The last few weeks the ‘light bulb’ has gone on and I’ve made a bunch of changes in my life. Two of them are getting in shape and eating healthier. This morning I started the Couch-to-5K program. For someone that’s pretty sedentary in my daily life it was a challenge but I was able to finish it without too much pain. I’m hoping to be able to run in my first 5K this fall after I complete the 9 week program.
I’ve also started to eat healthier. One of the nice things about where I work is the closest restaurant within walking distance is Subway. I know Subway isn’t a very healthy option but in the fast food realm it’s one of the better ones. Today’s menu was a 6″ turkey breast on 9 grain wheat with lettuce, tomatoes, black olives and lite mayo. Another change I’ve made is I’ve cut soda completely out of my diet. Regular soda is just empty calories and diet soda has artificial sweeteners that aren’t very healthy for you. From here on out it’s water.
I feel really good about where things are going. I’ve got goals set in place and a sense of motivation, determination and conviction to accomplish them. All this wouldn’t be possible without Jesus and I’m so thankful for that. Phillipians 4:13
At the risk of sounding cliche, if I can do it, anyone can. I hope keep posting updates here as it goes.
