Making a Change
Monday, July 30, 2012
I'm not terribly good at blogs and diaries and such, but here goes...
I'm 43, 5'1 1/2", a college graduate, one son, and overweight since my twenties. I was hyperthyroid until my son was born, than the ol' metabolism slowed way down. I've been a secretary for most of my adult life, so sitting all day came with the territory. At this time, I'm about 90lbs overweight and miserable about it. But that's going to change...
See, I was engaged, but I recently split. When asked one time how I would describe myself, the best I could come up with was "frumpy librarian". That just isn't me though. But I've let myself be that way for god knows what reason. My boyfriends up til recently have all been overweight, so I let myself be that way, thinking I couldn't do better, but I can and I know it.
I have three goals:
1) I've always wanted to run and participate in a marathon, so I have started the C25K program.
2) I want to do trail running and adventure racing, but it's a high endurance sport. My endurance sucks eggs at the moment. That's going to change.
3) I want to be able to a century on a bike. Again, it's an endurance issue and that's going to change.
I will do these three things. No excuses. What doesn't kill me will only make me stronger!
