I can't believe it has been one month! I can say I love running. Tonight my three oldest kids and I went running in my hometown ( they were on scooters) It was so much fun. I am excited to see what tomorrow brings.

I have been extremely tired the last two days I didn't even go running last night (i did bike though.) I dont want to run tonight again! I think I was in the sun to long yesterday it drained me and I have a sunburn to boot:(

So how funny.....the day after I wrote my last post I actually strained my hip. I had just gotten back from my morning run and decided to do some balance lunges. The first one I did my hip didn't cooperate and it hurt until today. I was actually pretty scared to run this morning but I did it anyway. And guess what it did not bother me at all... Yea!

I am trying to become a runner! Trying. I have never been a runner and I tried getting into it a couple of years ago but I have a bad hip and it started acting up so I stopped. I found out later that maybe if I gradually work into it my hip might adjust. So here goes. I have ran 5 days now on a course/ trail around my neighborhood and it feels wonderful so far. No hip pain yet so hopefully it won't start. My phone has an awesome app. that interrupts my music every couple of minutes to tell me my speed and distance. It is awesome. I am actually running at a much faster pace than on a treadmill ( or so it tells me.) So here goes to my lifelong dream of running a marathon or maybe half.

Well I had a rough day today...i felt like I ran and ran but never got anything done. I then came home to find our trampoline has blown over from all this crazy wind. The first thing I wanted to do was eat junk left over from our bbq last night (I resisted it easily last night .) I realize I am a stress eater and definitely eat for comfort! I did talk myself out of eating unhealthy, but only because I am in this competition. I need to figure out how I can have the will power without relying on outside sources to fuel me.

Here we go! I am soo excited to start this journey.

I was not planning on entering this comp until 2 days ago when I decided I need a push of motivation that I am lacking! I had been doing pretty good on my own until my family came into town and I blew all of my self (eating) control all weekend! So needless to say I am soooo excited and I have an new phone that will make blogging and weighing in much easier this time around.
