I don't like exercise but I like to get outdoors
I don't like exercise but I like the way it makes me feel afterwards
I don't like exercise because I am fat and it hurts!
I don't think I have ever made a NY's resolution in my life (or not that I remember), and I am not going to break with that for fear of getting to December and feeling a big failure...
Having said that, yesterday I went for a run...and you know what - it HURT!! (Big surprise there huh!)
But you know what else? For the first time in quite a while - I felt energized ALL DAY.

So today, I did it again.
Now I say run...any small child walking at a reasonable pace could have probably kept up with me - but hey (to steal a saying I also saw on Pinterest) I was still lapping everyone on the couch!!
Having confided in my sis (who already runs) what I did yesterday she pointed me in the direction of THIS SITE (it is actually the NHS site and a free set of podcasts to get you from the couch (no exercise) to running for 30 mins (about 5k) in 9 weeks!
I have begun the Couch to 5k with the intention of RUNNING my first Race for Life this year. I have walked them in the past, but this year I want to RUN it.
Happy New Year everyone... x
