Feeling a little disappointed today. I have been working really hard training for this 5K coming up and I had to go and injure myself, so I'm disappointed that I may not be able to run the one that I have wanted to. At the same time though I'm not going to give up. This is something I have wanted for a long time and I won't let go of my dream of completing it.

    Oh no that is a shame! But there will be more in the future when you're fit and ready for it - onwards and upwards!

    Walk if you can, otherwise consider it training for the next 5k. I understand how disappointed you are! emoticon

    Could you compromise and walk emoticon the same emoticon instead of running? If the race will allow it, will your injury?

Why I do what I do.

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Most of my life was filled with activity as a fat person. It's hard to do the things you enjoy when you are overweight. I hated myself for it. I knew it was my fault, but changing seemed to be too much of a mountain to climb.
I finally decided that enough was enough, I was tired of going through the same old cycle. Lose some weight, gain it back and more. I needed to make a change, it was difficult to climb stairs without getting winded!
So I started with a little walking and then running. I found out that I really enjoyed running, it relieves my stress in ways that I never thought possible. That is not to say that the road hasn't been tough, because it certainly has! There are people who don't understand why I do what I do and think that it's crazy. I used to care about what people thought, but now it's much easier to just ignore it and move on.
Why do I do what I do? Because I have to, for me. I have kept my weight off for a year so far and that is the longest I ever have. I am not totally there yet, but I know that I am going to make it. Praise God, for His strength is made perfect in my weakness.

    That is awesome. If you can do it for a year you can do it for the rest of your life. emoticon

Oh what a beautiful morning, Oh what a beautiful day..... and I can't remember the rest of the song, but it sure is beautiful out today. We have had a lot of rain lately and it is just nice to see some sunshine for a change. All of the dreary weather can certainly leave someone with a dreary spirit, but take courage there is always time for joy!

Went for it!

Saturday, June 01, 2013

Yesterday I was so ready for my 5k. Was getting all geared up for it and when the time came, I thought I was going to fall flat. I just kept going and kept telling myself that if I run for just one more minute, that I could do it.
Needless to say, I was able to do it. It took me more time than what I wanted, but the fact of the matter is that I made it. This was my first time ever and the feeling of that accomplishment is indescribable.
Thanks to everyone who supported me and most importantly to the God who helped me do it. Phil 4:13 has become the verse to help me overcome so much. emoticon

    Embrace that feeling! Never forget it...and schedule your next 5K! You will find the benefits of training, eating good fuel, and embracing a healthy lifestyle will just give you more great opportunities with a lot more race finishes! Outstanding effort!

My Heart is Ready!!!

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Today is a beautiful day, the sun is shining, it's going to be hot, but that's ok. I am looking forward to today, not because there is anything special going on, but because my heart is ready to go for it!!!
I am ready to take on the exercise and eat healthy. The more I do to improve my health, the less inclined I am to make bad choices. Unfortunately I still make bad choices, but they are getting farther and farther apart.
I am so thankful I am not where I was and am looking forward to where I want to be.
I am so excited over the changes that I have made and am going to continue to make. I have to do this!!!
