There are a couple of things that happened this last week that I feel are real progress.

First- on Wednesday, I wasn't able to get my run in during the late afternoon and the first chance I had to get to things was a bit after 7 pm.  Normally I would have said, never mind, missed it.  This week I didn't though.

Second, since it was dark outside, I didn't feel comfortable heading out by myself.  Instead, I grabbed a Leslie Sansone DVD and put it in, in the LIVING ROOM and did it with both DH and my DS#1 in the room.  Yep, an audience.  Truly, this is the thing I am most proud of.  It probably should be that I found an alternative and didn't miss the exercise, but it isn't, it is being willing to just do it with them there and not worrying how silly or uncoordinated I looked (am).

Third, Saturday I kicked out another 5 miles for my distance day.  Next week the distance day is 6 miles, and I know I can do it.  Not only did I do the 5, but I have more running intervals, and they were longer intervals than the week before.  I am finding that my legs and body can do it, it is my endurance that really needs the help.  Time and work and that will come too.

So- a little tip for anyone looking to make changes.  Find your support someplace.  Get something that encourages you, supports you 100% and refuses to let you quit.  That is often NOT family, but a friend, workout partner (love ya Betty) or a coach.  Whatever it is, FIND IT.  It will make all the difference in the world.
