Decide What To Be...

And Go Be It.

I saw this saying on Facebook today.  It fits with my thoughts lately.

I watched one of my best friends finish her first half marathon yesterday.  I want to do that again (I did a full marathon and a half marathon back in 2003).

Another friend posted on Facebook this weekend about her weight loss.  I want to lose weight.  I'm tired of my hips aching, my knees aching, my ankles aching.

So what am I going to do about this?  Well, today I tracked what I ate.  I went for a walk around the block mid-afternoon.

It's a start.  And tomorrow the plan is to track what I eat, and take another walk.  Maybe a little further this time.

And if I keep doing this, I can build a foundation to train next year.

And next year, I'll be crossing the finish line.  I've decided that next year I'll be a finisher.  So now I'll work to be it.



  1. I'm starting a diet too. I found a great way to track what I eat and it's free:) Plus it has Canadian food options which is something you don't usually find.

  2. I admire your resolve! If I could just stop finding new excuses why I can't, maybe I could! Gorgeous photos today! And people think Sask is all flat and yellow (even in winter when its white!)
