14 days in

It's been two weeks, today, that I started the 1800 minute challenge so I figured I should provide a progress report.

I'm struggling. I am committed and I do want to do this but I lack motivation some days (most days). I've been trying a few different things.
Going for a run


Workout videos

Non traditional exercise like jumping on the trampoline

I was really looking forward to the weather becoming warmer so that I could get back into running but I've only been twice and I thought I was going to die. How in the world did I run a 10k last fall? I can't even run a mile now. I feel terrible about that. I really pushed myself last year to do that 10k, did I really start off the season as out of shape as I am right now? It just seems impossible to run that much again. 

Basically, I'm getting in some minutes, not as many as I would've liked ... it's slowly but surely happening. I think I just need some words of encouragement right now. A little voice in my head that tells me "you can do this. you can be fit. you can be who you want to be."

Unfortunately the food thing hasn't gotten any better. Diet, schmiet ... this girl loves food. One day, it will all fall into place.

  1. Hey, I found you through Bloggers Coast to Coast, just looking for others in Fort Wayne! (I haven't lived here too long, so it's nice 'meeting' others around here.) Just wanted to say hello! I don't know what the 1800 Minute Challenge is, but I'm also pretty active and run 5Ks here and there, so I wish you the best with getting back on track. I did the Fort4Fitness 4-mile last year (also in a knee brace) and hope to do the 10K either this year or next (I just read your post on that one, way to go!).


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I really do appreciate every one I get!
