So, the other day, I went to see a movie, UP, with my husband, kids, and a friend and her kids. It was a great movie. As I was getting ready to go though, I chose to put on running socks. I really wanted to go running that day and figured if I was already wearing running socks it would help me be just that little bit closer to running.
Next up, we get invited to my brother's place for dinner. And, we go. I was worried that running wouldn't fit in to my day. And really, by the time we got home and got the kids to bed, it was after 9:30pm. I said to my husband that I didn't think I'd have time to run, and he said "but you already are wearing your running socks!!" He was right, and so I put on shorts and a tshirt and went to the basement to run on the treadmill. I only did a half hour program, intervals, but was so glad that I actually went down and did it, since really, I could have just stayed upstairs and watched television.
And, the moral of the story is... sometimes, doing something to give yourself the upper hand, really is the way to go. If I hadn't put on my running socks before leaving earlier in the day, there is a high probability that I wouldn't have gone running at all. But, since I already had the socks on, there was really no excuse... and so, I ran...
Now, it's been one week since I started this blog, and I now weigh 194.6pounds (88.26kg), so, we're slowly making progress.
