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!!
