New Goals- How to walk the path?

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

What motivates people enough to walk the path and stick to what they initially set out to do? I think that I have always suffered from depression and so running was my cure when I was younger (which became very addicting). But now since I'm at Master Runner's Age and my weight is way over and I'm out-of-shape what and how can I get this old carcass moving again gently enough that I don't hurt myself but with enough velocity that my spirits are up and that I feel like my life has purpose? I spent the last 2 and a half years in college and finally graduated this last month (which was one of my goals) but all during that time I only played with trying to get into shape. I was working full-time, trying to parent and do my studies.. considering I guess I did o.k. but it all has taken a heavy toll on my body. I walked today a very long way.. and it felt really really good to commune with nature. I am so hoping that I can get out EVERY SINGLE day and do something. I so wish to get this weight off!!! And to be able to run again..

    I am a runner and I know that I miss running when I don't do it... having said this, my mom tried running and it was not for her because she was at a point where she was hurting more than she would get benefit out of it... Now, she walks every day... and she is a fast walker!

    Walking is great... especially in nature. What I like about it is what I get to see around... I carry a small camera and take pictures! That is a great way for me to look for the little things around and to appreciate the scenery...

    Be patient... Happy August!

    You can do it.. slowly building up with walk/jogging. Take you time for both your healthy and mental outlook on it and take your time. Enjoy the time outside and make it a daily routine! And have FUN!
    Strength training also goes a long way in helping us lose weight and be strong enough for running etc!
