A Wake Up Call..
After a few weeks of falling off the wagon I'm finally back up. I took the dog for a fast walk around the neighborhood last night. It felt good. This morning I decided to jump on the treadmill. Sad realization of how very out of shape I am. Ten years ago my husband bought me the treadmill for my birthday. I was very out of shape. I remember stepping on and pushing the 20 minute workout and struggling to get through it, but with persistence I made progress and thought I would never be back to that...WRONG!! As I stepped on today and attempted to go back to my usual routine I got a huge wake up call that I could not do it no matter how hard I tried. I felt how the extra weight is effecting my body in a very bad way. Very sad, but the good news is I kept moving, kept pushing myself just a bit. I completed 2 miles in 30 minutes. I am gonna do make it this time. There's only one way to do it and today is was keep moving one foot in front of the other!!
