What to do, what to do.
A friend borrowed my car today and said "How about we go to Red Lobster for dinner and I buy since you let me use your car?"
"No, I can't I have to to run after work. I'm sorry, it is tempting but I have to stick to my workout plans." "Thank you, maybe another time, when it's raining." Ha, ha!
He knows that I have made a commitment to my health and he understood. We'll pick a rainy day maybe next week then. (I love it!)
I really do try to run all my errands or make my social visits when the weather is not good. Does that make me a bad person? I really don't know, I just see as trying to maximize my time. You know the old saying "Make hay while the sun is shining."
I am so proud of myself!

Finally feel good enough to go and walk/run! Not up to full speed and a complete run but I did run today! 3 miles! I would say 60% walking and 40% running. Woohoo!
My lungs were putting up a little protest but my body was all for it! So was my mind. I am a runner and I have got to run! Wow....how did this happen?
My son and I were talking about my race coming up on Saturday and how I would do since I have been sick. He said "Is it a 5K?" and I replied "Yeah it's just a 5K, I could do that in my sleep". Ha ha! I really have come along way.
You go girl!

A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn't will find an excuse.
- Stephen Dolley Jr
This is a great quote for me. I try very hard not to make excuses and do what needs to get done. Instead of listening to the reasons why I can't, I tell myself HOW I CAN!
"No excuses, only results"
I know when I am BSing myself. I've got the committee in my head telling me so.
I cannot run today, but I can do some resistance band exercises and light stretching.
Again, it starts with my choices.
