Tonight I'm going to post when I'm in an upbeat mood! The last few posts have been when I was tired or overwhelmed. Certainly don't want to be a downer for any of you that are kind enough to stop by.
Well, I started out as Debbie Downer this evening. Full day at work and full evening working at home....you all know the drill! I have been telling myself over & over that I need to get back to eating healthier and back to running. I felt my best when I was doing those things.....but have just lacked the motivation or discipline.
I'm not sure what hit me ...maybe the Holy Spirit? :)....but at 9:15 I put on my running shoes and headed out the door. I only ran 1 mile but I did it! The cold air was taking it's toll on my breathing, but I must admit I feel better.
I am one of the most nonathletic people in the world, so the fact that I began running a year and a half ago is really a miracle. I have been very sporadic with it the last 6 months but I'm planning on doing a 5K next month, and a 10 mile race in August. Better get these buns moving!!
My underlying reason for posting this is if I announce it to all of you maybe, just maybe, it will make me more accountable. Discipline in my physical self-care is sorely lacking.
Although the potato chips would have tasted better, I think I chose the right escape tonight....and for that, I'm grateful!
