Day 150: Running first mile in over 6 months

Sunday, September 25, 2016

This morning I ran my first mile on the treadmill in over 6 months and I ran the whole thing without stopping!!! I am sooo excited about this. I for the first time am excited about turning 30, I know that 30 doesn't seem like a big deal for most people, but for me it is a major turning point in my life. I have always put myself on the back burner. But I am ready to start taking care of myself.. as silly as it sounds ( or dramatic) I am at the half way point of my life and as I am looking around at my life so far. I am not happy with it. There are things that I have been wanting to do but have held back, there are people that I have wanted to let go of ( because of negativity) but have been too afraid to.

The biggest leap that I made was 3 months ago I got a new job, I was at my last job for just under 5 years, but I was tired of the work piling on and the hours adding up I would take the mounting stress home with me and it was affecting every aspect of my life. I came to the realization that I do want to finish my Nursing degree and that in the pattern I was going, this was not going to happen anytime soon. So I got a job at a medical office , and I am so much happier here. ( a lot less stress)

Now it's time to work on my health! This past week I went shopping with my sisters and I saw a dress that I have been eyeing for awhile and it was on sale... and a bonus so was a pair of heals that match it perfectly. So I bought them. They are my goal for my 30th as the dress I bought is a size smaller.

I am done feeling sorry for myself and for making excuses for not doing what I want with my life. I need more accountability so my next goal which is an old one I just haven't stuck with it, I am going to log on every morning and blog about my progress.

My birthday present for myself will be to run a half marathon that takes place in my city every May that I have for the last 10 years been wanting to do. I am going to participate and complete the 13 miles for my 30th birthday!

Have a great Sunday everyone!

* Remember it's never too late to start!
