Oi My Shins!

The husband and I went out for a walk/jog today. Day 2 of 2 so far. I have been putting off signing up for a halloween 5k for a few weeks, but decided today that it was time. And lo and behold, what did I do? I decided to do the 10k instead. Am I braindead??? This girl has not run a mile in her life. The most I've ever "ran" and by ran, I mean jogged with short strides, was today. Bryan was ahead of me(he usually is) and I was just like..... doggone it... I AM NOT GOING TO TRAIL BEHIND! So I jogged to catch up with him. So, I "ran" about a tenth of a mile. Then walked a block, and then "ran" another tenth. So, you see, right now I'm not a runner. But this non runner is going to be doing something in 3 weeks. Whether it's walking, jogging or running. I've gotta make almost 7 miles happen.
Bryan and I went for a total of 2 miles today, with a few hills. Without any trying or training, there is no way I will be able to run any part of that 10k on the 29th. So, I've set myself up a little plan to help get ready for it. Woot.
Another thing I am looking forward to this month is the zumbathon this Friday! It's been a month since I've been to a zumba class at my gym. I miss it a lot, I've just been feeling so crappy that I haven't wanted to do anything. But today is a new day. I'm tired of being crabby, sad and irritable.
I've been doing a lot of thinking. Which I do that a lot. But one of the things I've decided is that I'm going to make a huge effort to stop procrastinating. I procrastinate on everything! Including getting a move on with weightloss. So that is going to be my focus. Tomorrow is not guaranteed, I must make changes today. I'm hoping that focusing on this... everything should fall into place. With everything.
All I know.... is that right now... I'm within my calorie range, my house isn't a huge mess, we are getting rid of things in the house we don't need, my homework is done, and I can hardly walk. I may be sore.... but I feel amazing!
