The picture is not for the faint of heart. (Project 190, Day Twenty-Five)

That picture, on the left, is what I looked at this morning as I cooled down from my run.  It's not a pretty sight, but it's better than it was 25 days ago.  (That's my shirt, by my knee, and my cool-down glass of milk by the edge of the carpet.)


One of these days, I will have to put a picture of the hills that mark the end of my run, whichever way I go.  But I don't take a camera with me when I run.

To give you an idea of how long they are, though, today, when I ran up the hill at the end, I started the song "(I Was Born A) Unicorn" by The Unicorns:


And it took me longer than that song to get to the top of the hill.

(But I did it.)

Today's workout: Running, outside, 20:24.
Latest weight: 252.
Bonus song that I began my run with and which put me in a great mood as I jogged atop a hill that showed me an entire valley filled with mist and the two cranes and the sun coming up behind me:

Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes, Paul Simon:

As snarky as I tend to be, I'm happy to see your attitude. I threw away my third cupcake today at work. It was a powerful moment. It's the little victories that lead to big ones.

Three comments for 3 cupcakes?

>sigh< I'm going to have to give up writing and get back into doing push ups.
