Trying everything...

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Hi! Boy since turning 50 everything is a struggle for me. I can't seem to lose even a pound - and if i do, it comes right back on. I can't get in an exercise routine. Feeling like a big blob. So starting today I am going to try following a couch to half marathon training schedule.
It is very gentle, starts super slow and easy. I have always thought about participating in a Disney 1/2. It's a dream. It can't hurt to try. We will see how far I can get.
I may try to always do my jogging outside. It seems like the treadmill is discouraging somehow and tedious. So my goal is to A) start outside and B) follow this new training plan.
I am and continue to follow low carb/ south beach type of eating.
Ok, here we go. We will see....

    It is more difficult at 50... I ran a full marathon when I turned 30. Now, its a different story. Last summer, I started the couch to 5k app and I enrolled in three different events to keep me motivate just want to tell you that the ambiance of the race, the encouragements by the side line was uplifting. When I crossed the finish line it was as gratifying then 20 years ago . I have decided that 5k is not bad for an old 50..My kids and friends were there for support . It made me feel special! And its achievable for now. What I am trying to say is you might not run your half marathon this year but why not getting your high with your 5k and who knows you can go from there.....;)

    I agree, it is tougher to shed weight as we age (I'm 58). But I believe it can be done. A regular exercise routine will help, so you are on the right track!
