Baby’s First Steps

I don’t make New Years resolutions.

I think 12 months is an incredibly unrealistic time period in which to complete a goal. I have always been a procrastinator, so I have to force myself to set attainable goals. I feel like this is a skill that they should teach in school, because I could have benefitted greatly from knowing how to set realistic goals without the failure that inevitably precedes experience.

So, it is after great consideration and personal examination that I announce my first goal of 2013…

I’m going to run a 5K in April.¬†

I’ve never been a runner, like, I have¬†never ever included running in the “things I want to do with my life” category, but I’m saying that I’m going to do it on here so I can’t go back on it. It should be interesting learning how to do this with the diabetes thing to contend with as well.

Please keep me in your thoughts as I take my first steps. It’s going to be interesting, I promise!
