Ok, so I'm out of the rut. And really it only took a couple of days of exercise to do it. I'm taking my fruit with me to work and paying attention to what I'm eating at each meal to ensure a good balance of of nutrients throughout the day. It has made all the difference. I foolishly thought I could skimp on the exercise and see the same rigorous results that I saw before, but NO SHORTCUTS.
Last night I worked out with my best friend. I did cardio for forty minutes. Essentially I ran for 30 of those minutes. Out of the 40 minutes I only took 2 five minute breaks. That's phenomenal for me! Having my best friend there kind of made me want to show off a little lol. But I proved to myself I can do it. I really need to give 100 percent during my workouts. It was a challenge for me at times, but I got it done. I pushed myself. And I felt great afterwards.
I checked this book out from the library and it's pretty good thus far. It talks about starting a sensible running program, which I'm all for. I've only been doing this for four months so it's hard for me to picture myself a life long runner. Once I'm in there and I'm doing it I feel happy and especially after it's over, but the hardest part is getting going! This book is a good motivator and tool.
Glad to be back on a progressive track. Happy Sunday!
