wow, lets see....6.a.m. pumped and ready for my 4 mile walk! except today is the beginning of a new challenge for myself. :) he he. I will start running! a slow jog alternating with walking. I'm not a runner, never have been. :) but it's something i've always wanted to be. I don't need to run any marathons, i just want to run! so today I started off with the recommended slow jog/walk. I thought it best for me to walk 2 min, then jog 1and made myself do that for 4 miles :) I thought several times of stopping, i was tired, my shins hurt, i was out of breath, but not only did i force myself to push through, i made it count. all i could here was the dude in my core sectrets video saying over and over, make it count! don't be passive! some people tend to throw their bodies around while exercising, I used to be one of them! but why waste your time and effort if your not going to do it right? right? :) so i stood up tall, payed attention to the way my feet hit the ground, and concentrated on my breathing, and tightening of my abs, i know they are in there somewhere i can feel them now. :) you just can't see them yet! SO i made it count!
I then came home, rested a bit, actually i stretched a lot! lol a few hours later i did my core secrets video, decided i'd try a different one. It was called abs assault! and let me tell you, it was exactly that.lol, my abs will definitely be killing me tomorrow! but no worries... it's all good! lol
I had kashi go lean oatmeal for breakfast, a grilled chix wrap for lunch, and yes, i baught the la tortilla factory kind! hmm, dinner, i have not yet had, but am going to in just a bit.. it's a lean cuisine, chicken and penne pasta. mmm. oh, plain, nonfat yogurt for snack, and also a fiber one bar, which i will switch to kashi go lean when i run out of these ones.
so, i'm happy! thrilled, i'm still going, i grow stronger each day !
