I'm going to take it up a notch emotional wise so it would be interesting to read:)
It was a busy day and I had to pretty much skip lunch.
At that point a had multiple justifications for skipping workout - no lunch, no time, busy.
I thought about walking, but I told myself that's too dark outside and cold.
In about an hour when I decided too eat something instead of working out I switched my brain into analytic thinking...
Don't wanna ride spin bike - fine, go for a walk, dark - no way, it seems dark only from inside the building, got time, eat after a walk, cold - put on a coat.
This morning I didn't like to walk, cause a year ago it was painful, literally I cause hardly go to a store, my back heart even by walking in the store, I even hated to get dressed for a walk cause it wasn't easy.
I ride a taxi to work or meetings, and have all my food delivered so this idea of me hating to walk was stuck so deep.
Now, after my first walk since forever I now this...I can walk for as long as I want.
I walked for an hour today, walked 5k and I wasn't even tired...I stopped only to cross the street and never regret it or wanted to appear at home even once.
Main reason I went home was that I got a bit cold, tomorrow I'll take hat:)
As far as workout goes - for me walking is grate: it gives me diversity, since I've been riding my spin bike everyday for 6 to 8 month(except two days when my old bike broke and I was waiting for a new one). It's actually a great exercise + fresh air, and seeing people and I listen my audio books. And even calorie burning is great, my pedometer goes only up to 130 kg...that's how I put it into the tracker, but I lose much more since I weigh 1.5 more.
I would like to see a 286 lbs man walking an hour with 150 lbs on his back:)
In reality I decided to start walking to actually see what's there outside of my house, there's hole world out there. I'm thinking about spending much more time outside.
Main epiphany was that I need a hat:) it's get really cold outside:)
I haven't wear hat for year, even when it was like -30 outside, it took me seconds to get from building door to a car so...but I have one...and and...I need a better headset, cause it hearts my ears, but maybe it was mainly because of cold.
Keep walking guys!
