Let the work out begin!

UH-OH!! I mean a big ol' uh oh! I have been wanting to run a half marathon for quite some time now and I even began training for one last winter only to back out of it (after registering of course,) at the last minute. One of my (early) New Year's resolutions for 2010 is to complete a half marathon. It's going to take a lot, considering I have not even set foot in a gym in over 2 months and lets just say things have gotten pretty ugly since then. So my friend Heather and I have set up a work out regiment for the next 2 weeks to get our little (or not so little) botty's in shape. Tonight is our cardio night and it should be very interesting. Hopefully I don't have a mishap on the treadmill like W did back in nursing school where she was so mortified she could never set foot in the school gym ever again. Condisering I will be using my gym at my apartment building I really hope I don't fall and then have to face all of the other tenants for the duration of my living there. :( No good!! Anyway, if all goes well I am hoping to run the country music half marathon in Nashville with some great friends in March. Everyone keep your fingers crossed I make it through the next 2 weeks and then perhaps I can look more into the furture. So here is to no longer looking like this:

And hopefully looking a little more like this!
By the way, it is supposed to be in the 70's here today and tomorrow. We are finally getting the fall we never had, whooo hoooo!!! Happy almost Friday everyone!
