These pictures aren’t horrible (other than the fact that they are blurry) but I want them to be better than this. The last 2 weeks my life has been stress, stress, stress!!! I am feeling bloated and chubby. I still haven’t gotten on the scale and I’m determined to eat better this week. Hopefully some of the stress and craziness will calm down so that my body and mind can focus on health again. Sadly this is the cycle of daily life. I am determined not to let my body go and to continue to do what I can to stay healthy. I did boot-camp class at 5:15am and now my goal is to do a light 5k run without changing speed on the treadmill unless I increase the speed. I haven’t run much with life being so crazy. I’ll report back as to how it goes. Don’t ever give up on your self no matter what!!!
UPDATE: I did it! I started out the treadmill at 5 miles per hour (12 min/mile) then at 1/4 mile went up to 5.5 miles per hour (10.9 min/mile). At 2 miles I bumped it up to 6 miles per hour (10 min/mile) then at 2.8 bumped it up to 6.5 miles per hour (9.2 m in/mile) and then at 3.1 miles I took the last tenth of a mile up to 7 miles per hour (8.5 min/mile). Not fast but great for not running for so long. I did a cool down at 4 miles/hour for the last .8 miles to get my heart rate down. Then some stretching. I wanted to quit so many times but I wrote my goal down here for all of you to see so I wasn’t going to fail.
I can do hard things!!!
