I can NOT believe I’m about to type this. Ya ready?
Ok, here goes….
I worked out for 2 and ½ hours today.
TWO AND HALF HOURS!
And I loved every minute of it. It was pure, uninterrupted ME time. No husband, no toddler, no email, no phone, nothing. Just me doing something good for myself and I feel fantabulous!
What has happened to me?
Seriously, 10 years ago I was the girl who would drive a half a mile to campus and get a 5 dollar parking ticket because I was too lazy to walk to my classes. LOL It just makes me laugh.
My friend, the trainer wants me to start working on a 10k run and I’m scared to death. She thinks I can do it and that the only thing that is holding me back is, well, me. I may be getting in better shape but I still have a hard time believing I can do it. It’s all a confidence thing, I know that. But when you’ve told yourself something for 20 years (I can’t run, I’m not an athlete, yada yada) it’s hard to break the mental limitations you put on yourself. My immediate response to the running idea was, “I can’t run” but that’s not true. That’s the old me talking. The truth is I CAN run. Yes I’m going to have to work on it but I can do it.
So I think I’m going to take her up on the offer.
Me, a runner. HA! LOL
Ok, gotta run. I’m working on a new recipe and a St. Patty’s treat for GreenLiteBites!
