Small Victory!!

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Today I was feeling sick and did not want to go to the gym but after talking to myself and my boyfriend I decided maybe going to the gym would make me feel a little better so I went to the gym with my niece.

I increased the incline as well as the speed and turned my music up. I wasn't running but I was walking pretty fast and enjoying the music. Before too long 20 minutes past and I was at 200 calories and 1 mile. Wow I reached a mile in less than 30 minutes!! That pushed me and after 45 minutes I completed 2 miles and burned 460 calories. Not to mention the last minute I decided to increase the speed to 4.5 I usually keep it between 2.0 and 3.0 but I said what the heck Bree go for it. I ran the last minute.

2 miles may not seem like a lot to some people but for me a person who barely can reach a mile that was a success! Running 1 full minute when I'm at a gym and people are constantly running was a small victory for me. I did it!!! I actually ran and use I was sweating and breathing heavy but isn't that what we should accomplish when doing a moderate workout? Well that's what the articles I've been reading have told me.

I am so proud of myself I ran a full minute the two miles is good as well but the running part is mind blowing to me. Next time I'll shoot for a minute and thirty seconds or at least another full minute.

Good job Bree you accomplished your first small victory! Here's to many more! In the comments share your small victories.

And remember do not quit! I have to keep telling myself this so quitting is never an option

    That's really great. Succcess comes one small victory at a time. My small victory was that instead of mindlessly grazing like I usually do when I am depressed I was mindful of what I ate and the portions I ate them in. I am proud of myself for that.

    Wow, you did so awesome! I know how much a big deal it was for me when I first ran so I can imagine the pride you feel, and deservedly so! 2 miles and running at the end us a great accomplishment. I'm very happy for you. =)

    My small victory was doing my workout today even when I felt so fatigued that I just wanted to nap instead. So glad I did exercise because I felt great after and don't have the skipped workout guilties to deal with. Mwahah.

    And I agree, never give up! Go Bouncing Apple Blossoms! emoticon

    Have a great weekend!!
