It’s official. I am a fat, lazy, out of shape American. I haven’t really done too much physical activity since we moved to San Antonio. Before we moved, I was going to tae kwon do a couple of times a week and I slimmed down quite a bit. I even went to a special Tuff Girls class for a while and toned up even more. But now I am so out of shape it’s not even funny. I’ve been trying to motivate myself to get up off my rump and do something about it. I just haven’t really found the motivation or inspiration that I needed. Until now!
I’ve read several things about a 5K called Color Me Rad. I’ve even seen a few of my friends on Facebook post after they have participated in, and finished, this particular 5K. I’ve been a little jealous. Come to find out, there’s a Color Me Rad 5K here in San Antonio at the end of June! So guess who is going to start training tomorrow for it? That’s right! This chick right here!! Oh, yeah! It’s going to be weeks and weeks of hard grueling make me want to fall down dead work, but it will be so worth it to cross that finish line!
Tomorrow, before I start training, I will take a Before picture (because I know that along this journey I will tone up and slim down and look better than I have in years!), although I won’t be posting it for a while. Not until I have a nice little After picture to post right along side it.
I will be making a new Category here on the blog for my personal training/toning/weightloss/whatever you want to call it journey. This will be the first of SEVERAL posts (most of them probably whining about how much it hurts and how I just want to quit) that will go there. I hope you enjoy this journey with me. Hell, jump in and start your own! You never know, one day that ONE 5K that you just can’t pass up could be coming to your town soon. Get ready for it!
