Today I am...

Thursday, January 05, 2012

Today I am still working on food and logging. Why is it so easy to forget how good it feels to eat right and exercise? You would think that would be your constant motivator? I feel my best after a day of eating healthy and a good walk/jog on the treadmill, but why does being lazy win out so often? Today I am working on Week 5 of the C25K program. I stopped there around the holidays and I am picking it back up. I love running, the feeling of running and I want to run outside but I have never run anywhere but a treadmill. I am procrastinating that. But still have such a hard time with it. I know it is a total mind over matter issue for me. I need to find ways to confuse my mind so I don't know how long I have been running and then I just keep going. I try to stop too much. I have no idea why, just lazy I guess.

I am so impatient. If I can just learn to be consistent, I know the weight will come off before I know it. Again, I need to trick my mind so I don't realize that I am being consistent every day :)
But, for now, I am just going to think of today.
Today I will : eat within my calories
Today I will: get on the treadmill
Today I will: lift weights

    Just take it one day at a time, try to tell yourself I did great today, I can do this again tomorrow in stead of how long you've been doing it.
    Running for me is still slow, I run for 5 and walk 10, I have not been able to build up my stamina to where I want it yet because of asthma and back problems, but I'm determined to get there :)
