40th birthday present to me... :)
Sunday, May 12, 2013
Well, it's been a while, as usual. LOL
So, since I had finally chosen to do something about my weight issues, I have decided to do something that I NEVER thought I would do. I have decided to start training for a 5K. Now, I am no runner, that's for sure. I kinda started doing interval training in my living room for about 3 weeks, before deciding that I would do this. We have the Color Vibe 5K coming up ON MY BIRTHDAY (Oct. 5th) and even though I know it's not a timed race, I will be timing myself. I am truly excited about this. I am trying like crazy to get my hubby to do this with me. I even tried reverse psychology, by telling him "he couldn't do it". Not sure if it worked. We'll see. LOL
This will be the ultimate present to me and may even lead to me wanting to do more. I have been having fun with the interval training and I am able to make it through the 30 mins without dying at the end. :) I need to know that I can do this. This is not a mid-life crisis, this is a chance to prove to myself that I am moving in an ever positive direction with my fitness. I still have quite a bit to lose, but I am getting so many compliments about what I have done so far, and that is so humbling and motivating. I know that I can kick this into high gear and hopefully get to my goal by the time that I run this race.
Thank you for always being a part of this journey with me... I can't do this without all of you being such an inspiration to me and what I am trying to accomplish! Spark Strong! :)
