I am not a fit girl. If I had to run for my life, I’m pretty sure I’d die. That’s what makes the pending, if not already happening, zombie invasion so intriguing. I tried the Couch25K thing well over a year ago and decided then that they only way you’d ever catch me running was if there were zombie chasing me.
I just logged my 7th mile (albeit them very slow and with some breaks to catch my breath) for the week. I am running.
I’m not sure where the zombies are exactly…I’ve decided to keep my head up and focus forward rather than looking back. My weight has always been a issue for me, one that I am constantly focusing on (except when I’m eating cookie dough ice cream straight from the container, or around the holidays) and it’s something that has me down in the dumps frequently. I want to be that 135 lb girl that met her husband 15 years ago.
Reality check: That was FIFTEEN years and 2 kids ago. While it’s not impossible, given our current life situation, schedules and whatnot, it’s probably an unrealistic expectation for me to believe I will see that girl again anytime in the near future. So, rather than focus on a number or a size, I’m going to focus on actual fitness. I want my body to be strong enough to do things I never thought I could do – like run. The rest will come.
This is where I need your help… Will you be a cheering section for me? If I don’t post about where I am with my fitness goals for a while, will you check in with me? I’m all ear if you have tips or tricks and if you have your own personal fitness journey you’d like to share with me, please do! My email and Facebook pages, as well as the comment section here are all at your disposal.
So, for now, keep an eye out for those zombies for me, will ya? I’m rocking tunes and looking looking ahead.
