RUN HAPPY!!!

I guess it is time for me to update my page. Especially since it isn't 2012 anymore. It's another year and I am still here...but that is a great thing! It means that I am still moving forward and refusing to turn back. I have come so far in the past few of years, while I haven't made goal weight I am so happy with the results so far. And I have did a little back sliding and had some weight gain but I know that if I keep pushing forward I will get where I want to be.

It hasn't been easy I have had set backs and am still struggling with food, I guess food will always be my frenemy. I realize I have an unhealthy relationship with food but I am learning to work around that. I am not willing to give up the foods that I love so I have to learn to eat in moderation but nothing is off limits. If I can watch what I eat 80% of the time I look at it as a positive lifestyle change. I want this to be permanent this time I know that diets don't work for me and I just have to learn to control my eating the best I can with changes that I can live with for the rest of my life.

I have only ran two races since 2012, life got in the way :( But I am going to try and run one race a month this year. With my first one today.

FINDINGBOBBIE Going to head out for my 5 miles, I just wish I would have got some sleep last night. My leg workout left my legs achy all night and I tossed and turned. Hoping for a nap later, but I don't it...

Bobbie, thank you so much for reading and commenting on my blog. I see from my friend feed how much you've been exercising. Wow! I'm always in awe! You have a resting heart rate of 48?! You are doing great!! With all that intensive training, though, I wonder how you find the time to read blogs, especially my long, rather rambling ones! So I wanted to tell you how much I really appreciate it. Thank you so much, and keep up the great work of being in excellent shape!
