So I've decided that I am tired of being out of shape. I know that I'll never reach the size of weight pre-kids and pre-laziness. But I would like to be comfortable in my skin again. I always have good intentions to work out, eat better, and spend less time in front of the computer. Well, good intentions only get you so far.
Starting on Monday, I went for a run. I don't know why I always think that if I start off running, it will show me that I'm not horribly out of shape. I should start off slowly and walk and work up to a run but no I always go for a run and then I'm terribly sore for a few days. I do like that while I don't have a fast pace, I can run for almost 2 miles without collapsing on the track.
So I ran on Monday and on Tuesday, had to take a break yesterday because I had a busy schedule (that's another downfall of mine, I do good and then have a busy day and just ignore a work out altogether). Well today I walked the boys to school and then went and walked the track. I'm sure the unit that was doing PT out there thought I was crazy because, I had the iPod going and I have zero shame in rocking out with the tunes. I'm sure they loved my rendition of Jack Johnson's Banana Pancakes and Al Green's Lean on Me, lol. I don't really care, my music keeps me moving and it helps me control my breathing which I'm terrible at when working out. Maybe the Army does know something about the cadences they used to force us to sing. I always hated calling cadence because I felt that they were asking way too much of a person..you want me to run, breathe AND sing!?!?!
So there you go, I'm putting it out there for the world to see..maybe it will help me with accountability (I doubt it since I rarely answer to anyone in any realm of my life) but perhaps I can fool myself into thinking someone cares and is watching me!
