Somebody must have been chasing me...

because I ran yesterday.
I always used to say that I don't run because nobody ever chases me. Somebody with a knife, a guy with a gun, Barney... I would run from them. But yesterday I pushed some weights and then walked over to the treadmill, stepped on, and ran. I ran slowly, but I ran. I did not run far. But I ran. I am proud a little proud. I ran about a mile and a half. Like I said, not far. But I can't remember the last time I ran for exercise. Before we moved anyway - 3 years at least. So, I brought my gym bag and I'm going to hit it again today. My legs hurt. But I'm going to run anyway. At least the same distance. Maybe more. The hard thing is convincing myself that someone is chasing me. I think I'll picture him... Scary!

You could always think back to "Witch Hazel", her peanut butter baclava, and who nows how many boxes of adult nice, yet SO frightening.

I have been working out 2 to 3 times a week now, for about 2 months. I warm up with a 5-10 min cardio on a machine called "The Arc" its like low impact running, very smooth strides, its very nice. Then I do about 35 min of resistance training, upper body and lower body. then if I have time I get back on the Arc for about 20 min... I have lost 5% body fat so far....
