When I first started my journey one of my first changes was fitness. I have found when you start focusing on fitness the rest kind of goes with it. I find when I work out I try to eat better. I know many who work out to eat junk, but for me it inspires me to eat better. But it’s still a process. The eating better doesn’t typically happen overnight.
So what are my new changes you ask? Well, first I am not weighing myself. This change isn’t about one single number. I am just making better choices in my life slowly! This can be by how I look, dress, eat, and work out! My first step was yesterday. Well, actually, I am incorrect! My first step has been months in the making by wanting to try this journey again, from there I downloaded C25k on my phone, then I got headphones for my phone, and then downloaded songs I wanted to listen to….
All these things pumped me to get ready. Because the fact is, it’s a process! I can’t just jump into all of this! I know that doesn’t work for me. Finally yesterday I did day one of C25K. All in all it wasn’t bad. But it was only a total of 1.5 miles including warmup. But again this isn’t about numbers
I am not preparing for any races (although, I did think about it) this is just purely to see what my body can really do with training. I got frustrated a few times because I couldn’t run a full minute. Sometimes I couldn’t run at all. Sometimes my “brisk” walk, was a slow walk. But like I said- it’s all a process! The good news is today I can’t wait for tomorrow to try again! Which I find to be progress!
