Hello...I'm not new again to this forum, but to SparkPeople. I've been "away" for quite some time, but logged back in today and have to redo some forums that I'm in because I recently turned 40 and became an empty nester.
Today, I started Week 3 of that Couch to 5k thing. I have no idea what's in store for me, so don't tell me! Otherwise, I will sabotage myself... :( I found a podcast and am doing it week by week.
I have an old outfit that has good memories associated with it in front of the treadmill so when I'm about to give up, I can look at that and keep on going...plus, I chant "I did natural childbirth 3 times, I can do this..."
Anyway. I have lived my life surrounding my kids' and husband's life...and now am at loose ends as to what to do with myself.
Recently, we had family pictures for my side of the family done...I'm tired of being the chunky one in the pictures. Thus, the Couch to 5k beginning.
I love to blog...I love to read...I play the piano...I avoid exercise like the plague...I have church and civic responsibilities...
And I now have to figure out what I want to be when I "grow up".
Mostly, all I know is I want to fit into that outfit again. And enjoy clothes shopping. OH! And I have a daughter getting married in a year...I do NOT want a mother-of-the-bride dress in this size.
So...here's to the 40's...may they be as grand as I've heard they can be!
