Tomorrow starts my new intense work out schedule. I am really pumped about it. I have step aerobics at 10:15. I did step aerobics in college and it takes me a little while to get the hang of it. Once I've got it down I am fine but I am just a little slow to catch on. I am not the most coordinated person you see. This promises to be an amusing time... especially for my classmates!

Sometimes you don't want to do things that you know you just have to do. Take running for example. I have to run. Run=happy. I know this... I have to run or I will be so depresso. I waited all day. I kept putting it off. I was getting more and more down on myself as the hours went by. Finally at 7:45 pm I dragged myself out there. I have to trick myself. I say- "Okay, I'll just put on my shoes and go onto the porch. I'm not interested in running." Then- "I'll just turn on my ipod and stretch. No running for me." Then- "I think I'll just walk down the street and see what all my neighbors are doing. Just walk. Not run." And then w/in seconds I am running. I am so glad that I went. I had the best run that I have had in a long time. It felt so good. I didn't get fatigued to where I had to walk home limping. And that is a victory for me. I felt like I had 2% body fat and was in the 26th mile of the Boston Marathon. In reality I was plodding along my favorite 2 mile jog in Troy, Ohio w/ something like 82% body fat. Not exactly as exciting. And that's okay... I'm dealing.
