I am horribly unmotivated. I have a hard time
remaining on track any time I try to start some kind of healthier living plan. I think maybe it’s because I try to do too much to fast. I push myself too hard and I get burnt out. I just give up. I don’t have the financial resources, or the time it takes, to go to a gym. I get bored working out at home and I just don’t like it. I have started so many workout “plans” just to give them up after a couple of weeks.
That’s why I am so excited to have found this. The Couch-to-5K running plan. I love to walk outside with my son. I love to be outside in the sunshine and the fresh air. I have, for several years, wanted to participate in a mini-marathon. This is perfect! It has a step-by-step workout plan. It is 3-4 days a week, so I won’t overdo it, or feel like it’s too much. And, it is made for people who aren’t in perfect shape already, so I won’t feel like a failure. If I stick with it, I will be able to run/jog 3 miles by the middle of April. I am so excited about it! Isaiah will be too, since he can load up in the jogging stroller and ride along. This is the first step towards a healthier me!
I need step-by-step plans that are realistic and don’t make you hate life. Whether they are for eating healthier or exercising. If you know where I can find others, point me in the right direction!
