Highway to Health
I guess I've been trying to sort myself out for a while now. I tried last year with little success and hardly any motivation. I enjoyed eating healthy and exercise but I had no goals and no reason to make any real change. I wanted to be healthy but simply put I couldn't be bothered to make it. However I have gotten to a point in my life where I have just been miserable with myself. Due to unfortunate circumstances in life and other stresses I've not put any time into myself. And on the 27th of may 2017 I was due to run the Rock 'n' Roll 5km in liverpool. I hadn't trained much for it or done anything for it. But boy was that a turning point in my life. I'll write more about that day in another post!
After that run I felt so alive and happy. And a couple of days later my attitude started to change. I started umming and arring about whether I should commit to going back to Liverpool and do the half marathon. *spoiler alert* I did commit to doing exactly that. I felt like I was ready to make a change and work on me. Yesterday, I had an argument with that little voice in the back of my head which tells me I can't do it and I should just stay at home and try again tomorrow. I won though and I restarted couch to 5km. And tonight I am going to rejoin slimming world and hold my head high as I walk through the door.
Much love but Sorry, I've got to run
