I have a goal. I want to walk, run/jog, the Bolder Boulder. This means I need to train. This means I need to get off my backside and walk. There is no Facebook post, no game of CandyCrush, no television program or movie that is more important to me than reaching my goal! I've wanted to do this for YEARS! This will be the year I participate in this 10K race. I am competing against no one but me, but my lack of fitness is a formidable opponent.
I have a plan to get ready for this and I'm starting to implement some of it, however the weather in Colorado has been pretty snowy and wet, so I've kind of let that get in my way. But no more! Starting today (not tomorrow, not next week) I am going to follow my plan. I'll start at day one of week one and faithfully follow my plan EVERY SINGLE DAY!
It is worth the work it takes to be healthy and fit. I need to do this for myself. I need to do this for my family. It doesn't matter that I am currently 70 lbs overweight, I can follow this plan.
I will also do at least one strength training video from SparkPeople three times a week.
Between the two it will never be more than an hour and a half per day.
That's not asking too much of myself. That is loving myself!!
