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.

This time I am ready to make a change. I need this as I want to get back to my old happy self. However this time I can feel this change all the way down to my very core. I am ready. I want this. This will be my thought dump, through the good and the bad. My successes and my try agains. The tears of happiness and tears of sadness.
Much love but Sorry, I've got to run
