Years away!

I haven't had a new blog post in forever.  I honestly haven't missed it either... But this evening I thought I'd revisit what I had started and decided that I should share what is new in my life.

So as some of you know I've started working towards a healthier me!  I've been eating well and going to the gym on a daily basis (except yesterday)...  Not only am I feeling better, but I'm starting to look better too (who knew that was even possible?!?)

On to exciting news.  Yesterday I bought a spiffy new pair of running shoes.  I tried on a whole bunch and the ones that fit best were a size 9.5, which is weird considering I couldn't even get some of the size 10's on these big ole flippers.  Best part about it was they were the cheapest pair at the store.  Yeaaaah buddy!

Okay, so if you think that was exciting you'll be thrilled to hear this!  I RAN!  I ran for 2 and a half minutes straight today (and I wasn't even dying at the end of it).  I know it doesn't sound like a lot to most of you.  But for me this is HUGE!!!! I'm pretty sure my spiffy new shoes had something to do with this.  All I know is that I'm on cloud 9 right now.  Who would have thought 6 months ago I'd be running at all?!?  I can't wait to go to the gym tomorrow to try and make it 3 minutes straight.

I can't wait to share more successes with you all!

  1. Its so good to see you back...I've missed your posts. Shoes have a great deal to do with how you feel and what you can do with your feet. Great job! I'm not much of a runner either so I can totally cheer you on for your 2 1/2 minutes, that is honest and truly AWESOME! WAY TO GO! Here's to great health and wonderful accomplishments!
