Completed January Jumpstart Workout Challenge - WOOHOO!

Saturday, January 28, 2012

Lost 1.6 lbs total despite the scale going the wrong way on the last two weigh-ins. I have decided not to focus so much on the scale for a while. I will focus instead on steadily building my fitness level by running as often and as strongly as I can and by making sure that exercise is a part of every day, even if it's only 10 minutes. I will also get back into the ST habit that I have gotten out of while getting started as a runner.

Lately, I have been hearing the voice of Dorie (from "Finding Nemo") in my head while running. Instead of saying, "Just keep swimming!", she's saying "Just keep running!" I am starting to learn that a lot of the struggle with running is a mental struggle. Yes, my body does get tired and I get out of breath, but I just have to keep my head in the game. I CAN keep running if I can get past the idea that I can't. It's a slow run and I'll never win any races, but I CAN do it. There may be people walking faster than I can run, but I CAN keep running even if they leave me in the dust.

Whatever challenges you are facing in your journey to health and fitness, there is a way to meet your goals. You CAN do this thing and you CAN be the better, stronger person you are trying to be.
