welcome, welcome 2011!
so i've just realized, more then ever, as i walk past mirrors, or look at pics of myself from recent shin-digs, whoa! i've really let meself go! yes, i have had 4 beautiful children, but i've not been holding myself accountable for my fitness level. i've been pretending to be athletic in this overweight body. i don't want to pretend anymore, i want to BE! i want to look like a runner...so, i need to run. i want, and will, take my health more seriously, as our bodies are GIFTS...it is MY responsibility to take care of myself.
i can sit and complain that i'm the heaviest i've ever been. that i'm sick of being the sweet chubby girl down the road. that i hate walking past mirrors, or sit next to all these fit little barbies wherever i go...so, you know what, i tell myself? GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND DO SOMETHING! faith w/o works is dead. you can't gain a testimony of the scriptures just by holding them. you have to ACT- you have have to pick them up and actually read them. well, same goes with my body. i can't look at runners magazines or watch others run to get a runners body.... I HAVE TO RUN! so, my friends, i am holding myself accountable and responsible this new year of 2011. i am what i make of myself!
