10 Years

It's been 10 years since September 11, 2001 today. It doesn't seem like that long ago. The overriding things I remember from that day are some fear of what was happening and a sense of astonishment at the sacrifice of all those first responders. I don't know that I could say I would've showed that amount of bravery. It was amazing to me that people could be that selfless and make that type of sacrifice. I guess I'm just not that brave. Anyways, it just seems like yesterday that it all happened and we gathered around radios and tried to get whatever we could on the internet at work. Many sites were not up as they were inundated with people trying to get news. The memorials that I watched this morning were very nice and the memorial sites at Ground Zero, the Pentagon and Shanksville are impressive. I hope to visit them someday.

Football also started today which is very exciting for me as it's my favorite sport. Right now, I'm watching my Cowboys play the Jets. It's only in the 2nd quarter but the Cowboys are up 7-0, I hope this continues and Dallas can get a win right off.

I've been working this week on doing better. It's been a good week. Today I did some weight work and rode the exercise bike. Not a whole lot right now but more than I've done in awhile. My eating has been very good this week and very good over the weekend which is something I've been struggling with. I need to believe in myself more because I know I can make it through the weekends and still do a good job.

I should have a weigh-in update tomorrow. I need to figure out how I'm going to mark everything and record since it's been quite awhile since my last update. I'm determined to get going again because I need to. I feel sooooo much better and things in my life are good when I'm losing weight and eating better. It's time to reclaim my confidence and getting rolling again. It's just time.
