So today's WLW topic is about lifestyle changes.
For the last 11 1/2 weeks, I have been training to walk a mini-marathon. I was somewhat coerced by my aunt Sharon to do this. I anticipated that I would walk the Indianapolis Marathon this year, maybe for a few years in a row, and that would be the end of it.
I think I shared that 7 weeks into training I would have given anything to do something beside walking-- Wii Fit, EA Sports active, Pilate's-- ANYTHING. I have never in my life been so sick of putting one foot in front of the other.
Then... it happened. The light switched flipped. And here I am, think about running 5Ks. There's one of Thanksgiving I'm considering (even though it would mean training while on vacation). There's another a few weeks before Christmas.
I also have discovered how awful I feel after I eat out. I just feel like an absolute slug. So lately I have doing a much better job of avoiding going out to eat as much as possible (this is HUGE around here).
Now, I continue to enjoy sugar more than I should, but you can't change everything all at once, right?
To me, learning to enjoy exercise and pushing myself in that way is a very big lifestyle change. And for now, I'm very happy with that!
