Day 1
September 21, 2009

163lbs was what the scale said this morning. I knew that I was gaining weight I didn’t know that I’m almost obese. I ran today for the first time in awhile. I use to love to run when I lived in American Canyon because it was easier. There were no cars, no trees, no nothing. Just the street and me. I ran almost every day because I had to get out of the house. Now that I’ve lived here in Berkeley, my more permanent home, i have so many more excuses. With all that aside, this morning, I went for my first run. I’ve had a lot of first every things in the past few months but I think this time it has to stick. For my own health. I need to forget about LOOKING good but focus on feeling better and getting better.

During the run:
Sprinted 2 sides of every block then walked the other 2. I think it was about 20minutes for the entire run.

Feeling: My chest was very tight but I think if I pushed myself I could have ran the entire thing. I just kept psyching myself out like “o ur tired.. u better stop” type deal. ick.

Tomorrow’s goal: wake up early and run. This time I’ll try to run around the entire block without stopping. It’s not much but it’s a goal right? May blog tomorrow, may not…. work Tuesday morning. Boo.
