The constant battle with staying healthy and living an active lifestyle. This concept is in direct contradiction to work lifestyle which encompasses me sitting down in front of a monitor and rarely getting up. I do believe exercise is truly necessary for your daily life. I feel better, more energized, and happier when I am active throughout the day. Squeezing in time for exercise must be part of a daily routine and ever since I moved to a new city and state, my routine has bene nonexistent. The pounds have followed, not a lot but just enough. When you notice you are having trouble zipping up your jeans, it’s time to get up and move. The concept is of course a lot easier in my mind than in practice. My goal is to work out five times a week. These workouts initially are going to be easy. Light jogging combined with walking. But it will start the progression to harder workouts, which I know I physically can do, but have no motivation.
So far this week, I went running/walking on Monday and Tuesday. I want to go running/walking (probably mostly walking) on Wednesday. But as I write this, I already want to just go lay down after work and take a nap.
I’m writing this to remind myself I need to go. At least go walking and get some steps. I will feel better in the long run. It takes a month to establish a habit. I’m at day 2, again. I have tried to start the 30 days for the past two months. I can do it. I must go walking. I must.
Update – I walked and achieved 16K steps for the day.
Tomorrow a 4 mile run!
