Stress ... Stress ... Stress

Ok so I haven't started working out yet. I hadn't been feeling well but I'm ok now. =) I'm thinking of starting off slow just so I don't sike myself out. Like I said before I want to train for a 5K race. Unfortunately I'm a sprinter. I have no idea if I can last that long. But I know I will be so proud of myself if I achieve this goal (I will post my goals in the sidebar) The race in my town will probably start in mid August. Is that too short of a time period for me to get into shape? I've read other blogs where people are training now for races that are in October and November. Anyway I saw this workout plan from for beginners. Heres what it says:

This is a 6-week program that designed to prepare you for your first race with minimal training. This program will allow you comfortably finish a 5K. It is not intended to run a fast 5K or to improve your speed. You should be able to run comfortably for 2 miles before starting this program.

  Hopefully it works for me! But in the meantime I want to start working out at home (yoga etc.) and at my apartment complex's gym. I mainly need to work out my abs. My eating habits have fluctuated dramatically. Some days I barely eat and others I eat all day. I've been stressed lately about everything. Let's just say one of my problems has to deal with my "only child syndrome" as I call it. I want to be in control of everything and I wish everyone had the same mind set that I do. People constantly take advantage of me, of what I have, and what I can do for them, like they're entitled to these things. Even those who are supposed to be your friends. I feel like my only cure is to move to Florida where my family is. But I'm stuck here for at least another 18 months. Right now I'm getting my stuff ready so I can move to another apartment. I just have to think "happier days are in the future".

Oh and I wanted to show you some photos of me when I was my goal weight. Sure I was a teenager but I still had problems with my body then. Hopefully I don't have those problems WHEN I do loose the weight. And these are in no particular order.

2 barbys talk about this:


Good luck, I know that you can do it.


Thanks! =)
