And so it begins

Friday, February 01, 2013

I was informed by my work out partner today that it is exactly 10 weeks to the 5k we are supposed to participate in. We both have colds, and are wondering if this is even going to be possible. She called today with wonderful news that her cold has developed into strep throat and an inner ear infection and that I would be on my own for the next few days. IT IS DAYS LIKE THIS I JUST WANT TO QUIT- GIVE UP- IS IT REALLY WORTH IT????
And then I think yes - yes it is worth it. This is something I really want to prove to myself and all the nay sayers out there that I CAN do this.
When I told my mom i was running a 5k she looked at me like I had grown a unicorns horn and said "really?you?" and then rolled her eyes.
When I told my little brother I was running a 5K he asked if I was off my medications or if they needed adjusting.
And my beautiful 21 year old daughters reply-"Mom are you ok? Im not trying to be mean but you are like the most clumsey person I have ever met.
So to all the nay sayers: I am going to do this. Come watch in 10 weeks. I may be the last one to finish, but by golly I am going to finish.
I am headed to the gym now to do some tredmill work today (thanks weather). I will be the clumsy middle aged woman talking to her self because she is off her medication running on the tredmill with klenix in one hand and hand sanatizer in the other. Come on over and say hi. I promise I will be say hi back-----or ask you to call 911, which ever is the correct response at the time!

    Way to go! My family was the same way when I started on my lifestyle change. They complained that there was nothing in the house to eat, like hot pockets, chocolate, and soda. Well, last night we had meatballs (Turkey) and whole wheat noodles and then they had a choice of fresh broccoli, cauliflower,carrots, or celery. They said it was one of the best dinners they have had. I learned to do it for me. I am so proud of you for going after your goals. emoticon
