So I finally did it this last week. I finally ran a full mile. I don't remember it ever being this hard. I guess you never realize how how out shape you are until you try to get back into shape. Depressing . . . Yes but yet I did it. And that feels great. Have not lost any weight and that's depressing . . . But I ran a mile and that feels great. That's what I have to hang on to, that great feeling because it's what keeps me going, it makes the depressing things not so depressing. So next time it will be 2 miles. It might take me another month but with each little bit over 1 mile I get, the closer I get to 2 miles and eventually I will get there. And maybe that great feeling will be accompanied by some weight loss and maybe it won't feel as hard but nonetheless I know that when I reach 2 miles it will feel great.

I used to "run". I was never great, never fast but I did it. Then I stopped. Now, 2 years and 20 lbs later I'm starting again. I have had some major changes in my life related to health and career but I can't put it off any longer. It's time to take action and be in charge of my health again.
Sounds great, convincing even huh? I know I need to do this but I still sabatoge myself all the time. I LOVE food, especially sweets, and beer - the darker the better, and I am busy (isn't everyone) so when I get home and finish helping the kids with homework, and making supper, and doing my own homework I just want to go to bed.
Encouragement is needed, advice is wanted and people to vent to (who get it) is appreciated.
2 mile run with my family (kids 10,8 and 6) in June, 5k by myself in July and we'll see about after that. I would like to do a half marathon in my life but no particular race in mind yet.
So here I go . . .Starting over again.
