I just finished reading SP Coach Nicole write about her 1/2 marathon experience. Just the motivation that I need.
I haven't posted a blog in a long time. I gained a ton of weight and did not want to have a blog evolve into my own pity party. So....I made some decisions.
I joined the discount gym in my area. It is very close to work. I plan out my lunch, outfit for work, and also the work out outfit. I have it down to the socks planned so that there is no excuse to NOT go to the gym before work. My alarm clock took a nose dive off it's resting spot- when right out and got another one- NO excuse. I am now cooking meals ahead of time and freezing them. I work 3, 12 hour shifts a week. I have no excuse NOT to plan ahead. I made a list on the door that I walk out of each morning reminding me of the essentials (like Bring a TOWEL! and grab that Ipod, don't forget lunch, etc)
This has made a huge difference in how I'm living. Coach Nicole's blog reminds me that these efforts are what it's about. I am out of my comfort zone. I feel like I can blog about what is going on since I am actually trying to get it back together. I won't give up because I'm tired or it would be the easy thing to do.
And....I just started week 1 of the podrunner couch to 5 k program. This will be the third time that I've done this program. I actually ran a 5k after completing that program last time.
Hopping back on track,

    Good for you, Janice! I was there when Coach Nicole ran her 1/2. Everyone there was just great. I did not do my walk because I hurt my knee (of course the fact that I, too, have gained weight did not help). Coach Nicole and Coach Nancy were so inspiring, as well as the other Sparkers that were there. I have gotten my Spark back - let's do this together!
