Two Goals for the Big 30

I have been debating putting this out there but here it goes…
I have been thinking about turning the big 30 in November.  I know it is a ways off but it’s been weighing heavily on my mind. 
I’m not really concerned that much about success or where I am in my career.  I feel like I am doing alright on that front.  Of course, I would love to be better paid, but I am in a management level position and I do have my own office.  So I have that going for me.   
Mostly, what I am concerned with is my level of fitness.  I’m not huge, but I am bigger and more out of shape than I ever thought I would be.  I would like to do something about it, but each time I start something I end up giving up.  I think my problem is that I want to immediately go from 0 to 60 mph.  It’s too much too fast. 
There are two simple things I’d like to start doing.  I’d like to start running in the morning and I’d like to start bringing a healthy lunch to work.
The problem with running is that I will have to get up earlier in the morning than I already do. And, I get up pretty early.  Running at night really isn’t an option for several reasons, so it has to be the morning.  I’m just not sure getting up at 5:30 AM is a very realistic goal. I guess I’ll have to try it though. 
Taking a healthy lunch to work is something that should be a little easier.  I just have to make a commitment to go grocery shopping on a regular basis. It’s really easy to use the excuse that there isn’t any food in the house so I’ll need to make sure I’m prepared for that.
Anyway, those are my two simple goals for now.  And, now that it’s out there I’m going to have to actually follow through.  My hope is that I can start some healthy habits to carry forward into my 30s.
