When I started exercising and working out last April 21st, I had a dream. Okay, I had several. I wanted to lose 40 pounds before nationals, I wanted to wear cute clothes again and I wanted to run a 5k.
I didn't quite make 40 pounds before nationals, but I did make 35. Yesterday, I went to Nordies and tried on cute clothes. I didn't buy anything... still paying off nationals, but I can wear cute clothes. (Even though I almost always get a size to big for me! I still can't believe my size!)
And yesterday I ran three miles, which I believe, is almost a 5k. Let me repeat that... THREE MILES! No stopping. No pausing. No walking. Just running. Three miles.
That pretty much made my day. Whatever I did and wherever I went, I said to myself, "I ran three miles."
I am strong. I can pretty much do anything I set my mind to. Damn that's a good feeling. I really love being over 40.
Today I go an see an academic advisor. I am strong. I can do anything. (VBG)
