That's all changed now. Sure, having plenty of time to write has been the biggest help, but I truly think that if I got a job tomorrow, I wouldn't change my new routine.
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I put my gym membership to good use. And on Tuesday and Thursday I walk outside (I LOVE the outside) for 60 minutes. I love this routine and I'm upset if it rains on Tuesday or Thursday (then I have to use the treadmill, which I'm not thrilled at using, except I can get 60 minutes of reading done).
I keep pushing myself at the gym. Adding repetitions until 15 is easy, then increasing the weights. I'm not at where I had been back in 2009, but I'm getting close. Yesterday showed me that.
I actually ran! Not a lot, but more than I thought I could do. And I wasn't really out of breath (although my legs hurt). I impressed myself! Next time maybe I will run longer.
I'm committed to getting into shape. To be stronger. To have endurance.
Me being able to run has shown me I'm actually getting there!
Now, if I can only curb my eating so I can actually lose weight. But hey, muscle weighs more than fat. And burns more calories. So eventually the weight will drop. Gotta look at the positives!
