its time

I have been horrible about getting exercise in.
I found out about a 5K right across the street from my house, at the high school.
April 29th.

I am going to pay the $20 and sign up for the 5k walk.
If I don't just do it, I never will.
I also found there will be another 5k on July 4th.  Maybe I can run that one, rather than walk.
For now, I will be ok with walking, and hopefully not being dead last.

Which means, I need to start walking more.
I am canceling my gym membership to save some money, and because I haven't been going.
I can walk outdoors.
Between work, and trying to get Cooper to the park, I just haven't made the time to go to the gym.

I am down 68 pounds.
Kinda stuck.
Need to lose more.
Meet my goals.
I think walk/running will help.
It's something I desire.
Start now!

Fill in the Blank Friday!

1.   Something that makes me a great friend is, that I really invest a lot of time and energy into my friends.  I am a great listener and would do anything for anyone.  I also don't like to be overwhelming.

2.  I am  a mess right now.  I am trying to figure out my life, balance.  peace.  happiness.  harmony.  I will get there.  Hopefully soon.

3.  I am not   one to open up to people freely.  I don't want to make my problems your problems.  Too many people do that to me, so I don't want to do that to others.

4.  If I had to describe myself in 3 words, they would be   accommodating, helpful, friendly.

5.  Something I'm really cheap about is  clothing right now.  Since I am changing sizes, there is no use in paying a lot for something that won't fit in a month or so.

6.  Something I'm willing to splurge on is most things :(  but I make myself  think about my bigger than $100 purchases for at least 2 weeks to make sure its something I really want.

7.  I would trade  my beautiful new home in my hometown  for a smaller home in a beach town in a heartbeat.
