I hope you’re not sick of me talking about Hands 2 Haiti. When our kids are involved in something we will sit in the scorching heat during endless hours of baseball practice.  We will sit in the pouring rain for football games, and we will drive hours for competitions.   When my boy shows passion about…

There’s a skinny runner hidden in me…

…and apparently I’ve eaten her.  BUT I’m on track to dig her out and set her free.  No, seriously I haven’t eaten anyone, but I am convinced that in this new season of my life I am striving to be something i’ve never been before: a runner.  I have so many friends on Facebook who have never been runners before and in their late 30’s to mid 40’s have embarked on a new found hobby of running.  A couple of old co-workers, a cousin, someone I went to church with…all women were not runners before and now are.  I want to join that club.  Now granted, I’ve ran in a 5k and walked a couple, but that hardly grants me membership to the runner’s club.  J and I are 4 weeks into the Couch to 5k app and I’m sticking with it.  I been on Weight Watchers for about 3 weeks now and have had minimal results.  We are still doing Paleo and staying away from what most Americans eat.  I just want to do it right, you know?  I want to be healthy.  I want to live a long time.  I don’t want my bones to crumble and need replaced.  I want to be able to play with my kids, be a healthy example for my girls on a healthy body image and a healthy example for my boys in what they should see when they date girls.  
I don’t want a diet.  
I want a healthy lifestyle.  
I’m going to stick with it.
