Excitement and health musings....

OK! Guess what???
I found a program here on SPARK that works your way up to jogging a 5k in 8 weeks...2 months..I (lol) will take longer!!! 3 months? And I think that is perfectly fine to do!

Its called: SparkPeople's 5K Your Way Rookie Running Program (In my case "jogging program") Gulp. Part of me, is like am I really even considering this???! But I know come June (FOR SURE!) I'm gonna have to step it up from walking, because by then I think I'll be able to *walk* 5 k comfortably.

What I COULD do is start doing a mile (and do 3 minutes total of jogging per mile), BEFORE I start the program, just to help me get started. Thats an idea...

I'm just feeling this out. I like to plan, prepare, and then go for it. I do well, with structure/goals etc. But then again, I love doing thigns spontaneously once in awhile too. Just not every day!! It makes me feel too out of control. And I KNOW when I feel out of control, I tend to binge. So I want to avoid that!

Anyways, its a RAINY day--which I don't mind--kinda soothing once in awhile-- I did get 22 minutes on the recumbent bike early Am, before breakfast, so I plan to do that again for another 20 minutes, as it doesn't burn much calories, but its movement, eh?:) This afternoon continue on project, this evening laundry, possibly family coming over. So I'll be one tuckered bunny! :)

(I get tired quite easily...I'm in "recovery" I'll say from something like chronic fatigue....I've been taking a powdered vitamin/minearl mix for the past month and its making a world of a difference! I don't feel so fatigued. Yes, I still get tired...and still need 8-9hrs of sleep. But I don't feel the weakness that I have been feeling for YEARS. So if this keeps up, I'm keeping up with the product!!!)

Its incredible really because for the past 6 years I have been so limited because of my health. This month I've been able to take on a few more things, than I have for a long time....I have had chronic headaches for the past 6 years, which I'm still dealing w/...medication after med....This morning I was worried a migraine was coming on as I was so nauseated w/ the kids. :(

But finding a possible solution for the fatigue just really makes me hopeful, that their is help for some of my issues.

I also deal w/ an anxiety disorder...that is an ongoing issue, sometimes is better than others...

Anyways enough about my "issues"...I am thankful for all the blessings I do have, and the ability to live in a place where I can get help, counsel, medicine the ability to choose to go outside in freedom and take a walk in the beauty of nature and do something to better my health! I love how exercise boosts my mood! What a precious gift! :)

Ok, I've gone on far too long!!! If you're still here...kudos to you! :))))

YOU have a wonderful day, and enjoy each moment! And remember you are worth each healthy choice!!! :)

    Keep up your fight against anxiety -- that's what led me to start SparkPeople -- the combination of areas in our program really works for this.
