I did it!!

So many of you might know that I just don't like to exercise, but having 2 babies in 2 years can cause havoc on your already larger than liked body. So I decided late last week that I was going to start to train for a couch to 5K starting today. It starts out slow, but that's what I need since I don't exercise. I have even found a race to do in my set 9 weeks, and funny enough it is in my childhood hometown! I did it!! I went out this morning and jogged/walked for my 30 min. just like I was suppose to. I didn't even need my inhaler. Yes, I looked ridiculous, and yes my fat was jiggling everywhere, but I did it! That right there is a huge accomplishment for me. I am now doing this every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the next 9 weeks. Stay tuned for casual embarrassing updates as I go. And can I just say that I held off on telling Adam for a while because I knew he would be so excited. He has run numerous 5K races, 2 marathons, and a half marathon and is just itching to start running again. As soon as I told him that I decided to do this, his face lit up like I told him we were having a baby all over again. It was very cute! And actually I have to admit that he was the one that found the race for me to run. Now he is gonna see what it is like to wait in the rain/snow/cold with babies and see me run past for a second and go wait by the finish line. Maybe he will actually get to see me cross it, not like me on mulitple occasions!
