I finished week 2 of the Couch 2 5K program! Woo hoo! One of the things that I always feel embarrassed about is my sweat. I hate looking all read and sweaty after working out. Some girls don't. So I feel self conscious. Today though I saw a girl that was drenched in sweat, and she didn't look a bit concerned with that fact. It made me think I needed to accept the sweat as part of what I'm doing! Don't sweat the sweat!!
I picked up a book yesterday called "Savor: Mindful Eating, Mindful Life" by Thich Nhat Hanh. Here's one quote that I find particularly meaningful: "Each moment we spend worrying about the future and regretting the past is a minute we miss in our appointment with life - a missed opportunity to engage life and to see that each moment gives us the chance to change for the better, to experience peace and joy" (page2)
