Last weekend I ran a 5K.
It's actually been quite some time since I last ran a race.
Apparently it's been too long. I simply don't have the stamina! I was seriously huffing and puffing before the first mile!
Combine that with the realization that the end cycle of my current workout was NOT going work... And I need to make some changes.
Well, I've been trying to make changes for years now. I just need something to stick. Maybe I'll start small. I'll make sure to measure and track EVERYTHING tomorrow, and make that commitment for the next day. I'll make a commitment to not half-ass my workout. To stretch after.
I now have a goal! And a reward!
Williamsburg Winery and buy myself a bottle of Adagio. (Don't look at the price... this is why it's a reward) Sadly, it's a wine that needs to sit in a cellar and mature for a bit... so I can't open it for another 10 pounds.
I need to find some sore of daily reward/motivator as well.... A reward for tracking, portioning, working out and doing my chores. Is it sad that I'm contemplating a sticker chart. Like I'm 4? And in all of this madness, I was actually considering going back to Beachbody Coaching to see if I can make a buck. I don't know if it'll actually happen, though.
I just need to find a similar motivation for the Spousal Equivalent, who has gotten on the health bandwagon with me.
In other news the anxiety is better, but still not great. I know it's a contributing factor with the unhealthy eating and all.
Here's to picking goals and sticking with them!
I'll check back next Monday to give a progress report!
