That's what I kept telling myself as I was jogging on treadmill tonight. TRUE CONFESSION... I haven't done any jogging at all since the Turkey Trot. I haven't done anything but ONE 6 mile walk... in 2 1/2 weeks... so pathetic.
Well, tonight was a bit of an eye opener... I struggled with every at step. I still completed 3 miles in 38 minutes, but I felt like I was going to D. I. E. There are no excuses for my lack of activity, I just haven't done anything.
I'm doing a Dirty Girl run in June and The Biggest Loser is going to be here in August and I'm doing a 5k with them. I was doing a 5k 3-4 times a week to prepare for the Turkey Trot, and if I want to do well at these upcoming events I need to get back to it. I felt great when I was working out like that, and the scale started moving in the right direction because of it.
If I want to keep my new lifestyle, I need to work at it.
