Little FAT Me

I work full time and I barely have time to breathe. In 2005 hurricane Katrina rearranged my life, since then I have gained roughly 80-90 pounds. I believe that it started in depression and became an addiction. I have started and failed many diets and then decided that MAYBE if I combine diet and exercise with blogging and shopping I might be able to find success. This is the story of 2010 and my struggle to rise above addiction, pain, depression and fat.

How to walk/run a 5k

On November 23, 2010 I turned 30 and went to the gym for the
first time in my life. I also JOGGED for the first time. I had been working out
at home and I had no idea I had conditioned myself to the point where I could jog!
At that point I fell in love with running and I joined the gym so I could run
three times a week, about a week later I decided I wanted to walk/run a 5K in
the next year. Well, I live in New Orleans and in January someone was talking
about the Crescent City Classic, a 10K road race that takes place in April. I
was game! In February I got a friend to agree to do it with me and we trained
at the gym (her in a city about two hours away) and kept each other up dated.

As the day came I researched hydration and eating and went
it as well prepared as I could have been! It was one of the most awesome things
I have ever done! I finished in one hour and twenty-six minutes. My original
goal was two hours; my updated goal had been an hour and a half. Both were
blown away! I have a 5K in May and I plan on doing MANY more!

It took me 5 months.

It made me amazed!
