Here I sit, dripping sweat from every pore in my body. Yuck! I feel gross but SO accomplished!
Hacking up a lung from being out of breath.
So sore ... And craving a shower.
I've realized that I think I would enjoy running the more and longer I do it. I don't like feeling so physically weak while I'm running, but that's why I am here to change!
My random thoughts during my run:
Man this could very well be the death of me.
My lungs are going to burst! I am definitely regretting ever smoking.
When an older man walking by in opposite direction says to me "It's a tough work out", he's probably just making a quick casual comment and trying not to be concerned at the sight of me gasping for air, dripping in sweat and looking like I could collapse in the nearest lawn. yes, that really did happen
I definitely need to start taking glucosamine pills because my knees are bad and hurt so bad.
I need new headphones cause my SkullCandy ear buds don't stay in my ears. GRRR!
I should've picked a cooler day to start running, but ...why wait?! That's what I've been doing!
Oh man, what's that sm--- AW MAN! I forgot to put on deodorant! Note to self! Do NOT forget deodorant!
How do people run when it's so hot outside? Or wait... When its really cold outside? Yikes! But I'm gonna do it!
Man, I hope I don't see anyone I know from high school...O_o
(With every step) Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.
I'm proud of myself! I'm doing it! I'm running! Go Me!! :)
|We did good, my friends.|
This week Justin and I are starting the gym. Due to our limited source of babysitters we are starting by going 3 nights a week. We would like to begin by going together so that we can help each other get into the swing of going. Maybe after a few days/weeks going 3 days a week, we can also go separately and each take turns watching Annaliese. Right now, my mom, his mom and his brother & sister in law are all taking a night to watch Annaliese. It's nice to have help, because this will surely help Justin and I get in shape like we both would like.
Also, since I don't think that I am ready to (successfully) take on 3 classes in college for financial aid to cover my tuition and I can't pay out of pocket for 1-2 classes a semester, I am just going to start with Non-Credit courses. I want to get back into the swing of going to school again. I have researched a local community college and found that they have an online writing course. I think this would be great for me because it's only 6 weeks, I will be able to write more AND it will help me become a better blogger! :) I am hoping to begin the next class that starts in September. :)
Thank you to all of you for your kind comments and support that you've given me. Everyone needs a little help sometimes, and I greatly appreciate you having faith in me, a "stranger". It means a lot.
I am working towards my goals, slowly but surely.
