9 Miles of Reflection

Wow, I can't believe how long it's been since I've been here!

I've been so hit-and-miss lately. I'm finally trying to get back on track- in my running, in eating healthy, in getting through all of the piles of paperwork at work and at home. And, don't even get me started on changing my name. UGH! What a hassle!
But, a hassle that is well worth it! No more!!
(In case you missed it, the divorce was final on Wednesday).

Saturday morning, I went out on a nice long 9 mile run. This was the longest run for me in a while. I wasn't running for time, just getting in the miles. The weather was fantastic, and I felt really great. This helped me in my reflection of why I've done what I've done to myself. I can't believe that I've gained roughly 25 pounds since this time last year. I have noone to blame for this but myself. I have gotten so lazy in everything! I don't want to drag my lazyass out of bed, so I don't get up and run. I don't feel like going out when the weather isn't absolutely perfect, so I don't go out and run. I don't enjoy running on the treadmill, so I don't run on the treadmill.
And the fact is, I'm only miserable when I DON'T run. I just convince myself otherwise.

No more!
And, you can hold me to that.

Glad you're back on the wagon. I went through a point where I was gaining about 10 lbs per year. I finally had to make some major changes. It sounds like you're ready! Good luck :)
