Sometimes you don't want to care. Sometimes you don't want to feel. Sometimes you don't want to deal with problems. But you have to. I guess this is called being an adult.
I don't want to care that I have no meaningful relationships in my life. I don't want to care that everytime that I try to make a meaningful, lasting relationship, it falls apart or fades away a few months later.
I don't want to feel the hurt of being alone and having people that do not care. Oh, people say they care.. when I scream give me attention. But, on an everyday series, they don't. Or at least they don't show it. What is the point of caring if you don't show it?
I don't want to have problems. I don't want to have depression where if I don't constantly have solid friendships, my stress levels go up which increases my depression sessions. I don't want to have apraxia which gives me all kind of issues.. still. Like the last few days, I have felt so uncoordinated. In self defense, I felt my partner, someone else I usually don't have, blamed me for us messing up.
So, many things have sucked in the last few days.. so today.. I don't care about calories. I don't care about exercise. I don't want to care about it anymore. So, for one day I won't. I will just care about me and what I want.

This morning I got up excited to go on the nature trail. At one point of the trail, you can turn around which makes it 3 miles or you could take a left and it supposedly looped around. I was excited to see how it looped back.
This morning, I took a walk and got lost. Obviously, I found my way out if I am writing this. Here are some of my highlights in no specific order.
- Saw bear tracks
- Hiked on the Shooting Archery Range
- Talked to a city worker for direction in the middle of the woods
- Saw a police officer past me
- Decided I really should have mace or pepper spray when I walk/run
- Smelled burning tires (Eww!)
- Found out where the trails loops around
- Found a 5 mile nature trail for when I start training for 10Ks
- Listened to the trees whispering and the bullfrogs croaking
- Missed classes (I really was going to go.)
- Ran Day 1 of Week 6 of the C25K but quit in the middle of a steep hill.
- Did not once experience another walker or runner until the end
- Found my car again
- Did this all in two hours
After all this, I was still in a good mood until I asked my friend, you know the same one that is distancing himself from me, to lunch. While talking on the phone, I causally mentioned I got lost. And, nothing. No reaction! Wth! I was lost for TWO hours and he cannot even comment on it. Now, I don't know if I even want to have lunch with him.
Anyhow, this was how MY day started... hope your week started off awesome today. Zumba tonight!

For the last month or so, I haven't been staying up this late.. but I can't sleep. I have alot on my mind. To potentially help me sleep, I thought I'd like blog.. so.. here goes nothing.
Basically, my problem can be condensed down in one thought: I have lost nearly 75 lbs but I still feel insecure and fat.
When I look in the mirror, I see me. I feel like I haven't changed. My shape is the same. I am just smaller.
What has changed are guys paying attention to me. I mean attractive, cute guys that I couldn't even fathom before. Now I think I find them checking me out. And, honestly, it scares me. I don't know how to be confident and flirt. I freeze up.
For most of my life, I have been the ugly one. Not to me.. but to them. I was the girl with speech issues or a little on the chubby side in school. It was not cool to like me. Now I am a nice size 12 and I have all kinds of guys on my hands.
I am sure they are all very nice guys.. but they are not for me. How do I know? I honestly don't think they can understand my insecurities. Can they understand why I don't feel confident? Can they be patient with me when I mess it up when they try to kiss me? You know the awkward silence at the end of the date? I tend to mess that up.. every time!
More importantly, can I trust them? Most of the time in High School, I was ridiculed by the most popular boy. Now, I don't trust popular athletes. More and more, I am finding some are nice but dating wise I want nothing to do with that heart break.
If that wasn't enough, my ex-boyfriend, who I was close friends with, is like putting a move on me. Or it sure feels like it. To me, putting your hand on MY knee is more than friends. Either way, I feel its one big game.. something I don't know if I want anything to do with.
There is a guy that has taught me to laugh again. Seriously, I didn't realize I was so serious and didn't have laughter in my life until about a month ago. According to SHERYLDS, laughter burns calories so just for that reason I will keep him in my life.

It is that time again. The end of the month where some post their goals for the next month. Sometimes I do this. Sometimes I don't. I thought I would try it for October. I know I have done it in the past and not followed through. This month I am going to try really hard to stick with the goal. Yup, I have ONE new goal.. ST 3x a week consistently for the month of October.
When I first started losing weight, I would lift 3x a week. But, I hated it! Seriously, I find it SO boring. With that said, in the first couple months of my journey, I experienced more weight loss in a single month and feeling, overall, stronger.
I will gain weight.. muscle weight, not fat weight! The problem is that I weigh myself twice a week. I know if I see a gain on the it will upset me.. even though I know it's a muscle gain. I know I will. I like the idea of weighing in just twice a month... but also, I know I will let myself weigh in more than that.
I think I am going to try to run and do ST on MWF. Weigh in on Sundays. In fact, I am going to try to start this week - the last week of September. The sooner I do it, the sooner it will become a habit and the sooner I will become !

Today, I completed a 5K.
Before I started the race, I had two goals.
1. Run it fully without walking
2. Complete it under 42 minutes
Well, I walked about 3-4 times. I figured I walked half a mile and ran the rest. I really wanted this to be the first 5K I run as it was the first 5K I walked. I am okay with having walked some of it. There is another 5K to try to run completely. Besides, I haven't finished the C25K program yet!
Maybe, I am not that upset about walking because I did my best 5K time yet! 37:38! My running buddy, Jared, and I figure without the walking, I would have finished around 30 minutes and I know that would be NO small feat! If you do the calculations, that is like 10 minutes/mile.
Here is a photo of my running buddy, Jared, and I after the race.
Anyhow, I did good today. What a great start to a Saturday! Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!
