Finding Myself

Monday, October 22, 2012

This journey has been about finding myself!!

I have learned to make healthier food choices and take care of me first then others. I have found that when I fall of the wagon

and eat that fast non healthy food all it takes is one great home made meal for me to ask what are we thinking the taste alone is so much better.

I have never been a fan of working out or jogging/running but this year I did my first 5K and jogged almost the entire thing and LOVED it!! I also like the feel of pain in the muscles the next day. I push on it all the time and go yea I did that!! Strange right? :)

I have become a totally different person on this journey and am just so much happier with the new me. My attitude and personality has totally changed. I have gotten rid of not only the rubbish food but the rubbish people in my life and could not be happier.

I never thought I would feel the need to workout and miss it when I don't but i have proved myself wrong. This past week I have not had as much time because school is so crazy right now and I just can not wait to get back on track.

    Congratulations on the 5k! That is great! I have yet to participate in things like that. I would love to do one with biking.
    And congratulations on your "spring cleaning" of rubbish!
    I had bad food yesterday out of convenience, and oh my gosh it wasn't that great. I guess when you you eat it often you think it's good. What are people thinking, right?

    Great reflection....and so positive! And its amazing when you start making more healthy choices in your life you realise part of it is not only what you do...but the people you surround yourself with. Congratulations on having the strength to make those changes!

    I'm proud of you!!! I am training with my Mom for her 5K. Although, I'm not doing it with her, i will be there to support her and I think it pushes her to do good because I'm trying so hard to help her.

    Way to go!

    I completely understand how you feel! Now it's second nature for me to make healthier choices for me and my family. I aspire to run a 5K! Keep up the good work!

    This has been a wonderful journey for me as well. I am training for my first 5k. I have done it on a treadmill but I can't wait to be able to do it on a track. Getting myself healthy is my main goal right now. I have to take care of me, no one else can do it for me!!!!! Glad to have you one our team!!!!
