From My Heart to Yours...

Given that Valentines Day is approaching and February is also heart month, it makes perfect sense to realize how important a functioning heart really is. (Heart Disease is the #1 killer of women)  So, it also made perfect sense to start taking better care of mine. Although I do my daily strength training, I am lazy about getting out for a walk or hopping the treadmill.  I needed a kick in the butt and by chance I got one from my friend Sara at http://emmysclosetbows.blogspot.com/2011/02/week-1-day-1.html
Laziness has turned into motivation and I have decided to train for a 5K.  I was never a runner and I may never be one but I want to train as one and I want my heart  to stay strong.
It will be an eight week program and I start on Monday- (but I was so psyched I actually did a mile this morning!)
So, yeah I'm off and running!  Wish me luck and hey- maybe this is contagious for you as it was for me.
Get off the couch and give yourself and your heart a hug!

Great job, Deb!! Let's keep each other up on our progress and anyone else that wants to join in too. We can all motivate each other! :)
