Thank goodness. I got out of my depressing rut of exhaustion and ran last night! It felt horrible at first but by the end of the 5 miles I was feeling more like my old self. It's comforting at least to know that I can pump out 5 miles without much effort even without really training. With my exercise added in I burned more than I took in which is a great start! I even turned down the free pizza after our run and went home to eat my own food. Small wins. This morning I wasn't able to wake up and do the workout I had planned on but I still feel much better than the past few days and I am working out after work any way. I should probably start off slow to begin since I usually push to hard from the start. Feeling positive which is great and really wanting to set some goals for trail running since that's what really gets me excited about exercise. It will be tough figuring it out in the winter since this will be my first full winter in the snow, but I think it will be a good challenging learning experience. I just have to keep this positive energy going and get myself out there even if part of me wants to curl up on the couch in a blanket. I never regret getting outside and exercising. Here we go on Day 2!
