My goal is to get back into exercising and eating healthier. I have done it in the past, but have picked up some bad habits along the way. The heaviest I was was 203 pounds which was caused by being unhappy in the situation I was in. I didn't feel like I could control anything in my life, so I decided to control my eating. Unfortunately it wasn't a good type of eating. Now I want to get back to the weight I was before, which was around 150 pounds and then evaluate from there.

I have a new found interest in running, but I am by no means a natural runner, so it is really a challenge for me. I started out with the goal of running a 5K and have reached that goal. I have recently completed the C25K and One Hour Runner programs and loved them. I am now going to be training for a half marathon that I hope to run in the Spring. I never thought I would accomplish these goals when I started out. It is amazing how different I feel, how bummed I am when I miss a run, and how much I am loving getting in shape. Running really is helping me to transform my life to something great!
