the time has come

i've been joking about "operation wedding dress" but haven't really gotten too serious about it yet.  but now i finally took a few key steps to get myself jump started. 

1. signed up for the NY marathon 2010 
  • what am i NUTS?  don't i remember the pain my body was in from the 2008 marathon?  yes, but i doubt i'll get in the lottery anyways, and it's the best way for me to start running for the chance that i might actually make it in.  besides, i signed up for a 1/2 marathon in july so i need to get going for that anyways. 
2. signed up with a personal trainer 
  • this guy actually trains people from the gym downstairs from our apartment and charges only a fraction of the cost the trainers at the gym would charge.  i am going to meet with him 3x week for a month and see if i can notice any difference
that part is tonight - and you could say i am pretty nervous.  i am feeling so beyond being out of shape right now it's not even funny.  i go to the gym and i don't even know where to start anymore - i hate running on the treadmill, i feel like a hamster in a wheel, and i don't know which machines to use on which days, etc.  so i need a kick-start back to the fitness regime i used to be familiar with.

wish me luck!
