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
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.
