As I've said many times in many posts, I started this joyful jogging journey on March 14, 2011.  I was hopeful and prayerful that it would prove to be a form of exercise that could be enjoyable and sustainable!

 I wanted it to be the answer to shredding that last 10 pounds (and it did).  I wanted it to feel good (and it does).  I wanted it to be fun but challenging (and it has been).  I wanted to set a good example of healthy living for my children (and I have).  I wanted my husband to look at me and feel proud (and he does)!

Yes, I have run off pounds, inches and fat.  I have developed muscles in my legs that I have never seen before.  My cardiovascular health is such that I have cut my blood pressure pill in half!  Still, nothing compares to how many pounds of GUILT I have run off in these past almost-7 months!  I am fulling my exercise responsibility.  I am taking care of the body that God gave me.  I am strong and healthy and vital.  I don't have to "feel bad" anymore.  I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing!  Are you doing what you're supposed to be doing?

Gotta Run!
