Yes, I actually did it!

Yes, I actually went out for a run yesterday after work.  At my new company, if you agree to have a health screening, you will receive a discount on your health insurance.  Well, I have been for a full medical 4 years ago, and the results were excellent.  They were so good, that I have been dreading going back because I know that I have been a bad girl - no exercise, eating junk, and just being lazy about my health. 

Anyway, I decided to go, and know the worse.  I was shocked and so happy at the outcome.  Even with doing nothing, the results were decent.  They were not at the 2008 levels, but the important thing is, they were not bad.  After being so laissez-faire with my health, I consider myself to be so, so lucky, and I am so thankful.  I was told that to get back to my 2008 levels, all I need to do is cardiovascular exercise - i.e. run again.  How hard can that be?  So I went out for a run, with my gratitude overflowing.......what is there not to be happy about.  And yes, now I am feeling motivated.  Watch this space!
