Somehow, I don't remember exercise being so tiring. I've been pretty sedentary the last several months and gained 40 lbs and I know better :(, I really do. But at the first of the year, I decided to go back to Weight Watchers and do something about it (again). I'm so tired of this yo-yo with my weight. Sometimes it feels like no one else understands, and I know they do. I've been pretty good at staying under or at my WW point level for the day. Recently I took up the habit of walking again. This is a difficult task for the unmotivated Oregonian. Lack of motivation is hard enough on it's own, but pair that up with typical Oregon winter weather and it's really hard to get going.
Well I am going slowly. I joined a Spark Team that is making a trek across the US and I'm a whole 8 miles into it.
I've been trying to get into jogging, but I'm so far out of shape that I'm lucky to got 3 blocks right now so I've been jogging 2 and walking 1, jogging 2 and walking 1. I average doing that for about 1.7 miles a day and do it in about 25 minutes.
I know it's no 5k or marathon like I see so many Spark users doing, but all journeys must begin somewhere.
I'm thinking I'll sleep pretty good tonight since I'm so tired from this new routine.
So that's really about all I have to say. I'd love to say something profound or that changes someone else's life but that's just not where I am today :)
