Getting Out of the Rut....

Sunday, April 27, 2014

I have been is a terrible rut for about 6 weeks. I got the stomach flu, then got really fatigued.
I went to the doctor & had all kind of tests done; everything was fine. Then the weather, schedule changes, family know the game. I then just got depressed. I had to do something, Part of what helped is that I had verbally made a commitment to myself and my family. I knew in my brain that there was no I just know like Michael Jordan said,
Just do it!!
Everyday is a choice & if we do it instead of how we feel; our body will follow.
So, yesterday was a gorgeous day here in NC, so I got up, took my dog Mylie for our regular walk & started to jog. I made it all the way around my trek...which is about a mile. I had my IPod with e & it was fabulous!!

I am so proud of myself! To some, a mile is probably not much; but for me, a 257 lb.woman who hates jogging, it was phenomenal! So, I got home and immediately posted my success on my Facebook page. I thanked my sisters, brother, sister-in-law, nieces, and nephews for being a great example (they run marathons) & told them that I hope to join them...maybe for just a fourth marathon but nevertheless. I am happy!!! So to me, getting out of the rut is just stepping out of it. Good luck to all & let's keep going.
P.S. I also reminded myself and my family that I have set a goal to celebrate my 60th birthday with a big birthday bash in a LBD (little black dress.) That is 2.5 years away but I want to be 100 lbs. lighter and I will be!!! Let's keep going Spark Friends!

    Some ruts are not fun. My rut is comfortable for me ... I'm learning to maintain my new goal weight.
