(Note to those who don't know me: I am 22, in college and alive at home. And I had ADD so I tend to jump topics pretty often.) I know what to do, but I don't. I sit on the couch, or even my bed, just playing on the computer all day. Honestly, if I did not have a job or class, I likely would never go outside. That is the honest truth. What do I do? I am convinced one day I will get fit, and live healthy. But one day will never be here if I don't do anything. I want to blame my family and job for my poor eating. My family buys stuff that is truly unhealthy, but I eat it. And I work in front of a fryer most of the day at work (I work at a seafood restaurant that majors in fast food). But honestly, I can make my own meals. I can bring stuff in, I can prep stuff, I know food better than Robin Williams knows comedy. I just need to start working on this list of stuff that I will do.
I always complain after work, my back hurts, or my shirt is wet, or I smell like fried seafood, or I don't have a change of clothes. I never go to the gym. I have an active gym membership, paying $40/month, yet I have not been in over four months. When I do go, I just do cardio because I don't know what exercises complement each other, and I feel as though I cannot push my muscles enough to really do any hard work.
I have a goal of running a 5k by my birthday, July 16. I can run about a minute right now. I need to run about 30-45 minutes to be able to complete the 5k.
At the Warrior Dash I completed last Saturday, I found my starting pace is rather fast, but it tires me out too much. I don't know how to restrain myself to conserve energy. I guess I just gotta do it to figure these things out, right?
Also, for those who eat rather healthy, how much veggies do you go through a week? I seem to eat a LOT of veggies when I have it around. And healthy breakfast ideas? Workout ideas/plans? Something that works?
I just get so frustrated at myself. I know what I should be doing. I think about it all day, every day. It's almost become an obsession, yet I still do not follow the lifestyle. At this point I feel as though that physique I see these other people have is impossible. That it is just a dream, an illusion. I know I gotta do things progressively and I'll make it, but it seems so far and so hard.
