The heaviest I will ever be

Friday, January 02, 2009

Last year, drunk on New Years Eve and topping the scale at 166, I joined weight watchers and swore "This is the heaviest I will ever be". I bought a bike, and found that I love riding more than anything else. I lost quite a bit, but them life got REALLY complicated and my interests had to take a back seat.

Today I got on the scale and topped out at 145. This is the heaviest I will ever be. I am squishy, and don't have to strength I had 6 months ago. I am, above all else, an athlete. Tomorow when I wake up, that fact alone will motivate me, and push me past all the garbage than a non-athlete would eat. It will push me in to another 30 minutes at the gym, and an extra 5 miles on the Alibi, weather be damned. It is who I am, fundamentally. I am a cyclist.

I will look back in awe that I ever felt as unfit as I do today. I will ride a metric, then a century and the miles will not amaze me, but will be a routine ride.

Tonight I will go home, have a last beer and toast the fact that tomorow this begins.

    You know you can do this. You have been there before and you can do it again. I admire people with your get up and go. I am trying to do that. I have been dancing and exercising. I am not a runner and don't know if I ever will be. But you have a plan and keep it going. Pam
