Way back in the day, I used to be skinny. Not like, stick small skinny, but in good shape. I was an athlete. I worked out. I ran. I was healthy.
Somewhere along the line I let that slide and am paying the price for it! I dread going to gym but it's a necessity. Anyways, I've decided that I need to take a break from focusing on the baby thing for a while [even though we are still moving forward 110% with everything] and focus on something else.
I've always wanted to run a half marathon. It's on my "life to do list" and I figure that now is as good as any time to start training for one.
So that's what I started doing this week.
I forget how much running sucks, especially when you are way out of shape. But, I've logged a few miles this week, and am actually looking forward to logging some more tonight. My body is sore, but in a good way. I can already feel the difference, and it's giving me some motivation to keep moving forward with it. I'm working on the diet as well, although there were a couple of slip ups this week [I'm sorry ... mexican food is just something I am not able to say no to!]. I'm hoping, though, that I will still see a weight loss on the scale this weekend.
There is a half marathon in the state in September. That gives me plenty of time to train and get ready. If the pregnancy happens, then awesome! It happens! But I need to focus on other things for a while and stop stressing about a pending pregnancy. And my weight is definitely one of them.
Plus, losing these extra pounds and getting in better shape only benefits this whole process, right??
So ... here's to lots of soreness in the coming months!
