I ran today! I didn’t feel winded after my first mile, so I sprinted on and off for my second mile at the park. This is huge for me. I’ve always secretly wanted to be a runner. When I see someone jogging on the sidewalk, I feel like they belong to some special club. Or I think they look happy and healthy, and all they need to be happy are some workout clothes and running shoes. To me, running seemed so mysterious and so out of touch. I’d say, “I could never do that. I’m too out of shape” I never wanted to look silly getting winded so easily in front of other people. But today, I just had my head phones on and felt the music. If I felt embarrassed, I’d just run with my head down until I passed that group of people. But guess what? I did it!
I also logged my food today and came in under budget.
Here’s a snapshot of my day and of the awesome park nearby.
