So....after wanting to lose weight for a long time, today I finally did something about it and did my first C25K run. I found it difficult, and had to walk through one of the running minutes, but I did it, and am feeling really proud of myself. I will reward myself with a lovely hot shower. To motivate myself to continue, I'm going to prominently display (probably in the lounge) a list of all the runs I plan to do, and cross them off triumphantly as I do each one. And treat myself to something when I get to the end - I knit, so probably some lovely yarn. I really don't enjoy exercise normally, so I think this will be a difficult process for me, but I like the fact that there's a community of other people out there, doing the same.
