Back to Fakin' It!

I started running January 1st. Not really as a resolution, but more as just something I enjoyed once-upon-a-time and wanted to see if I still enjoy it.

Turns out I do.

Well, sorta. It's more a love/hate thing, or maybe even obsession at this point. But no matter. The great thing is that after 3 weeks of running after 3 years of not running, I'm back to the "fake it" stage of being fit and trim.


See, about a year ago, there was a meeting for all Primary teachers (it's the "Sunday School" for little kids in our Church). I was a teacher at the time, so I was at the meeting. As I sat down in a group of my peers, I realized for the first time that I could no longer suck my gut in and fake being trim in the middle.

The inner tube prevailed.

And it grew.

Soon I had reached a point where I could no longer fake it, even standing up. The tummy was visible at all times, in all clothes, no matter how forcefully I tried to suck it in.

I am happy to report that I am, in most of my clothes, back to the "fake it" stage. At least while standing up. And maybe by the first official day of Spring, I'll be able to fake it while sitting down. Just maybe.

Goal: by my 40th birthday party (December 9, 2009), I will not have to fake it at all.

You're all invited, by the way!
