Pell Bridge Run

I need to take my rant somewhere so hold on.
16 weeks ago I decided to cut all sugar and flour products out of my diet. I did it because I was tired of the roller coaster of emotions, health and weight. I was carb angry and the guilt after I yelled in a rage at the kids was more than I could handle. I was addicted and put myself on a roller coaster of drag ass versus caffeine that this body did not deserve.
Once I got a decent handle on the food I thought you should exercise, so I walked. Then I took the leap of starting the Couch to 5K after running the Falmouth Road Race in August without 1 training day. Not smart but it was the catapult I needed. This week I should be doing the 8th and final week of the Couch to 5K program. I ran 2 days ago for 25 minutes straight.
I like challenge and goals that no one else has done. I can't get caught up in comparing myself to you if I am the only one doing it. So this race was my goal, my end result but really just the beginning. I want to keep the food choices going as my lifestyle. I would love to add weights as I have always strength. I force myself to run hills and I hiked like a wild woman with the thought in my head I was making myself strong.
I am sure a lot of people don't want to hear it for their own reasons but I am so excited I could burst. I have succeeded and I haven't even run it yet. I met my weight loss goal and I am all signed up. I can't fail at this point.
What an amazing feeling.
