Since I already know that I am able to finish a half marathon, and I did two last year....I am signing up for THREE this year.
The one I am most excited about, will be run in Virginia Beach! My sister lives a mile from the beach, so I also get to take a vacation, and hang out with my sister!! The most exciting part, is that she will be the first person to ever be cheering me on at the end of a race! Being from Ohio, I am also super psyched to run a large portion of this race along the beach! (in September...when it isn't mind blowingly hot!)
Next, my work has an amazing new 12 month program for smoking cessation that basically pays you to quit smoking! I'm most interested in the fact that you are matched with a personal coach that can help you in specialized areas dependant on your needs. One of which is fitness and nutrition.
Gaining weight after all my hard work to lose it terrifies me more than the thought of breaking up with my relationship with nicotine! (and this scares the bejeebers out of me!!)
So...I'm going to try. Giving this an effort is more than I have done in the past where this is concerned, and I owe it to myself to try! Once I finally commited to losing weight by eating clean, and exercising I did it! I didn't look for a quick fix. I didn't try to cut corners. I worked my ass off to lose that last 65 lbs!
After all the years of trying and failing, when I lost the final 6lbs to reach my goal at my weigh in... I remember jumping for joy...and saying "I can't believe this is still working after all this time". My trainer asked why I was so surprised. I had nothing else to say other than "you really do get what you put in"
I hope that I have the same success with this smoking thing!!
What do YOU want to accomplish this year?
