Heyroo all!

I think I've got it now. I need to either plan my meals better, or tell my parents 'No' when they want to eat out, and how I don't want to join them.

If I am really serious about losing weight and such, I need to get my act together.

Lean Cuisine's are my staple. Those and Lean Pockets. Lunch and dinner.

Breakfast will be oatmeal and such. Either that or apples and cottage cheese. I want to vary some things of course, but this is my go to. I also need to find low calorie bread, so I can have turkey and cheese sandwiches.

If I am going to succeed, I have to take measures that will ensure my success. I just need to buckle down, and tell myself:

'Hey, it needs to be this way. Either this or surgery, and still no self control. If that is the case, you will still have to lose with me in your corner. So, which is it going to be, because all you are doing is waiting for something that may never happen.'

That's a tough thing to admit. Getting going is hard. Keeping to it is even harder, and succeeding in it is worth it. Running across that 5K line is worth it. Heartache and dreams, and I need to work at it.

I want to be able to run a half marathon with a respectable time, so I've gotta work at it. Walking and weight training is what goes first. Speed walking and jogging second. Running and intervals third. 5K, fourth. More interval work and speed training, fifth. 10K, sixth. Even more speed and endurance work, half marathon.

And they all start with a single step.

Am I willing to take the time to achieve my dream, or will I just let it go like a whole lot of other ones I have had...?

'Sure it's going to hurt. Injuries will come, and it will suck alot of your drive out of you. But imagine the exhilaration of crossing that finish line, and how proud your family will be of you.

Don't you want that? To succeed?'

I know... I have the motivation, but all I want to do is 'get the diet right, the rest will follow'. Exercising is hard. It will hurt. Maybe that's what I am afraid of. Maybe it's the diet that's not the problem, but getting up and going. The runnersworld.com diet that I was on had me working out from day one. I need to restart that. Cardio three times a week, with weight training on alternating days. It can be done, I've done it before. What is stopping me now is self-doubt. 'Do you really want this? I mean REALLY want this?' It's the self doubt that is the killer.

I know this may sound harsh, but stop whining and get moving. A little pain and soreness has never killed anyone. You did it once now do it again, the only this time make it a permanent lifestyle change. You can do it. You are the only one in your way.
