I saw this on Pinterest and it really stuck with me. I've always got thoughts rolling around in my head of things I'd love to do, things I'm interested in, things I really want to learn about. But being a mama is all consuming and it's really just recently that I've tried to start doing some things for myself again. As a mom I often feel guilty for doing things for myself but there's a quote from the movie Jerry McGuire that I love...when the old man says to Jerry "You gotta get rid of that darn guilt". Really, my mind hangs on to the strangest things! My family is what's most important to me but I sometimes forget that that includes me too. So here's my list of things I'm going to work on accomplishing this year. For me!
4. Run a marathon (or half marathon) in the fall. It will be my first and I'm SO excited. I was planning to run one in April but quickly realized I was not willing to train in the cold..brrr. I'm not a huge fan of treadmills because I'm clumsy and I haven't worked out in a gym in oh, 10 years (yet another fear I need to face). But I love running outside; it clears my head and it's a rare moment of solitude. It is amazing how good I feel after a long sweaty run. I'm going to stick with it this time and I'm gonna do this!!!
