Health obsession...for the moment!

Today I walked/ran a 5k to see what my starting point is...40:41. That should leave some room for improvement! Gotta start somewhere.
I have been busy trying to eat healthy. I had no idea it would be so time consuming! A friend of mine talked me into entering a contest at the gym for muscle gain. Yes, I know, a little crazy. I have no muscle, and no motivation. I have accepted that in my life, and was really okay with it...until now. I always thought I fed my family pretty healthy stuff, no processed food, we don't do fast food, we eat fresh vegetables, etc. Apparently I had no idea! I have been tracking food and reading labels...completely new to me. Oh my goodness. I can't believe what I have been eating. Anyway, this change is taking sometime to get used to, and I do mean TIME. I plan out what food I eat everday to make sure I am getting what my body needs to build muscle. It is all very interesting, and I have learned so much. The link Join TeAm Healthy on the side is some stuff about how things are going, what we (TeAm) are eating, etc. Anyway, I am liking the results I can see from this obsession, and can't wait to see some real numbers when I go in for my half way point consultation on Saturday.

Someday I want to be motivated like you. Maybe I can find some drive to lose baby weight in a few months.
