Tomorrow is a New Start

Monday, November 04, 2013

I looked at my progress report for weight loss. I am 4 pounds over where I should be to meet my goal. I realized a couple of weeks ago that I was going to have to start jogging to get there. I want to be in Onederland by the time I visit my Dr in December. That's 6 more pounds. I should be about 190 by then with any luck. So today I started running. Not far but I have to include it in my exercise routine. So I've got biking on Monday & Wednesday. Walking on Tuesday & Thursday (or bike if the weather permits). I do long walks on the weekend. I also do 25 pushups 5 days a week, workout on my AbLounger and lift weights 5 days a week (morning or evenings whenever I can fit it in). I wasn't sure when I would find the time to add running too. I already jog down all the hills I come to when I'm out walking. But I've looked at alot of the successful weight loss bloggers here on Spark and they all have one thing in common - they run. They run races pretty frequently. They run with groups. They all run and they have all lost weight. Lots of weight. I want that to be me. I want to drop those 6 pounds and get it over with. To reach Onederland and start moving down to a healthier weight. I don't want to be 'obese' anymore. So I have to run. I shall run every possible day. Either in the morning before work or in the afternoon when I return home. I will try the morning tomorrow. Not far, just to the corner and back. But after the buses have gone by so none of my students see me. Tomorrow is a new beginning.

    Like you I thought that all successful Sparkers were runners, so I wanted to run. But my doctor told me running is something I cannot do (not regular, recreational running anyway). I am limited to low-impact activity. So I walked. And it worked. But I had to keep raising the intensity of the walking I was doing.

    If you think that this is what you want to do then I am all for it.

    On my side of the fence, the walkers, running isn't for me and I don't intend on doing it ever unless I am either being chased by someone spooky or I am chasing after a 30 year old cabana boy. LOL

    You will get there. Stick with the run/walk & you will see definite results.

    God bless,
