After my last pregnancy, and the birth of my most demanding babe, I have most certainly stopped taking care of myself. I haven't lost my pregnancy weight, which came off quickly with the first two, I haven't spent time on my appearance, and I have not spent any time on my health. I put health, fitness, and general well being up there with great parenting, and this new year I made a promise to myself to get myself back. Motivated, yes, but struggling too. My family places huge time commands on me, and babe doesn't let me out of her sight. Husband has trouble watching her, and she is madly in love with him. However, I made this commitment to myself, and I will keep it. So, I made a new goal. I have signed up to run a 1/2 marathon on May 15th, and what a challenge this will be. I cannot yet run a mile without stopping. I am 20 pounds heavier than usual. It has been nearly 2 1/2 years since I have been fit. Wow. Long time for me.
So, here I am, telling the world (I already posted on FB and told my mom!) that I am doing it! Yes, indeed I am!
