I have been sleeping well these past few nights. The reason is because I have started to jog again. I jog about 3 kilometers everyday and the endorphin is just flowing!

I have gained more than 10 pound since I quit smoking about 8 months ago. The evil that is blogging also added to the weight problem. The many hours spent in front of the monitor - typing, reading, browsing, sitting - took its toll in the form of 10 unwanted pounds. What made me take up jogging again? First, as I do not have time to go to the gym, what better way to exercise? Jogging is free, fun, and time flexible. Second, I find it hard sleeping at night. Third, I entered a 5K race for tomorrow.

Yes. I, who have not jogged for so long, entered a 5K run. What made me do it? Daughter #4 texted me a week ago asking if I want to join their school-sponsored run. Knowing full well that I am not fit to join such event I said YES! Now, why did I? Well, I know I was getting heavier by the day and no amount of self-ridicule could make me lift my butt off my computer chair. Entering this run forced me to jog to at least loosen my flabby muscles.

Tomorrow’s run is set at 6:00 A.M. Registration is not later than 5:30 A.M. That means I have to be up and about and raring to run by 4:00 A.M. What?! Somebody, please wake me up!

  2. By the time you read this you're probably gearing up for the oh so fun 5K run of yours...or maybe you're done already...toink!

    Anyway, goodluck. I just read your message to me about the banana bread recipe. Nagkandarapa tuloy ako sa pag email after reading it. Daig pa yung 5k na run...haha. Sent it na....although I'm not sure if it's such a good idea now that you're wanting to get rid of the extra 10....
