I have officially learned to love moving. I remember the days where I would make any excuse in the book NOT to get to the gym or get outside. I was totally against physical exercise. It was too hard.
Today I have learned to LOVE it. It still takes some hard work and preparation to get myself to the gym but after I complete a workout, my body feels SO amazing. Seriously, If I can do this...so can YOU! I want to be that girl. That girl that people look at and say " Really? Serina is running?! If she can do it, so can I!".
Weight Watchers is currently advertising it's Walk-It Challenge. They are encouraging thousands of people to get out and MOVE! I am excited to use their tools to help me in the training process for my first run. Also, Emily has already signed up to do her 5k with the Walk-It Challenge! Can't wait to hear your progress, Emily. You are such a motivation!
If there is anyone that would like to join me on a 5k, please let me know! I would love to do a few this year with friends!
On Sunday, I kicked and screamed my way to the gym. Michael and I had a super lazy day and I just wasn't having it. BUT, I sucked it up and went! The only bummer was that when I was on the machine I accidently pressed the clear button and cleared my progress! I HATE that. So, I snapped a quick pic of my 1st workout and jumped right back into it. Here is how it went...
1st try-15 minutes, 1.42 miles and 165 cals!
Right back into it for another 20 minutes, 1.5 miles and 190 cals! Total of 35 minutes and 355 cals!
After I got home I was tempted by Todd's DELICIOUS homemade lasagna. Too delicious to pass up! I am not sure of the points but here was my dinner.
Thanks, Toddski! It was delish!
I couldn't wait to get back to the gym today. I hit the ellipictial hard! I was a hot mess! But man, it felt AMAZING. I am looking forward to another run tomorrow!
Ill leave you with this quote I read in Max Sports Fitness Mag:
"Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle...when the sun comes up, you'd better be running." -Anon
