The other day I stopped to pick up a sub (sandwich) to take to Todd while he was at work. I ordered one for my dinner also. (No worries, I had the calories to eat it!). I stood there waiting for the food to be ready and I found myself
Yesterday I was driving down the road. I was occupying my mind by thinking about running. I've been running (really it's more of a wog a cross between a walk and a jog) for 2 months now. It's not been a magical journey where I fell in love with the process. It's painful....not so much physically (guess I was in better shape than I thought) but emotionally. I have made the commitment to run through August 9th. So I have four more months to fall in love with the sport. But seriously, that's a long time. Yesterday my thoughts ended up with one sentence that kept going through my head. "Would it be quitting if I didn't run through the August 9th do or die date?" I posed the question later to my brother and his family when they stopped by to visit. My 12 year old nephew looked at me and said "Yeah, MaryFran! That is totally quitting!" So I guess I continue to run. I've quit at so much in my life. If I want to change, it needs to be enacted! Praying for some running love to hit me. Right now it's just a little bit of running hate.
Meanwhile, I'm looking forward to zumba restarting this week after a weeks break. Even bigger news, Sherry and I have committed to following Jillian Micheal's 30 day shred video. We are both prepared to start tomorrow on April 1 (no that is not an April fools day joke) and complete it this month. (what a coinky dink...30 day shred and April has 30 days!). It's going to be a busy month with zumba 2-3 times a week. Running 3 times a week. Thirty day shred every day and walks with sherry as many times as possible. Ohhh and bike season is beginning so add some bike rides in there.
SO my big thing for putting myself out there? I have started a facebook page for my weight loss efforts. I wanted it to be believing in myself to match my blog but alas that name was taken, so it is Believing in maryFran. I haven't invited family yet...I'm only slowly inviting friends...and I"m picking and choosing right now. But I know it's only a matter of time before I"m 'found out' So ready or not, I'm announcing to the world exactly where I'm at. The good, the bad and the ugly. Please feel free to like my page. https://www.facebook.com/BelievinginMaryFran I'm kinda planning it to be a cross between my journey, recipe links and inspirational things that I find. Motivation for me and hopefully motivation for others.
