Happy New Year imacookiefiend followers, it’s been a while. I promised myself when I first started this blog that I would be honest with myself. That isn’t always easy, but here goes. I have been on a bit of a downward spiral for the last few months with regards to my health trek, and now it’s time for me to admit that I need to get back to it.
Re-starting is never easy, but I have reached a point where I feel uncomfortable in my own clothes which means that I can either start buying bigger size clothes or get back to working out. Although I know what I need to do (ie. workout) I feel as if I’m venturing into new uncharted territories…to be honest I’m dreading it.
As some of you might know last year I ran my first 5K, which surprised everyone including myself since I do not run. Now with the weight that has slowly creeped up on me, I can’t quite run more than a few minutes, which is a little sad. So I have decided to give running another shot or at least go through the Couch to 5K training program once more.
After a short run today, I can tell you that it’s not going to be fun. Still road races will begin in April, and since nothing changes if nothing changes, then I need to change if I want to get back to a healthy weight.
I am cautiously optimistic about my journey towards a new goal, and hope that if you’re struggling to stay healthy or have strayed from it you’ll also find it in yourself to get back to the grind 🙂
