"Why is it" so easy to sit on that couch and wish we were going out for a walk?
"Why is it" that can't we remember how great we feel after exercising, and instead feel terrible that we didn't.
It's so easy to fall into that rut. Too tired to exercise, to tired to eat right, etc. If I didn't constantly push myself, I know I would end up disabled and living on my couch. I still think this is why my Grandmother ended up in a wheelchair her last 7 years of life. She stopped moving and just sat in a chair.
10 weeks ago, I found a program (Thank God) that turned me around. I was doing so good last fall, and then the holidays started and "why is it" every year from Thanksgiving until around March 15th, I just can't get motivated. Maybe it is SAD, I'm not sure. Luckily, at the end of March I started a wellness program that got me on track. I actually went on vacation 2 weeks ago and missed my workouts and eating plan. I liked the program so much that I signed up for 8 more weeks.
My goal at the end of the program is to complete a 5k. The last race I ran was in 2000, the day before my 39th birthday. A few months after that I hurt my back and was not able to run. The program I'm on now, not only strengthened my back, but it got me jogging again.
