Often in my life I've felt powerless to change things.  Powerless to change the perceptions others have of me, powerless to change my station in life.  Powerless to do a lot of things.  In the last couple years I've been underemployed, laid off, stagnated in my weight loss, and felt like I couldn't control any of it.  I've felt helpless and vulnerable.  I've felt like I wasn't ever going to amount to anything.  Most of all, I felt like nothing I did would ever change any of that.

I'm fed up.  I need to prove to myself I have the power to change my life.  Time to get up and go.  I don't need to eat as much as I do.  I can exercise harder, longer, and faster.  I can change my life. 

I'm going for a run.
