Feeling Frumpy

Do you ever start feeling just blah about yourself? When everything is just piling up and it is hard to figure out how to get anything accomplished! I have been feeling that way lately and desperately need to get out of my funk.

I have never worried about my weight a ton. I am not thin at all but am usually comfortable with a certain number and I don’t fret about it too much. Lately not so much. My clothes have not been fitting and I just felt really yuck.

I came up with a great plan and told my husband that I had an idea on how to lose weight. he said “Let me guess”. His first guess was your going to stop drinking soda. I said No way I can’t live without sprite. He then said, “your going to stop eating chocolate.” I said nope that’s not it.

I then realized if I was not going to actually do anything nothing was going to happen. I downloaded the couch to 5k app over a year ago and had not used it yet. I have talked about it but never done it. I figured this would be my first step. I really want to be more fit and healthy before I get pregnant again (yes with baby number four, am I nuts?)

My cute family bought me nice running stuff for mother’s day and I just finished week one of the program. it is kicking my butt and I can hardly move after only three thirty minute workouts. Hopefully it will get easier. I am definitely on a quest. Wish me luck.

Oh and I still have not given up sprite or chocolate. One step at a time people!

    I could have written this! well, y’know, except that whole I don’t drink soda or eat chocolate thing… and the whole I don’t EVER run thing…

    okay, just the frumptastic tight clothes part…

    I guess I need to up my workouts a bit…

    or lower my intake by a LOT.

    I’ve heard great things of that program. Not sure I am brave enough to try it though, but great for you for making it past week 1 Yay!
