Inspirational Quotes :)

I just got done watching last weeks episode of The Biggest Loser. I don't watch much TV, but that is one of my shows. :) I find the show so inspirational. I am in a constant struggle to live a more healthy lifestyle. I would like to lose 10lbs, not for looks, but to better my health. I KNOW that would help lower my cholesterol. While I go to the gym and workout fairly regularly, my problem is my passionate love affair with food. Ah, food. Most of my favorite foods are the ones that are not healthy for me. I need to retrain my taste buds to love the healthier options. Anyways, watching Biggest Loser tonight, I was yet again inspired. During this episode the 4 finalists were competing in a marathon. That's 26.2 MILES. WOW! The fact that these people, some that were 400lbs 3 months ago, can push their bodies to do that, AMAZES me. I have been wanting to start running now for about 2 years. Yes, I know that is  a long time. I reallyreally want to run a 5k one day (soon). I WALK 5k's ALL the time, so I got this. I know I can do it. I just will have to push my body really hard. I worry because I pretty bad back, and my chest gets tight when I run from my asthma, but it is my goal to start training for this soon. I have been hoping for an Ipod for Christmas. This could jump start my training. I plan to use the From Couch to 5k  website to help me figure this all out. My fiance started running in October, and he actually ran 9 miles straight about 6 weeks into his training. His running really does inspire me. :)

I figured I'd use this blog to leave some inspirational quotes I found today while googling:
  • I am only one,
    But still I am one.
    I cannot do everything,
    But still I can do something;
    And because I cannot do everything
    I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
