Soooooo I'm gonna do it

Sunday, August 14, 2016

I had to go to rehab to get sober for a multitude of mind altering substances in Jan 2015. During my 4 week stay my mind cleared I got a serious look at what my life had become and how horribly I had abandoned everything that had once been so very important to me.. A lot of my experience was dealing with things that had happened to me and accepting my responsibility in most of them ( some things happen and we are not responsible in any way) the last week for me was goal setting. At that time I was slim due to the drug abuse and knew that being sober I would gain back all I lost. I set a goal of participating in a 5k. It was almost laughable to my close family since I was not an exerciser let alone someone to attempt to run. I gained a great big 60# over the course of a year and did nothing to stop it I honestly did really think about the goal I had set. Found spark at the beginning of may 2016 and have since lost 50# and adopted a whole new way of life. It has truly been amazing. Last weekend I found the 5 k I am going to run in!!!!! Its Oct 15th plenty of time to prepare. I am so excited I'm going to actually do it!!!!!
