emptying my tank" (that's in reference to this blog post from Olivia Ward) does NOT define me- in fact, it should provide me the motivation to do better the next time. So, since I have started this journey I have done 3 things- I have started back up to my couchto5k program, I have gone back to Zumba, and I have gone to spin class (and have really enjoyed it). My goal is to continue with it and when I think that "I can't do this" to remember the response- BUT, what if you can!?
Saturday, June 9, 2012
I am picking this back up again. I have known for a while that something needed to change but have put it off (like always) but then I saw a picture from a hike I took last Saturday. It forced reality on me. This was the day before my 37th birthday, June 2, 2012. And it WILL be the last day I look like this. I am posting the picture because I need to go on record as changing my ways. It's time to do what needs to be done.
So, as you can see- these pictures have shown me just how bad I let it get. You know how you look in the mirror and you think oh, that's not so bad but then I see a picture of myself and know. So, I am embarking on a new journey. One that I know will bring me tears of pain and joy, and yet one that I know that I need to travel upon. I don't know where it will take me or what exactly I will do. I do know one place it's taking me- in October- to Nashville I'm participating in The Color Run
I am really excited about it and think it's a good first step. Who knows where this will take me?
Time to go!
