le démarrage

le démarrage

I don’t want to make any big momentus announcement.  I just want to start again … at the beginning.    So when 2013 is over, I will be able to look back and feel like I made progress.  I will remember it fondly.  Ahhh, 2013 ….yea, that was a good year.    April is as good a month as any for le démarrage!!!!


LOL, so you know me.  I function best when I put myself on a schedule.  I’m a slave to where/when/what/how/and why.  Oh well.  I’ve surrendered to it!   C’est la vie  🙂

Yea, I don’t know how long it will take for my love affair with France to wear off…..but trust me, my vocabulary is small…so it won’t be too too long, mon petit!

Anyway, back to le démarrage!  So I made myself a new training schedule and pinned it to the kitchen message board.    Already I’m feeling better.  Centered.  Ready.  Ready for le démarrage.   To ensure Ive shaken boredom out of the system, I’m shaking it up a bit.  I’ve changed my rest days to Monday and Friday, plotted a brand new running course, added in my Zumba day on Thursday and want to get a spin class in there somewhere, but it might be too much — we will see.

I have a plan for a race, and mon ami…..it’s a good one!  Oooh la la!  A really really good one.  it makes me smile from ear to ear just thinking about it. B -u – t-… I’m not going to tell you until tomorrow.  No no,  you will have to wait just a little bit.    Oh, you wanna guess?  Go ahead …you can guess.   I Dumbo Double Dare you!


Ciao for now….Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
