I have now been running for 5 months.  I’ve dropped my resting heart rate from the 90’s to the 60’s and I’ve lost 23 pounds.  I feel like I have so much energy now and all of this has been possible because of  a lifestyle change that includes healthy eating and exercise.

Here I am about 5 months ago at my best friend's wedding.

 

Although losing weight was not my top priority, it makes running 3 to 4 times a week in cold weather much easier when I see such an awesome change in my body.  Hey, what woman doesn’t like it when she can look at herself in the mirror and say “Momma looks good!”

The last leg of my first half marathon last weekend.

I plan on sharing these changes and a new-found love for running as my daily journey continues…
