Sorry about not blogging for a little while. My blog was out of order. I’ll fill you in on the details because they’re kinda funny?
He had received an email about a problem on one of the sites and without really thinking about it, he just deleted the file.
That file was my blog.
Funny how on that exact day, I sat down to write up a blog. When I tried to log in, my blog was *POOF*
I asked MFH about it and he immediately knew what happened. He felt awful. I mean, he really felt AWFUL!!! The rest of that day and all evening, he worked and worked to restore my blog. I felt so bad for him because he felt so bad.
Long story short and $80.00 later to GoDaddy, he has the blog back in working order and we learned a lesson: Always check first before blindly deleting.
Seeing as everything is working again, I’ll fill you in on what I was going to tell you about a week ago.
Let’s see…the better part of a month ago, I met with this man.
Super nice guy! We chatted for well over an hour. See, he was interviewing me for a story for a little local paper that our 4 County Power Association puts out. We talked. We had some laughs. He took LOTS of pics. *model material I am not but he took lots of pics anyway*
A few days later we met one more time for just a few more pics and he called it done and he wrote up the story.
Last week, I went to my mailbox and on page 10b and 10c, there was the story! It was the “centerfold” story! LOL!!! I was a centerfold girl! Who would have thought that would ever happen!?!
This is the link to read the story on page 10b and 10c: http://www.todayinmississippi.com/archives/issue
He had heard about how I had dropped a few pounds (170lbs) over a 3.5 year period of time. How I had received a new lease on life through eating smart and making myself become more active.
6 years ago this coming Labor Day I will be celebrating my Runniversary! 6 years since I took my very first steps in becoming a runner!
He wrote up the story about the running and about how Aiden and I became running buddies (#IRun4Aiden).
It’s hard to look back to MFH’s and my move to Mississippi 8 years ago. To realize just how unhealthy I was and how this move saved my life~literally!
I think back to the Colorado days. I remember trying to snag a family member to put my shoes on my feet and tie them for me because I was too big to be able to bend over and do it myself.
I remember the day when I looked down in the shower and could see my feet again!
I remember after losing 70 pounds and feeling absolutely svelte because I was out of the 200 pounds and in onederland!
I remember trying on size 24 jeans and finding them too big!
I remember 3.5 years later trying on size 00 jeans and finding they fit perfect!
Who was this new person!?!
I DO know she’s determined. Tenacious. I know she’s not taking life for granted. I know she’s not afraid of a challenge and is facing life head on.
This new person laughs more. She loves more. She appreciates what she has. She’s happy!!!
….and she’s very blessed to run for Aiden
