This weekend was a chance for me to center myself. I desperately needed time outdoors and time with my family. My life kinda runs away with itself and there are moments that I have to pull back. Ryan, Caleb and I are all three high energy people, but sometimes I run out of steam. I am an introvert and I have to recharge.
Ryan understood exactly what kind of weekend I needed and he started our garden. When my husband does something, he is quite meticulous. Everything has to be square and cut in perfectly. Our intention is to keep our garden strictly organic and to maintain everything naturally. I have never grown anything, but Ryan has.
He showed me how to run the equipment and turned me loose! I loved it!!! Caleb was with his grandparents for the day so it was just the two of us working together. I really enjoy working beside my husband and laughing with him.
I also need to give my husband some awesome credit as well! He has been losing weight with me since the holidays and has done such an amazing job! I think he's down about 30 pounds himself!!!
On Sunday we went to church and then took Caleb to the park. It was absolutely gorgeous outside. My little boy is doing great riding his bike and I was so proud of him. He rode for about two and a half miles and did really well for a 6 year old. He got fairly tired at the end.
I can remember pushing his stroller along this same trail when he was a few months old. I was obese and it felt like such a battle to walk this trail. On Sunday it was an easy stroll. Sometimes I am reminded of how different my life is now after my weight loss and I still stop to celebrate those little things! I don't think it will ever get old no matter how long I've been on this journey. It's still amazing to me that I could do it. I just feel so thankful most days.
