Today on my journey, I acquired a new descriptor, I am a W.I.M.P. - a Work In Mother-effin Progress....
Let me explain.
Today, I decided to try a new route, a much longer distance than my usual 2.5 to 3 mile loop. I mapped out and opted to do 6 miles. In fact I did 6.23, I walked a 10k, just under 2 hours. I am really super proud of myself for doing it.
This new route is really awesome, I love it, the scenery is changing and there is so much to see, there is enough tree cover that there is some shade across the road for me while I am walking.
What happened, is as I was walking by the high school, the school buses had picked up the children and were leaving the school. One of the buses drove by and a boy stuck his head out the window and called me a "fat ass".
Those words hurt, and they took me right back to high school, and always being the fat one. But it was only for a brief moment that those words took me back. I wouldn't let those harsh words deter me and my goals. I could have turned around and called it a day, but I didn't. In fact, it only pushed me on, and I had my fastest interval of the whole 6 miles.
But I am a W.I.M.P. well duh, of course I am a fat ass, that is why I am out walking, to burn calories and hopefully lose my fat ass...
I will not be derailed on my journey. Stand back bitches... I should just walk by that school everyday.
Whatever doesn't kill me makes me stronger! Weigh in day is tomorrow!
