A major accomplishment!!

Last spring I began running, slowly working my way up to 42 minutes non-stop. I ran all summer, got down to my lowest weight since I was 14, and absolutely dreaded every run. I had decided that I would rather walk an extra 20 minutes than ever run again. Looking at success stories is really motivating, however, most of those stories include that aweful word "run"!! I know it is 80 % what you eat and 20% what you do for exercise. Knowing this, I also know that I have quite a bit of "jiggly" going on still in the belly and back side, and I know the only way that is going to go away is with cardio, cardio, and more cardio. I've reached such a level in my walking and weight/cardio workouts that I am afraid it's not coming off nearly as fast as I'd like, I gotta' step it up...aka...run...ugh!! I just finished my workout for today, all cardio...5 min walk/10 min run, 5 min walk/10 min run, 5 min walk/10 min run, and finished with 15 minutes of walking. 30 minutes of running, 30 walking...that's an awesome 60 minutes of pure cardio...and it didn't kill me...but, I still didn't like it!!
