A bit about me

Today it's about me.  Without getting too personal, I wanted to show my progress.  On my birthday, in February, I decided it was time to do something for me.  I've been eating smarter and exercising..... on purpose.  This is the last weekend before going back to school (students have one more week of summer break).  

To celebrate summer coming to an end, I wanted to do something big.  I have been walking 5k just about every day this summer.  When I can't walk, I ride my bike.  Today I rode.  I wanted to tackle a trail friends talk about but didn't want to go solo.  We went 21.5 miles.  There was even a downpour of rain the last 3+ miles.  I'm proud of myself.  I even had my friend take a picture to show my progress.  

To date, I've lost a good amount (I'm not ready to share how much yet).  People ask me if I can tell a difference.  I'm getting there.
 The day I decided to make a change.
