Captain’s Log Stardate 0127.15

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 🙂
