back in the saddle...


well, i actually never got out, i just got...complacent. i'm not going to use the "lazy" word.

i watch the biggest loser. you'd think if they could do it, i could. but i was very content to run and walk at the gym. i was too tired. and it hurt. and i was doing SOMEthing, wasn't that good enough??

maybe it's the autumn air. i don't like running in the heat. maybe it was my friend kim who has met her goal of running 100 times in 2009. what?!?! i went back into my exercise log. i haven't even been to the GYM 100 times yet in 2009. sad, very sad.

but i have gotten the 5K bug again. time to run.

today i ran a 5K in the gym in about 37 minutes at an incline. that's good. especially since i've been complacent. and i'll be running a 5K on halloween.

and the biggie? i signed up for boot camp. my own home-grown version of the biggest loser, minus bob and jillian. but the complaining and groaning and moaning and dying will definitely be included.

tune in to see if i ride into the sunset...

Good for you! The autumn air has definitely helped me. I have this weird, "refuse to pay to exercise" thing, so when the temps are good, I am even more motivated to run around the neighborhood. Greg does not share my convictions, so we do have a Y membership, and he goes regularly. I would, too, but I don't want to leave the kids in childcare. Yes, I'm weird:).

But back to you. I am very, very impressed by the boot camp thing. Cathy Cook was trying to talk me into doing that thing they have at the church building, but it starts at 5:30 am, and that is just crazy talk:). You are way more disciplined than I am when it comes to boot camp! Good luck!

Oh, and I love how when you click on the link in your blog, my latest entry is an ode to Nestle Tollhouse cookies. Clearly, I'm the model of discipline.
