Back on again...

I hate running.

Three weeks ago, it was what I did for fun, in my spare time, whenever I could. I rarely missed a day. I would wake up early on weekends to get out there before the family woke up. On some days, I would even go out twice. Whatever it was, I would rather run.

Well, it's funny how things change. Running was something I wanted to do, not something I had to do. Now, I have to run. It's a great stress reliever once I actually get out there. I don't want to lose what I worked so hard for. There is no way I am starting all over.

This weather doesn't help. Don't get me wrong, I love that it's cooler out. But, it also makes me want to curl up under a blanket and eat baked goods all day. Well, the baked goods are gone, so I really have no excuse not to get out from under that blanket. Or, I could just lay around and pray for more baked goods. ;-)
(I am only kidding...please don't bring me any baked goods...I have no self control right would be one of those times that I thank God for those unanswered prayers.)

Today was the day I chose to get my butt back in gear. No more moping around. No more excuses. No more stuffing my face with those comforting carbs. I went out once with two of the kids and the dog and then again by myself this afternoon. And what do you know....I actually enjoyed myself. I think I will do it again tomorrow.

Maybe I don't hate running after all.

2 things to add:

Good for you Beth for getting you butt into gear!! Now I have to get your will power!! By the end of the day of lifting the boxes that I pack and packing them up I dont feel like doing a thing but standing in a HOT shower. I feel like going out and running right now but I would probably get hit my lighting.... EKKK....

After last night, I'm pretty sure I still hate it ;o)
