I have been really slacking with this boot camp challenge. I started with every intention of finishing. When I had a workout buddy, it made a huge difference. She would push me ( like sisters do) and I would do the same for her. But since her health is not the best she can't workout for now. So I am without a buddy and am left to push myself. I do and I don't push myself. I do push myself out of bed when I would much rather sleep that extra hour. I have pushed myself this week when today I ran a full mile for the first time ever!! High Five me!!.
Now though, I know most of my block is in my head, like my brother who is 3yrs older than me and runs 5 miles everyday tells me its all in your head. I truly believe that statement. I went out today and just did after building up doing a little more of a run etch day till I could run the full distance today. I want to do more though, but...I am old fashioned and need that proverbial kick in the pants to keep me on track.
I do enjoy Sparkpeople and the website is fun to visit. I do get too busy though and forget I need to visit everyday. Now that my daughter is all grown up I actually have a life, go figure! Anyway, I will put in for a Sparkbuddy with some muscle to "spark" me forward and I will do the same for her.
