Remember way back when I was a serious runner? And then I moved home, transferred schools, got bronchitis and completely fell off the wagon? Yeah…that was terrible. So I’m starting over. Anyone care to join? No need to be embarrassed by how out of shape you are, or how slow you are, or how fat you feel. You’ll never feel better about any of that until you start. And if you give it your all, you will succeed. Trust me. I was that girl who couldn’t even run for 2 minutes in the park. A few months later, I was training for a half marathon. And a few months after that, I finished one.
Not a runner? That’s fine. Grab your bike. Or a tennis racket. Buy a 6 month pass to your favorite yoga studio. Just find something that you love that will challenge you and stick with it. You may lose weight. You may not. But I guarantee you, you’ll feel better. And the rest really comes from that.
