Can you believe that?
This morning I got up and put my hair in a ponytail. I washed my face. Bobby pinned my bedhead bangs out of my face, put on that Bath & Body Works pepperminty lipgloss stuff, spritzed on some body splash, put on my shades and went outside.
Have you ever gotten to that point where you are tired of feeling sluggish and fat?
I hit that point 3 or 4 weeks ago. I joined an exercise dance class and it is a hoot-I love it.
However, there are a couple days a week my schedule will not permit me to make the dance class. Until today, I have been enjoying my off days. BUT. My friend Amanda motivated me. She started running this past week as well.
As for me, I have never, and I repeat never been a runner. Hate the word, don't want to talk about it and sure as heck didn't want to try it. But the truth is, have you ever noticed how stinkin' skinny runners are? Even if you hate them, you have to admit they look good.
One of my friends took up running a couple years ago and she transformed her entire body. She even checked breast reduction off her list of things to do, because the girls shrunk down to a size that didn't hurt her back anymore.
So, how was my first day on the job? It felt good to be out there doing it. I am using the Couch to 5K plan. Today I started with a 5 minute walk. Then I ran for 60 seconds walked for 90 seconds. I did that set 5 times-so that means I ran 5 minutes total today.
I'm gonna be completely honest about this journey. It felt great to be out there while I was exercising. When I got home I was starving and I've been beat today. Very tired. I did stay up too late last night.
In the meantime-I ran this morning. That is crazy!
