14 down. I started running again which is making the weight come off more slowly. I really wish there was some one in charge of weight loss that I could negotiate about what total nonsense it can be. Either way, running is good for my brain and I know it is doing good things for my body even if the scale doesn’t acknowledge that.
On a more…charming…note.
Many of you found my little corner of the internet through Style Me Pretty’s feature on our wedding. Today, I would like to direct you all to TheEverygirl (where you should really be going on TheEveryday) and read their interview with her about her company Oh How Charming (did you see what I did up there and that pun??). I wrote the intro and I really means it. Lisa has been such a wonderful person in my life, and I miss the time we spent together planning my wedding.
As I go through life, more and more I run across “no” and “can’t do” people. Lisa is the ultimate “can do” person, which is an awesome character trait to have on your team, but is also so personally inspiring. What would we all do if we knew we couldn’t fail?
I may have mentioned this before, but my 4th Grade class had to memorize this poem and recite it to the school and my brain being the precious sponge it was then, I still remember it and it reminds me of Lisa.
“There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure; There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start to sing as you tackle the thing/ That ‘couldn’t be done’ and you’ll do it.” -E.A.G
