You don't have to hit a goal to feel good. You can do it now.

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

You may weight 427 pounds. Your exercise plan might be to walk to the mailbox or to do a chair workout. You don't have to be 140 and run a 10K. When you work out like you planned, you feel great. You don't even have to wait to hit a goal. You can do it today.

I've spent 9 months feeling bad because I was off my program. Most thoughts of how I was doing were negative. Today, at 211 lbs, I did day 2 of my "Re-Run 5K" program, and even though I'm only running 45 seconds at a time, I did it, and it felt great. I felt good about myself. I even looked forward to getting on the scale this morning.

Just think -- this feeling is always only one workout away.

    I have been "off the wagon" for several months now too and have just restarted C25k again... but it's been over a week since I did Day 2 and still haven't done Day 3. :(
You were one of my biggest inspirations when I did C25k the first time so I'm going to get active on SP starting today and let's help each other get back on track!
I see this blog was from Wednesday so... have you done Day3? Day 4?? I will do Day 3 after work today!

    Good job!!! Whenever I think about skipping a workout for some lame reason, I think about how good I'll feel afterwards, and how glad I'll feel that I did it, because that's always there for me. :)

    Totally agree! This kind of attitude has been the main reason I've been happy to stick with running - I think about it as finding joy in my body, rather than finding fault. It's hard to explain and sounds kind of "woo-woo" but it sounds similar to what you're saying. :-)
