So I’ve been sticking with it, my ankle hasn’t gotten worse, hasn’t gotten any better, but not worse. Today I had my best 5 miles since I got back to it. I had time after to get showered, get dressed, get to the store and stop at the pharmacy to weigh myself. I’ve been staying strict to filling out the food diary, and not snacking. Got myself a pineapple and some kiwis and whipped up a lovely fruit salad. All this, and I’m already down 2 kg (about 4.4 lbs). If I keep this up I’ll be back in fighting shape by the middle of April.
I’m not going to stay long and write much tonight. I just finished dinner and it’s past 11pm. I haven’t even washed the dishes yet and I just can’t sleep with a sink full of dishes, it just does not happen. So, I actually just did that before I even finished this.
That’s the thing. I didn’t like that the dishes weren’t washed, so I changed it. I don’t like that I’m putting on weight again, so I’m changing it. I’m not hoping things will change, I’m not wishing things would change, I’m not praying things would change. I’m taking matters into my own hands. It’s the only thing that will ever work. Complaining about it won’t help, the only thing is to work to make a change.
Some people think I’m an “extremist” or a “radical”, but the truth of the matter is, I see what is wrong, and I know I need to act to change it. Things need to change, and there are some points-of-view which are useless to helping. Because there are philosophies out there to intentionally cause harm, and we don’t need that. So let’s ignore those people, and certainly let’s not vote for them.
Have fun, keep running, and remember; if Gil can run then so can you!
