I'm back after a month long absence...the holidays were just so hectic that I let several things go in order to keep myself sane. One of those things was recording my food and exercise on SparkPeople. I ate moderately well for most of the month but my exercise completely fell by the wayside.

The good news is that I'm back and working to get in touch with my inner athlete. I've always been catagorized within my family as somewhat of a hothouse flower. It's a stereotype that I played into for most of my life. But inside me there's always been a person who wants to be athletic. Not that I want to be an Olympian or anything...just someone in control of their body.

To that end, I made a decision regarding myself...I'm going to run a 5K this year. It's an idea I've always toyed with but never committed to. But no more... I heard about the Couch to 5K program on SparkPeople several months ago. On New Year's Day, I actually Googled it to get the specifics. That's when I realized that I could actually do it. And so I decided right then and there that I would run...

I've just started the program...a nine week progression...and though my calves are sore my spirit is SOARING! I feel empowered and look forward to my goal...running in the McGuire's 5K in March. No more sidelines for me...

    When we feel the satisfaction of accomplishment we are motivated to take on new challenges. Knowing that the attention and resources we’ve channeled into a certain goal have brought us success gives us the confidence we need to take on more responsibilities. We also have a greater understanding of our own personal strengths, and that knowledge enables us to make good choices about the plans we make, the tasks we take on, and the new goals we wish to set for ourselves. We are ushered along by the momentum of our own success, and greater success naturally manifests as a result. Use today’s accomplishments to fuel you into action by taking on more endeavors, and you will enjoy still greater achievements.

    ARE YOU STILL FOCUSED AND STICKING WITH IT?
    WE'RE MISSING YOU!
