Promise less or do more

It's about time I started taking a little more care of myself. I always try to look my best but it's easy to let exercise slip when you have other things to do. I'm guilty of getting home after work, doing some more work and then sitting infront of the tv for the rest of the night. I don't eat particularly badly but I certainly don't exercise enough. I avoid carbs as much as I can, mostly because wheat and gluten don't agree with me. You wouldn't believe how many things have gluten in them! I normally eat fruit, vegetables and plenty of meat and have been at the same weight for years but I want to get fit. I want to be able to run a few miles without feeling like I'm about to die. I'll admit that I may have been spurred on by the fact that someone recently decided to tell me I am 'wide'. I haven't been called anything like that since I was a teenager and I'm damned if that's the way I'm going to be viewed. Pretty sure that a size 10/12 isn't wide! Don't get me started on the way that the idea of 'beauty' is constructed by the media. Anyway, I'm more interested in being fit and healthy so that's my plan!

Tonight I'm going to start running. Even if it rains. The reason I'm writing this on my blog is because once you have said something publicly, you have to do it. As always, Pinterest has helped motivate me with some brilliantly cheesy slogans. Here's what's going to get me through my run/jog/breakdown later tonight:

Off I go. Wish me luck.
