A New Goal Has Been Set

I went to my endocrinologist appointment this morning. I feared the worst, as I always do, and expected to get some harsh criticism for how my habits hadn’t been the best as of late. I was actually more surprised to hear things had roughly stayed the same. The only thing that changed is I was now challenged.

My doctor has challenged me to begin a more rigorous form of exercise: running/jogging! I haven’t run or jogged in a long time. I actually have lied in the past when I said I went running last year. I didn’t run; I didn’t even jog. I merely walked around the neighborhood a lot. I’m now being challenged to run or jog a mile at least once a week under 10 minutes by the end of next year (or as I challenged myself: the end of summer). I have roughly 12 months to accomplish this (at the earliest 10 months).

I’m not sure how well I’ll do or if I’ll even succeed, but it’s worth a try. I really want to prove to people I can do this; heck, I want to prove to myself I can do this. I am willing to try. I hope I can do this and not wind up in the hospital. I’m certain that I can make this and maybe even lose a little weight here and there! That’d be awesome! Just how far is a mile from my house? I wonder. I’ll have to measure that out one day. Until, then, I’ll just keep trying and hopefully I’ll write more in this blog, too!

Love and prayers, as always! ❤

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
