Let's Start at the Very Beginning

I decided that this summer is the time for me to get back on track with my weight loss and fitness. Last summer, I had a lot of personal stress on myself, and luckily, this summer, it's all gone. Instead, this is going to be the summer of me. My job is to be my most fabulous self. That's what everyone's goal should be, since everything else just falls into place from there.

Anyway, like one of my favorite songs from the Sound of Music, I decided to start from the very beginning, because it's a very good place to start! I figured I would get myself out on the rail trail and run a mile. After I ran the mile, I decided to tack another half mile onto it, and I have to admit that at the end of the 1.5 miles, I was tired. It's been a while since I've run that far. But I did it... 1.5 miles! I rock! I came home and did some weight work, and I feel pretty darn good.

What have YOU done today to make you feel proud?

That's an excellent start.

Have you ever gone back to read the posts where you first began to run? I think you will be amazed that you have changed so much.

Today I did the first workout in the Couch-to-5K program. I was pretty excited with myself.

Good luck getting refocused. I know you can do it.

You DID rock, until you mentioned that song which is now stuck on my brain. :)

here's to a great summer of YOU!

Love it! And it is SO true! SO so so so true!

Good for you for getting out and running 1.5 miles.

Today I am not eating after 8 PM and skipping my Biggest Loser margarita. I have been drinking one while I watch, pretty ironic.

Sounds like you are in a great place!

I'll be right there with you soon enough. ;) I need to be putting forth some more effort if I actually want to get results. Go you!
