A little me time...

In recents posts I have blogged about how I don't know who I am anymore, with a husband, 3 MSC, and a new business I'm starting up I am just busy! I don't(didn't) give myself any "me" time...I guess I thought I didn't deserve it....Now I know(or at least I believe) that I was going through post pardom depresion. I can tell ya one thing, it ain't purdy!! I am slowly trying to get over that...I haven't seen a doctor, just trying to pray and have faith in God that he will pull me though....

So I decided that I neded to do something about my "me" time! I must put in this disclaimer first...I am not a runner!! I never have been. Even though when I was younger I played soccer, softball, and ran cross country.....But as I got older and in High School I was a cheerleader, and didn't exercise much! Granted I weighed barely a 100lbs and had great metabolism!!(HA! That slowed when I went to college, and worse after having 3 kids!) So I had heard of this program on twitter called couch potatoe to 5k. I thought, that's me!!! I checked it out and it seemed very easy..HA! I could barely run for 90 sec. straight!! Well for some reason for the first time in my life I have actually stuck with a workout program.I am on week 6!!! Last night I ran for 2 1/4 miles without stopping! I would never have guessed that my body would do that....and here's the kicker........I actually enjoy it!! I look forward to my runs now, and am happy that I am doing something for "me" .

It is also nice that I have a great support system in my husband. He is training for his first full marathon!! He is up to running 15 miles this week!! He has run two Half marathons before and really wants to accomplish a full one!! I am so proud of him!!

What do you do for YOURself??? Anything I should try?
peace out,

YAY for you!! Way to go and every woman NEEDS some "me" time without feeling guilty about it!
Maybe next summer we can do a 5k together since we are close enough : )!
