  1. I had always hated running. I've often told people if they words you ever see me running that they too should follow in suit & it could only mean one thing; Zombie Apocalypse. I also made mention that if my body were to ever be discovered on the jogging trail, one could be confident knowing that my body was drug to the location because I personally would not be there for leisure. Fast forward to 2013, a murdered friend, one nervouse breakdown, & one good look at a family photo & realized I looked like I had eaten a small child and was still in the process of digesting it. Had an epiphany while walking the Golden Gate Bridge with a friend & the next day started one block walking, one block jogging for the next week. One week later I returned to the Golden gate Bridge and Ran it the following week. It was the most excillerating experience I had ever had. 4 months & many miles later I lost 45lbs & was in the best shape of my life. Fast forward two years; I move to Fargo North Dakota from California. With a windchill my first Winter was -20 to -50. No sun, no socialization other than the drinking that takes place at small street fairs, SAD kicked in & I gained 35lbs over 7 months from inactivity. I just found this app two days ago which is perfect timing since I JUST quit smoking. Seems like the only thing that is helping me get through the anxiety and nervousness of the withdrawals is running.... And I hate running. I just hate the withdrawals & the feeling of not having any control while I am going through hell even more. Taking my life back one mile at a time, and who knows, maybe I'll like running, someday. Right now I finished w1d2 & can hardly breathe and it feels quite amazing actually. I'm actually looking forward to tomorrow. So those of you hard cores out there.... Any advice would be great for once I ready to brave the Fargo temps of -9 to -20 once I get my big girl panties on and step off the treadmill into the real world
  2. Well, looks like none of us are alone. I gained 35lbs after a major life change/move & really need to take my life back. I've had excuses for too long & have seen zero results so now it's time to take control & responsibility. Quit smoking 4 days ago, on w1d2. Looking forward to being the best me that can be... for myself & for my six children & my partner. Here's to 2015 & crushing out excuses & getting out of our own way to take hold of the life we were meant to live! Xoxo
