an opportunity to thank all those people who read my blog and email me or write comments on my blog. Your support is fabulous and very helpful. I truly am blessed to have so many people who are wishing me the best. It is a good feeling.

I went to work out last night and Mandy tried to kill me. LOL No it was good. I really felt good about what I could do. I was able to walk 4 times around the track this time without too much pain. I took my daughter with me and she actually worked out too. She wants to go back. She thought Mandy was fabulous, and was impressed by what I could do too.

The other day Mandy asked us to sit on the floor with feet together and stretch to touch our toes. Well. If I put my feet together my knees bow out. <> like this, so I just put my knees together. Then my feet were about 4 to 6 inches apart. How nice it will be when my feet can be together without being bull legged. :)

One of my dearest friends gave me an inspirational coat. I absolutely love it! I am going to have to post a picture of it on this blog. Describing it will not do it justice. But here I go with the description. It is a black wool coat with a fur collar and fur on the cuffs. It has fabulous tortoise colored buttons. When you open the coat, the inside is way cool. It brought tears to my eyes. There are color pictures lining the inside of the coat. Pictures of all the things I want to do when I lose my weight and become fit. Things that I mentioned on my blog, things I cannot do now because of my weight. It is so wonderful. She so gets me. She is so cool. This is my friend that has been having seizure problems. Here she is going through so much in her own life, and she takes the time to make me a collage inside a coat. It is a representation of all the things that I will be able to accomplish when I shed my coat of fat. Words cannot describe how much this coat means to me. I just cannot explain it. Thank you. Thank you, Pal. You are the greatest!
