Just do it!

Saw a quote yesterday and thought I would share, "Running is mostly mental, and we are all insane!" I love it!  I love to run; I hate to run.  It's a love-hate relationship but above all, I love the feeling I get after I finish my run.  Pushing through the mental blocks, pushing through the fatigue and reaching a goal you never thought possible is such an amazing feeling.

I still feel like the little fat kid in the back of the class trying to keep up with the big kids, and I am not sure if that feeling will ever go away.  I just love trying and reaching my personal goal.  Right when I finished my 25 minutes, a guy who was also running told me great job.  He runs marathons and told me I was doing a great job.  I love that feeling.

Keep working towards your goals!  Even if you have stopped and become discouraged, start back up, keep going.  Nothing feels better than finishing what you started.  Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels.  If you cannot find 30 minutes in the day to do SOMETHING physical, than you should really reevaluate your priorities!  I say that with love because I know its true!

Hey you altered my great quote..... "nothing tastes as good as being thin feels." :) I have known a lot of seriously overweight people who swear they are healthy but unfortunately the weight makes that not really true due to all the associated complications. I am shooting for thin(er) and healthy! Seriously great job with all the effort you are putting into the new improved YOU!
