Happy! Day 39 and 40
Day 39 - I signed up tentatively to do the Everglow 5K in October. I am really excited to be doing it and hope I will be able to run most of it by then. I also will be doing it with another woman I know. Our children kind of grew up together and she is a more experienced runner so I am sure it will be great. Its like a fun raver run party which is completely up my ally. I am hoping to be doning a nice tutu and glow in the dark fun. I love how getting silly like that feels. It's like taking a big gulp of happy.
Now I did say tentatively because money is tight right now so it depends on me getting a JOB before then. I did pre-register which was supposed to get me a 50% off coupon and a possible race for free prize. Yay!
Day 40 - I'm happy that I am still pushing through. I know I keep saying that. I just am so nervous that I am going to do what I normally do and give up before I get to the finish line. I don't want to be a quitter anymore. I don't want to be all talk and no do. I want to be full of integrity and a go getter. I want to feel I am someone of good character.
I am also happy because I am figuring this new lifestyle I am in a few more steps forward at a time. I know I have to change my life forever. I can't keep doing what I was because it wasn't working for me. I also know it isn't going to be done overnight. In the past, I got discouraged and quit because it didn't happen like I thought it would or it took longer then I thought. Not this time. I know this has to be an everyday, forever kind of different lifestyle thing. I know that I wasn't happy before and some of that I did to myself. I don't want that hanging over me anymore.
I am working on getting me on a carb cycling food regimen. I think it might be the best way for me to go. It allows for enough flexibility I won't feel overwhelmed but enough structure I can live healthier and happier. I'm not sure how it will work for me but I do know that it's balanced and do able.
