I have come to the realization that I need to start where I am at.
1. I really want to run the Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon, but I have not done the training for that to happen. This means I will be walking it. I walked three days last week and I'll start make the walks longer today. I know I'm cramming for it, but I spent the money and I will finish it somehow.
2. I want to be fit now! That is not reality. Reality is I am a 40 year old woman who has been more or less inactive for over a year. I am going to have to start over and begin where I am, not where I want to be. That means walking right now, instead of running until after the half marathon.
3. I need to change my goals. I do not have the body of my 20's and early 30's and I never will have it again. However, I can mold the body I do have now. I want to keep my muscle and let it be seen. I want to be strong as I age, that means taking care of myself now. That means starting where I'm at and working with what I have.
I'm not working right now, as I am waiting for the school year start so I can begin subbing. I am going to take this time and put myself back together. I'm going to work on the habits that I want to carry with me through the next ten, twenty, or thirty years.
I'm starting where I'm at now and I'm going to see where this road leads.
