my old friend is back

Mr. Migraine came to visit today and is really sucking the life out of me :(  I guess it is good I haven't had one in almost 4 weeks since my husband and I have started walking.  I will take that as a victory.  My weight hasn't changed in a month of walking an hour a day, but I do believe cutting out sweets like cookies and cake (I only had two bites of chocolate cake on my birthday!) have really helped with the migraines.

I'm also hoping that with all of this walking some of the fat on my butt has dissolved and new muscle is growing.  I'm hoping that my pants will fit differently on Jan 7 when I have to go back to school.  I am NOT defined by the number on the scale.  I keep telling myself that and I think it is finally starting to sink in.

Yesterday my husband ,daughter and I went walking/hiking at a nearby walking trail.  There is a very steep uphill/downhill section and I am happy to say I made it up the hill without any help!  I was breathing really hard and thought I was going to die, but didn't.  I actually enjoy pushing myself to do harder things :)
