a little gratitude

There's a lot rattling around my mind this morning, after scouting out some of my fave bloggers. I like to read a few blogs before posting my own, on most mornings. It sort of gets me "in the mood" so to speak lol.

I have a 5K to participate in next Saturday and I haven't been terribly consistent in my "training." I hadn't planned on "racing" and running. I just want to walk it mainly and jog when I can. I've just been busy in meetings and with the various things I do in my life. I guess that means I honestly haven't made this a priority. I've thought alot about it, lol. But, I am pretty sure that thinking doesn't get you in shape lol. At least it never has for me. I can say that I am so very tired of "fighting" myself when it comes to fitness and weight. Perhaps that means I am approaching a point of surrender and forward progress where this is all concerned. My mind knows this is really a "just do it" thing. My spirit struggles to want to "just do it."
