You all have awesome goals! Thanks to those who have shared so far!
Goal 1: Train and run/walk a 5K before year's end. Cut 5 minutes off last year's time (which hopefully won't be hard since I didn't train at all for that day--I just showed up. I'm a smart one).
Obstacles: No running partner. Sometimes I can drag my husband along to walk as I run. Embarrassed to run in public.
Positive note: I'm hoping being active in this group and checking in and encouragement will help me get motivated. In anticipation of having to post on here, I did 2min walk, 1 min run intervals x10 tonight at a local track. That's the most movement I've done in a long time.
Goal 2: Eat healthier.
Obstacles: I come from a big family, so to me, my size was always justified. Recently all my siblings have been dropping major pounds. Eeek! When trying to grocery shop on a budget, I find it's easier to buy cheap, unhealthy items.
My fitness goal is that I am currently in Marathon training for the Marine Corps Marathon.
I really don't have any obstacles at the moment to my running......the obstacle I have is that I like to use spinning as a crosstraining and now that school is out my schedule has been completely interrupted. We are going on vacation over the next week and then I will revisit that plan when I get home.

My fitness goal is to run a minimum of 10 miles per week. My obstacle is getting that done. My training calls for much more miles than that but I am in my busy season with work and there just don't seem to be enough hours in the day for my job and my family.
I try to beat this obstacle by scheduling "me" time on my calendar and not beating myself up when I just can't get it all done.
