I don't know if anybody is still reading this as I have really been bad about posting lately. I think this is the longest I went without a post since I started the blog. So what happened?
My weight stabilized and during the worse stress, my OCD kicked into high gear and I had a pizza obsession for several days. Followed by a Coca Cola binge! One of the worse things you can drink, (Diet Coke is the worst!) and frankly, one of the hardest things for me to let go of. I have quit smoking, drinking, Vicodin and fast food but giving up Coke is the single most difficult challenge so far. I can go months without it but then, BAM!, I must have it!
Yet even with all this, I did not gain all the weight back. I'm hovering around 235 lbs. on average.
I also completed a three hour trail run that had The Puppy and I running/hiking along the very top of the highest peaks in Griffith Park. . . Twice! From Los Felis to the Griffith Observatory. Three hours of running and hiking on only a Camebak of water and a single Pure bar. (We never intended to go so far and then figured we could refuel at the Griffith Observatory's snack bar only to arrive and find it closed. Doh!)
Onto what I'm doing to be a better person. Empathy is what I am currently working on most as part of my personal growth. I find increasing my empathy for others really helps me to not judge so much or get angry for stupid reasons. (Road rage?) I'm also working on not thinking of woman as objects. You can read into that however you like.
Lastly, I am opening up the GoFundMe campaign again to try to off set some of the expenses. If you like what I do and want to help, please donate. Thank you!!!
Until next time my friends.
