Proud of ME!!!

Thursday, April 25, 2013

I am so proud of myself today.

I had trouble waking up. I did not want to exercise but I put my gear on anyway. I am currently doing the 5k challenge and I was in ni mood to have to try to run weighing 140kgs because it can hurt.( although i will only run 5 mins total out of 25)

I moped around a bit then I decided to search spark videos for something not so hard as the 5k. I settled on the 12min core chair exercise routine. Okay. Good. Did it. I am feeling proud I accomplished some form of exercise. Then I laughed at myself because I knew I wanted to do the 5k now.

So I hopped on the treadmill and started. At the beginning I tell myself not to skip the warm up because that is important for my muscles and especially my dodgy knees. The first 4 blocks I concentrate on how much I have done and not how many blocks are left (this really helps). When I get to the last block I start saying in my head 'I am proud of me, only one more run to go".

Now when I am on that last run and I am starting to really feel exhausted I start saying it out loud. "I am proud of me". "I am proud of me". Soon I cant say the whole sentence so I just say " proud". "Proud" . When I get to the last 10 seconds I cant keep the smile off my face. The fact is that by now I am so proud of myself and I find it funny that I wanted to do no exercise at all to begin with. I do my cool down which my body desperately needs but my mind is on fire. I feel I can do anything today now.

I would like to say good on me. I am proud of me.

    you should be proud of yourself. You are right the hardest part of this is the start. After you have started you can do anything as you just proved to yourself. emoticon m emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
