Hello fellow Sparkers, so as you can tell I am not really good at this blogging thing (this is my second in 7 months) but I need help so I am coming back and begging for it.
I signed up for my second 1/2 marathon, which will be in March...to date I have only done a 2 mile treadmill run. I keep telling myself to wake up in the morning, like at 5am and go for a run, but I have yet to do it. When I get off work it is off to pick up my son from school, rush home to cook dinner, and before you know it its 8pm, terribly dark because of daylight savings, and cold. Negative Nelly, I know...that is what I am trying to break.
I was doing really well on my Atkins diet for a solid 6 months, lost quite a bit of weight which is thrilling, but I have fallen back to my old ways, if not worse. This morning for example, I have a whole sleeve (20 cookies) of Girl Scout Trefoils! I am disgusted with myself :(
I want to tell myself, "Self, wake up...stop beating yourself up and just start with what you know is right!" Its not the end of the world, especially because I can see that I am not eating how I should, I know, easier said than done.
I want to thank anyone and everyone who is taking the time to read this, if you have any suggestions please let me know...I am open to everything.
I would really like to find a running group, work out partner(s), and all around positive people to surround myself by.
I am making the commitment now, not next week, or next month, but right NOW. Maybe writing this to the public and to myself I will stay with it, but I will go back to my diet, and work out to my maximum potential, push myself and strive for my goal.
