I am headed to NYC in a couple of days for training at Columbia Teachers College. I am so excited to energize myself professionally. I will also be running a 10K on the 4th of July. If you had told me in December that when I got a chance to go to NYC, that I would even want to do a 10K while I was there, I would have laughed my butt off in your face. I never in a million years thought that I would become a runner. I am not sure that I am a "runner" but I am getting there! I am excited to run by myself without anyone pushing me. I am curious about my "inner" drive.  Will I push myself, or will I give up on myself? I have done a 10K without walking, but will I accomplish this alone and in a different state?? If I walk, does that mean I fail? I don't think so! I have a time that I want to beat! That is all I care about... walk, run or sprint... I need to beat me!!!

Just wanted to share my thoughts for the day!

Oh and someday, I want to put on my clothes and NOT have a muffin top! That's a goal of mine... I know I could buy bigger pants, but I want it for real!

Have a great Friday! :)


Here we go!!!

So here it is! My first blog!

I guess this blog will be about being honest with myself! For the last couple of months, I have been really good about my workouts. I have had a few off days, but for the most part, I have been good. The eating is where I have not been honest. I wrote a little confession the other day about a "food accident" with a cheeseburger... I couldn't even enjoy it because I started beating myself up on the second bite. But that was good because I realized that I was doing this to myself!!
In the past, this where I would have said that this whole eating thing is too hard, and I probably would have continued eating away my pain. So I didn't, and I dusted myself off and starting writing down what I ate. Yesterday I realized that I am snacking way too much. It really makes a difference writing the food down. I was able to see that when I thought I was hungry, I really just needed to drink some water.

Today has been much better, and I feel better too!

There is my first blog :) I don't know if any of you will read it or not, but hey it is good for me so that is all that matters!

I am hoping to start reviewing different fitness things. I will start looking at apps and things of that nature now. This should be fun!
