A New Found Love

My New Years resolution this year was to get in shape, eat healthy and loose 15 lbs. I somewhat do this every year but for some reason, this year I am extra determined! I think as a dietitian and working with a bunch of athletic healthnuts since gaining this new job may have something to do with it. If nothing else, I have lots and lots of support partners which is the biggest help in the world! I have lost 7 lb since October and I have 8 more lbs to go.
So, my new found love, aside from eating really healthy, has become running. Until January I have never ran even 10 feet in my entire life (ok, maybe that's a little far fetched, but...) I am now a committed runner. We got the Wii fit and it gives me a trainer and a program and we run. I am up to 1.8 miles each day and days that I have extra time, I run twice. I have completed 25 days, only missing one since the year started and I FEEL GREAT!!! I now truely know what a runners high is and how super great it feels. I can't wait for our foot of snow to melt and warmer weather to arrive so I can get outside and run some more!! I have a new passion and I love it!

So are there any bloggy runners out there with any good tips or advice? I'd love to hear from you.

Good for you! I have been loving my Wii Fit this year, I just unlocked the free run and I can't wait to try it out. It is amazing what you can got when you start stringing little jaunts togehter. Keep it up!

I think that is the key to fitness, and sticking with it...finding your passion. Glad you found yours, and kudos to you and your weight loss.

Way to go! I wish I could be a runner! I just absolutely can not stand it! Maybe some day!!
