I CAN RUN??!!
Wednesday, August 31, 2011
After I gained 150 pounds there were many things that people said ( And i allowed myself to believe) that i couldnt do. "You cant wear that" "YOu cant do that" " I prolly cant ride that ride" blah blah nonsense.
The number one thing I was always afraid to try again was running. I used to LOVE to run. Id do it for fun. The wind in my hair, felt like there was no ground under my feet: my mom couldnt stop me lol. But then i got weighed down from all the weight and negative thinking and not wanting to be made a fool of for being the "fat girl trying to run". BUt today something amazing happend:
It all occured by accident.
Me and my mother share a car. I wanted to go to the gym and she needed to go somewhere, so i decided to walk to the gym so she could have the car ( the gym is only about a half a mile away). I get to the gym and looked at my cell phone . My mom had txted me "WHERED TO PUT THE KEYSS??" At that moment i put my hand in my pocket and felt the keys in there! OOPS! I SPRINTED home. (Now yall when i say sprinted i mean i hauled complete tail up outta the gym and ran like someone was chasing me back to my house.) lol
Once i hit the door my lungs felt like they were on fire lol and i was breathing sooo heavy and my legs were pulsing. After i calmed down a bit i relized something: I FELT AMAZING!! I immediately went outside with my little brother and did 10 double sets of 5 second sprints!! I followed that with some ab ripper x! When running it felt like nothing else mattered and I was running over every negative thought and word about me. I WAS ALMOST IN TEARS!
Finna incorporate it everyday into my workouts!!
If i can do this, what else can i do???
