Maintaining Momentum

Whew - it's tough trying to be healthy... I'm really ready for that day when I wake up and have energy again! I hate waking up and feeling like I haven't slept at all... I feel like the parent of a newborn without even having the joys of the baby!

I woke up tired and sore today - so I struggled with not canceling my walk with my buddies for tonight, but John told me that this is the time when I need to push through it and keep going. The weather here isn't ideal for a walk, but I'm going to do it anyway - unless it's raining when I get home. Jenn is going to come and John will go - so it is keeping me much more accountable than if I were trying to do this without them... so I owe them - BIG!!

I'm on day three of getting all my water in - so that is a major victory for me... if I can keep it up over the weekend - that will be the biggest win of all!

I'll leave today's message short, and send off with a few old pictures of John & I.

This was our engagement picture - taken in 2001.

This was us getting ready to go to a party - taken in 2006.

This was taken right after our engagement in 2001.

Here we are at a Texas A&M game versus Texas Tech in 1999.
It felt like we traveled with the team that year... I was still at A&M and we went to Lubbock for this game, and also went to another game in Oklahoma, and one in Shreveport, Louisiana... then to the bowl game that year, and I ended up having a hospital trip with food poisoning... we stopped traveling for games after that one.
