I'm trying - and I'm happy with that.

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

I gaines 20lbs when my mom got hospitalized and have done absolutely nothing to get rid of it. At that time (November 2010) I was up to 6 miles training for a half-marathon (would've been my first). I basically quit...everything. This week I have gone to the track twice and run my first solid mile each day. Taken a Zumba class and taught a Yoga class. Made arrangements for a twice a week full-body weight lifting partner and my nutrition is trying to make a comeback. Yeah, I'm proud of me!

    Yes, you should be! Don't worry if you find your steps need to be small ones--that might even be better than trying to take lots of stuff on at once. You've been through a super tough patch, but with time you'll get back to where you were. I have faith in you!
