So I did! I made it through a week of working out and let me tell you, it was not easy! I honestly did look like the lady in the picture above. My goal was to run at least 5 out of 7 days. Well, I actually didn't start until Tuesday and I was feeling sick on Friday so that was my skip day. BUT here's the results:
I started working out on Tuesday. I wanted to start slow so I would disappoint myself and then give up. So I basically just did some speed walking. I did a mile but it took me about 22 minutes! I wanted to cry. That was terrible. I used to be able to run a mile in around 10 minutes. The verdict is in: I'm officially OUT OF SHAPE!
Instead of letting that disappoint me, I let it motivate, yes I said it, MOTIVATE me into doing better. By Sunday I am now able to jog a mile in 15 minutes! Not bad for my first week of working out! And let me tell you, I feel great!
Now, here's this week's dilemma. I'm going to visit my mom and she doesn't have a treadmill so that is totally going to mess up my routine. What suggestions do you have for when you go on vacation or have to be out of town but still need to work out? How do you get your exercising in? And even better, how do you continue to eat healthy? I need some advice, QUICK! =)
