Two days in....

The rundown...
I'm trying to start this new year with a new kick. I have been unhappy with myself for a while and decided now is the time. I have had too many days of "I'll start tomorrow."

So that brings me to today... two days into this (I have to start somewhere)...
So far I'm feeling great! My motivation to eat well is still high and I went running last night for the first time in WAY too long. I can definitely tell my stamina is gone, but hopefully before long I will be back up to the 4-ish miles I was doing this summer. My long term running goal, I would say, is to be able to run a 5K in under 30 minutes. No date set or even in sight yet, but it's a long term goal for myself.

My biggest goal is feeling better about the way I look before my friend, Brooke's wedding in October. This past summer a group of friends and I went and spent a day on Lake James. My biggest memory of that day is being extremely self conscious about the way I look. I definitely do not want to relive that experience when we are supposed to be having a great time in Mexico! My mind could easily tell me, "you don't have to start working out now, October is a long ways off." And that's true, but I know myself well enough to know if I do not get into a groove now, I will continue my past pattern of "I'll start tomorrow," and then tomorrow rarely comes. I have no excuse for not working out. I'm dressed for it daily when I go to school! All I need to do is alter my route home! How hard is that?!?!?!

So... for tonight...
My plan is to go running right away after school. Then go home, possible update the blog from Thanksgiving and Christmas (I know, I know... LONG overdue!) and meet the crew at B Dubs where my dinner will be a nice salad and a tall glass of water.

For the first time in a long time, I am not weighing myself daily. Instead, I am waiting until Monday evening to assess the progress.

Here's to a happier me!!!!!
