I am trying to decide something. The decision isn’t that hard to make. I want to do it. What’s hard is the commitment. What’s REALLY hard is following through.
So, the week before last I started thinking about running. I’ve been back to working out regularly for a few months now and it feels great but I am not losing any weight. Why? Because I like
sweets food too much.
So, my committement is two-fold. I need to step-up the exercise and work on my diet.
After I mentioned something about running in one of my posts, my pal Kami emailed me and told me that she NEVER would have thought she would become a runner and guess what, she did. And Kathryn recently posted about the same topic here. I began to wonder if maybe there were signs around me that I could do this too. I’ve only done some running three times so far but each time it feels better and a little easier.
So this is where you all come in. I need more encouragement to know that I can do this. I know it will take some time and I feel ready to give that time. My first goal would be a 3K. Right now… that seems close to impossible.
Tell me, do you run? Have you in the past? If you don’t would you consider ever trying?
And, if you don’t have any words specifically on running just leave me a little comment of encouragement. Cause I can tell you right now, I’m gonna need it! : )
P.S. I KNOW this is probably bad to link to at the end of post about exercise and change of eating habits but I can’t resist. Go here for this great “little” chocolate cake recipe. And sub egg whites for the egg and apple sauce for the oil and it becomes a little healthier! ; ) Besides, we all deserve a little treat once and a while…
