A few years ago I started to get into shape... I did a few 5K's and was running fairly regularly. I loved the way I felt... but hated running. Sorry runners... I still think you're crazy. Maybe I'll change my mind someday, but for now, I just don't dig it.
So frankly... I stopped. I started by just not exercising... then slowly my very bad habits all came back. And so now... I'm trying again.
I went to the gym twice this week. I biked, I treadmilled, I even lifted a few weights. And I ate salad. Wow, haven't had salad in a LONG time, lol. But it was pretty yummy. :)
For years I have gone back and forth about weight... in my head. Part of me says that if people are decent, they will see past my weight and see the real, awesome me. And I think I hid behind that for a long time. And it's true... those are the types of people we want around us right? But really... that's an excuse... even if it was not a consious one. The other part of me thought about how nice it would be to shop at any store I'd like to shop at. :) Or be the Hot Mom, lol. But really, at this point, I'm doing it for my health. I'm happier when I work out. I am more productive, and I feel better... mentally and physically. So from time to time you might hear me talk about it... and update on my weight loss. Maybe a picture or two. :) Anyone want to join me? :)
