So yesterday was a close call for me. It is amazing how stress and changing things can make the emotional eater in me emerge like a angry beast that is hard to control.
Hard, but not impossible.
Enter my amazing sparkles that I cherish and love so much. You guys really did make all the difference yesterday in my life. I called for help and I received it, in abundance. I was shocked so see how many of you that I have made a difference in your own lives, and how I....me...motivate you! The more I read your kind words of encouragement the more I fought that inner beast and I am very grateful I did and I prevailed.
So my plan this week was to not run and do something else to try to break out of my plateau that I have been in and you know what I have realized is it wasn't worth the change. I am a runner....I love to run...It makes my happy and it make me keep going. Whats happened when I change this this week. I did one workout DVD and hated it the whole time, skipped it the other nights and just felt like giving up. Yep, just throw it all away that quick..
This is ridiculous, I thought to myself. If you like to run that much and you are miserable then get out there and just run, and that's what I did. I ran my heart out the fastest I could 5km in 28min and smiling and feeling stronger the whole time. Energized and re-booted to keep going and get there because it is worth it and I can do it.
So here I am on plan, re-motivated and ready to go. If I never do anything else ever again it won't matter as long as I keep running :o) Make sure you do what you love and it will love you back, sparkles!
