Day 11: Starting a streak
Wednesday, May 25, 2011
I've worked out at least 30 minutes every day for eleven days in a row.
The start of a streak. The start of something big. The start of a healthy habit to last the rest of my life.
Today I did Day 2 of Week 4 of my Spark C25k program. I ran 5k in 35 minutes - not too shabby considering that my first race is in about 20 days.
What is motivating about this start of a streak? That I can already feel it. Only eleven days and I can already feel the differences in my body. That I've lost 2.5 kilos and I feel more svelte and sleek. That I CAN do this. I CAN find the time to work out 30 minutes every day. That I CAN get up 30 minutes earlier and do some pilates and make a healthy breakfast.
I want to reach day 111 and look back. I want to reach day one hundred and eleven, day one-one-one and say: I COULD and I DID.
And keep on running. And eating healthy. And cooking new things. And learning. For the rest of my life.
