outside is the best place for me

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Well, here I am a couple months in with lots of setbacks and yet, not discouraged. While I am still down from the weight I started at. I have gained a little back. But not around my waist or thighs. Nope. I like to call it muscle. It's fascinating to me to watch this new found love form a beautiful spot on my legs. I never thought I would appreciate it as much as I do. The scale doesn't bother me, because I can see the results in my mid section and the fit look on my legs.
Either way, I know that I work hard every day and that the results aren't going to be there overnight, but eventually they will be.

Running 3miles a day is now a part of my routine. I had a therapy appointment earlier today and it interfered with my running schedule. My therapist is the one that sent me on my quest for exercise in the first place. She is the reason I even found SP, because according to her- It would help my anxiety and panic attacks. Turns out, she's mostly right. But when I don't get the run in like I want- I start to crave it. I am so glad that this is something for me that is a requirement just like a cup of coffee in the morning for most. I still found time to run today, not as long or as far as I wanted- But better than nothing.

I pushed myself the other day, to go just a little farther, then a little farther. I felt better after going a little longer on that run, than I thought I would. I am now that person that talks about how I run and how much I NEED it and want it and LOVE it to everyone I know. My husband is supportive, and yet probably tired of hearing me talk so much about it all at the same time. It is my new passion and now. I only have one other REAL passion other than family and that is photography. I couldn't resist sharing my pics from today where the sun moved in behind some clouds. So spiritual and beautiful all at the same time.
I am by no means Amazing with photography (yet), but I have heard that your first 10,000 photographs are your worst, so I have about 2,000 to go. :)

And if you are still with me and have somehow read this entire post of nothingness and rambling, I have just one question for you.
I need a good running shoe. Suggestions???

    Love the pictures! You are doing great. It always feels wonderful when you find something that keeps you going. I am the same way with doing my workout first thing in the morning. If I have to skip it, I am completely off for the rest of the day. Keep it up! As for running shoes, I don't know, I'm not a runner.
