I did it

I entered!

Spartan Race

I've always loved physical challenges. I ran a couple of half marathons, I did Ottawa's version of the amazing race, I've done various Boot Camps, and a couple of other little races here and there. Whenever I see someone doing something very physically challenging, I'm always envious. I want to be doing what they are doing. I love pushing myself, doing something I never thought I would be able to, I like seeing what I'm actually capable of.

So when a girl I had met in Jamaica last year set me this link, I knew I had to do it.

As sad as it is to admit this, I too often let my weight interfere with the things I want to do in life. I worry too much what other people will think of me.

This time next year I won't be the weight that I am right now. I will be a smaller healthier happier version of me.

I'm on my way there now, and it's starting to feel really good.

I'm catching up on your posts.

1) way to go on the race
2) I love your necklace. You are a super mom!
3) I looooooooove your back splash. We're going to be getting our kitchen reno'ed in a couple of months... and adding a new splash is on my list in addition to adding new cabinets. Where did you find such a back splash?

Amy said...

oh.. and I also love that cabinet in your dining room. Like a lot.

Thanks ladies! I'm nervous, excited and even more excited! Doing this with a whole bunch of people I don't know always scares me - BUT, it's one of those situations after I do it, I'm so happy that I did? Putting myself out there isn't always easy.

Amy - I got the backsplash at Olympia Tiles. I have a few left (they are put up in sheets) that I would be MORE than happy to drop off so you can put it up in the kitchen (lean it against the wall) and see what it does for you :)
