Amazing what a Little Exercise Can Do

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

So, I woke up feeling really kind of "bleh". I wouldn't say depressed. Just not "feeling it". I really don't even know why. I mean scale didn't move from YESTERDAY (lol), so it wasn't that. I got a good nights sleep. I had pleasant dreams. I have Karaoke to look forward to on Friday. It might have SOMETHING to do with Valentine's Day (boo) coming up and I don't have a date. I will probably be staying up snuggled up with a black dog and reading a book in my jammies, but I am okay with that. I just was kind of punk. But, I was not going to let it get to me. I got into my exercise clothes and went down to the gym. I jumped on the treadmill, I did my Body Pump and CXWorks, and I psychologically geared up to do C25K week FOUR day 1.

I always read what I am suppose to do for the program before I start it. This week really had me nervous. It is 5 minute warm up. 3 minutes running, 90 seconds walking, FIVE MINUTES RUNNING, 2.5 minutes walking, 3 minutes running, 90 seconds walking, FIVE MINUTES RUNNING and then cool down. That FIVE MINUTES RUNNING just got me all in a tizzy. I didn't think I would be able to do it. I was planning on just doing week 3 again, and again, and again until I felt ready. I told myself, no, that I promised to try new things an push myself. I did not let the fear get to me. I figured I could at least give it a go. So, started out, when it told me to run, I jogged real slow. It was a slow go, but I DID IT!!! I finished it!!!!! I completed week four day 1 and I LOVED IT. I was tired. I was panting, but I am no longer depressed. WOOHOO!!!!

    Congratulations! You have every right and reason to be proud of yourself, especially because you pushed passed the mood and just did what needed doing!
With that kind of determination, your goals are just a few steps away.
