There are things that we do and while we are doing them, it sometimes sucks.

Today running was one of those days, none of it was really fun, except the last block, could be that 'shake loose' came on or it could have been that I was almost done, I am not sure, which was my motivating factor.  But AFTER I was done, I had this incredible feeling, I could have run again (though that would have been nuts), I had forgotten how good it feels when I am done running. 

Today, I could have easily made the excuse about how I didn't have enough time to run, but I have this skinny chic that wants out of this fat body, and skinny chic and fat chic decided to rumble today, and skinny chic kicked the fat girl's butt. Then I was hungry, but it was 3PM and I'm going to dinner at 5:30.  I wanted a piece of delicious fried chicken, however, I had a trusty lara bar in my purse. 

This is more about one or two choices for me, I've got some health issues that I am trying to get rid of, and healthy eating and exercise are the two best choices to do that.  There is not some magic drink or supplement.  Being healthy to me means I need to make good choices and when I OCCASIONALLY make a bad one, let it be one bad one, not one hundred, and I chose to love myself, because it was a choice.

So tonight, after I get home from Les Mis I'm gonna grab the latest book I'm reading, the runner's diet, and get one step closer to losing some of this dead weight!

Proverbs 21:20 In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has
