Today in my everlasting attempt to be healthy and lose weight, I walked 4.1 miles in the park. Now, I have walked in plenty of parks but my new 2 year old park near my house is the first one that it seems as if everyone feels the need to speak to you. I’m not sure if I’m annoyed by that or if I like it. Being the self-conscious person that I am, I often feel like they are watching me and thinking to themselves “oh, look at her out here trying to lose weight.” I know it’s all in my head, but its still how I feel.
This year I am trying to work on getting myself back together. The past year was such a struggle for me. Not only with my weight gain, but also financially. My good credit and good finances were some of the few things that I always felt that I had in hand. The economy and lost wages completely tore that to shreds. I’m working on it all though. My mom would definitely not be happy with my credit situation right now. One of the best pieces of advice that she gave me was to NEVER mess up my credit. It won’t be for long though. I will have it in hand this year. That is a promise.
