I did it! (Jennifer)

Yesterday I was feeling a little cranky and still not all that great.  So I decided to fight back and get on the treadmill.  I have to help myself where I can.  I was hoping I could accomplish a 5k.  I am not best friends with the treadmill and definately prefer to run outside.  But this crappy weather hasnt made it possible yet.  So I hopped on the treadmill knowing that a few weeks ago was my last run and it was about a mile and a half.  I was pretty happy with that because before that I hadnt run in probably months.  Well, I accomplished it.  I set the treadmill on 5 mph which is leisurely for me and off I went.  It was like I had something to prove and I did just that.  3.1 miles.  And it felt good.  It was that accomplished feeling I have been missing all winter while not running. 

Today's reason for losing weight:
Health.  Plain in simple.  I want to be healthy for myself and my family.  Wanting to be healthy has been weighing heavily on my mind lately.

Today I am thankful for:
*my husband who made a comment that running and exercise really does make a difference for me.  Its kind of easy to *forget* that when you get away from it.
