This time of the year, every single year, I find myself in funk. I feel blah, Im tired of snow, I wan to moan and groan and complain!
Rachelle posted her virtual 5K on Wednesday. Rachelle doesnt know this, but she has been a very big inspiration to me!! She takes time out of her busy day to encourage me on my posts. (she even taught me its ok to rant!!) SO, this morning, after almost three weeks of absolutely no running,(lots of walking tho) I decided to get off my duff and start again!! It took me 44 minutes to do 3.1 miles. I did it with 5 minute runs 3 minute walks. (Week 5 day 1 of C25K) Im not using this time as my final time for grandmas birthday, because I still have until the 21st to add some speed!. Thanks Rachelle, for giving me the push I needed to 'move it'.!!
Amber is my daughter. She now has a blog. Go check her out. Go ahead, Ill be here when you get back.
She was recently diagnosed with Lymes disease. Suffered from lots of joint pain!, BUT she didnt let that stop her! She pushed thru!! Over Christmas break she went to the gym with her dad, Body Pump, Spin, Body Combat. She walked every single day. Snow and ice did not stop her.
She has an amazing life story, (a blog post in its own). BUT, she has managed to work thru pain, and frustration and lose 122 lbs so far. Shes an amazing inspiration!! And she hides the Peanut Butter M & Ms when Ive eaten to many!!!
