Fat Girl Confession #23


I confess… I never actually believe I could meet this goal 

I did it!!! Today I actually ran for 2 minutes straight and it actually felt good, at least at first anyway.  I know it’s not a huge deal for those who can run for five or ten minutes with no problem, but coming from a girl who used to hate the idea of even walking on a treadmill and who started off struggling just to jog for 30 second intervals, it is a very big deal for me.  I think that I might stay at this milestone for a while before bumping it up a notch because to be honest I do feel my body starting to try and give out on me but this time I am not going to let that happen.  I got a compliment today about how much I am starting to really come down and while that is not what I saw when I looked in the mirror.  However in the last blog post I wrote about taking stock in the little blessings and someone else noticing my progress, even if I can’t see it, is something to be happy about.  So my little blessings that I am celebrating today are my compliment and my 2 minutes because they are something to be celebrated.  I can’t wait until I can say I can run 3 minutes, but that might be a little ways off, but I will get there because I won’t stop until I do.  Until next time…Don’t forget to celebrate those goals you accomplished today!!!
