I woke up this morning and ever muscle in my legs and even my mid section hurt! I know it was from running yesterday, but even so I have never felt more proud of me. I could have moaned and complained and stayed in bed as the old Kristin would have done. Instead, I pulled my tired, sore, achy ass up off the sofa, and I grabbed Max and we headed out the door.
Now mind you, I did not run today. But I did walk my three mile walk, and yes it was hard and I was slower than normal. I did it however. I pushed through the soreness and finished.
6 months ago, this would not have been me. I am such a different person today. I am an "exercise junkie"! I actually want to work out and I am looking forward to it these days!
Maybe I will actually look 100% different come next June. Perhaps my enormous butt will finally fit into a size 12 again. It is exiting to wonder how this will all play out. But today I am focused on working what I have right now..today!
I am not good at long term planning, perhaps because I lost sight of the future when Adam died. I am better at the short term goals.
I am so glad I did it, sore or not!
