Wow, it's been a little while (cough) since I've blogged or even been on SP at all. I've been very lax in my exercising, and getting more and more lax in my food choices.
My weight has been maintaining the mid 140's, but my fitness is sorely lacking, and it's my own fault. This week, that has begun to change. I'm ready and motivated to work out regularly, I have two races at the end of the summer that will require more than the ability to run 3 miles (Spartan and Warrior), and I need to start preparing NOW.
Today I was watching some of Zuzana Light's videos, a ZWOW and some of her tips and food things. In one of her videos, she talks about how we have to motivate ourselves, and what we can do to help that along. One thing she really stressed was to write down the benefits to these changes we're making. WHY is it a good thing to work out daily? WHY is it a good thing to eat a certain way? We need these reminders so we can stick to it!
So, with that...
Benefits of exercising daily:
Happy - endorphins!
Better outlook on everything - perspective
Benefits of eating clean:
Stomach feels better
Fat I'm carrying will get burned
Cheaper than junk
Hmmmmm, several of those benefits overlap.
Stick to it, Sparkers!
