I'm a little nervous, but feel I am ready to keep going with this program. It has been wet and dreary all week. The rain has finally stopped. When the weather gets gloomy like it's been all week, the grief that I have inside seems to come out more. Tonight, I just need to get out there and move, I need to get out the anxiety and other emotions that are percolating inside me. I am starting to recognize when my body needs some kind of emotional release and am thankful to have finally found a program that I can stick with. The couch to 5 k training is only 3 days a week, some days I have an extra rest day in there, but others not. It feels so good to be comfortable moving in this body and I always feel like a huge emotional weight has been lifted after my runs, even if it's only temporary sensation.
I've been on target with tracking my food too. No surprise that since I've returned to tracking, my weight is starting to move downward again. I guess I won't question myself as whether this is a necessary thing or not anymore. The proof is in the scale and what it's done with tracking when I started Spark People, to when I stopped, to now that I am back on track.
Off To Run, Wishing everyone a happy and hopefully dry weekend!
