GO FEARLESS FUCHSIAS! Let's meet our goals in the Sizzlin' Summer Slimdown!

You can't change the past...but you can certainly create a new future!

I want so much out of life. A love for life, time with my family, time for myself, a rewarding career (a girls gotta work!), a nice home and excitement! I have some of these but I'm missing the love of life and excitement and it's because of my weight. I need to make a change. I know how to lose weight, most of us do, but it's making the decision to make a complete lifestyle change versus just trying to lose ...

I want so much out of life. A love for life, time with my family, time for myself, a rewarding career (a girls gotta work!), a nice home and excitement! I have some of these but I'm missing the love of life and excitement and it's because of my weight. I need to make a change. I know how to lose weight, most of us do, but it's making the decision to make a complete lifestyle change versus just trying to lose weight that will make the difference this time around!

To help me make a lifestyle change, I have signed up for a 5K in May. My goal is to run half of it and walk when necessary and then to sign up for another one in the fall and run the entire distance. I know I can do it but it will take training and committment on my part.
UPDATE: I ran my first 5K! I enjoyed it and I was so happy that morning. My family (DH, DD and DS) was at the finish line to watch me reach the goal I set for myself in January - I can't think of a better way to instill the power of setting goals for yourself and attaining them then to have them there with me!

Thanks for stopping by my SparkPage!!! I wish you well in the goals you have set for yourself.

5K Races:
1st race - 5/22/10 - Time - 40:43 - WooHoo - I did it!!!
