I have been really motivated for the past week, something in me has just changed. I have printed a photo of myself that I can't stand looking at cause I look fat in it. I pass by it everyday and give myself the motivation I need to go to the gym because I don't want to look like that again.
Well yesterday I was talking to my husband telling him I feel like running, but I don't want to injure myself, like my knees or my foot (had problems before). Then I told him maybe it's just an excuse I keep giving myself so I don't run. Plus, mentally I had that image in my head of all my jiggly parts flapping around in the air as I jogged. So today when I was on the treadmill I was up to 10 minutes, then I started to do it, I was jogging. I pushed my mind to just do it. I cranked up the treadmill where I could get a good jog in and I jogged for a full minute! I know a minute isn't much for people who are used to it, but I am taking baby steps. Gotta get my heart rate used to jogging like I did with walking. Baby steps. So, with my heart rate now up at 190 I slowed it down a bit and continued with a steady walk. Again, proud that I even did it, at 15minutes I started jogging again for a minute and then walked. I did this 3 more times during the hour I was on the treadmill. My heart rate stayed up the rest of the time till I tried cooling down.
So proud of todays accomplishment I just had to blog about it. Hopefully I will inspire someone out there to just do it. You need to over power your mind of its negative and unpersuasive thoughts. AND, who cares what other people may think of all your jiggly parts, at least your their in the gym doing the do to get rid of the jiggly.
PS. Know your limits!
