I Faced My Crossroad

This weekend was one of those make or break moments in my life change.  I stood at a crossroad and could either quit or keep going.  I have already faced moments like it this year and have kept going.  This one snuck up on me, and I was having a hard time and a lot of self doubt, but I still got up and ran.  I still went to the gym this morning and kick my butt at boot camp. 

One of the main differences this time is that I have been able to face these crossroads and take the harder route and keep going.  Before, I had always quit when I was discouraged or when it got too hard.  I know I did it right this time.  I surrounded myself with a great support system and started this blog.  Thank you to everyone who reads this!  It really does help me get out of bed in the morning.  Another difference is how I approached my eating.  I knew what to do, so I did it.  I didn't call it a diet, because diets end.  I just started eating healthier and eating less, and I stopped eating late at night.  It's amazing how that works.  Eat right and eat smart. 

Thanks again for everyone's support!  Keep working hard and pushing through those hard times.  Do not give up on your goals whatever they are.

Chris you are amazing. I have had a few starts and stops this year with my exercise routine but because of a variety reasons. But when I read your blog I know that I can keep going too. I have also convinced my little sister to start training next week with me on the couch to 5k program. Keep it up, you will be happy that you did.
