I just wanted to post my happy 1-1-2010 story. A year ago January, I was at a pretty low point in my life-- heaviest ever weight, and completely out of shape. I didn't like to walk down to the end of my street because of the steep hill on the way back up.
Last night, I was on the treadmill and I've been doing a run/walk routine recently.
I still can't believe that I run a little. Some of you may remember that I'm the girl who NEVER RAN, ever, at least not more than a few steps, for probably at least ten years.
A few years ago, I used to dream that I was running... it made me sad. I assumed it would remain a dream.
So anyway, I'm on the treadmill, blasting Dixie Chicks on the ipod, and I'm about fifteen minutes into my work out, and all of a sudden, I just get this RUSH...ENDORPHINS!
I'm just running along, feeling great, smiling.
I felt SO TERRIFIC, not tired at all, and I'm thinking... what a GREAT way to start the New Year.
