The day is here, I have been wanting to start running for ages, I have finally got the correct gear, new running trainers, a sports bra and I have downloaded the couch to 5k podcast to listen to, I have planned to start on my journey later on this afternoon.
My other half runs and I have finally admitted to myself that I am jealous of him, I haven't run in about 13 years, well since I was forced to do P.E at secondary school, and even then when I wasn't 6 stone overweight I hated running, I used to throw the Javelin instead and I was pretty good at it. The most physically demanding thing I have done recently was give birth, but even that wasn't recent (She is nearly 2!) so I can't use that excuse anymore...
I've been trying to lose weight for a while, I recently lost a stone and have joined Rosemary Conley to help with the rest of my weight loss. I admit I do 'fall off the diet wagon' quite regularly, I just love food and have little self restraint, not a good combination! I also love baking, however I seem to eat most of what I make. Hmmmm.....
Anyway, Ive decided that the time has come to lose all this excess baggage and get fit.
I have two goals: 1) I turn 30 in 2 years time and I DO NOT want to be 'fat and thirty'. I think 2 years is a realistic time to lose 6 stone and become an athletic goddess (!)
and 2) I would love to be able to join the athletic club where I live and be able to run with them without looking stupid.
Will be back later after my first walk/jog
