I’ve decided it’s time for me to start running again. I’m doing fairly well with eating right – clean, organic food most of the time. My family has actually learned how to eat out this way. My choices are limited, but thankfully there are a few places in Austin that do serve this lifestyle.
Shopping today made me feel really good about myself. I bought 3 different kinds of bottoms – two pairs of capris and one pair of shorts. All different brands. All size 14. And they all fit well – not a little snug, not too tight, just right. BIG feat for me. Usually I am the one buying those just a little snug pants that I hope will become loose on me in a few weeks. Doesn’t usually happen. But this really made me realize that I can do this. I can continue to be healthy and lose the weight again.
And I remember how good running actually makes me feel. Now, I don’t really enjoy the act of running. It’s hard work – on my body. But it’s so good for me. I have more energy and my mind is less cluttered. When I was running, I was able to go off all my med – sleeping, anxiety, depression. The only things I was taking were my vitamins and Motrin. That right there says why I should start up again.
Oh, and the fact that our dog is way less crazy when he’s running daily/every other day.
Now, why I decided to start in June is beyond me. I guess I like the horrible heat and humidity. Or else, I’m clueless. I’ll go with the latter.
