For the purpose of blogging VS not blogging today ...
So after a month of keeping track of food intake and logging on nearly every day, and doing a whole lot of walking and running ... i think i got a little complacent of sorts. I felt like "i got this, i know what i'm doing". But as always, for me, it's more about the community and support - and so without it, i was starting to feel uncomfortable.
i want and need this, especially now with this Mud Run challenge coming up in June. I am walking and RUNNING way more than I ever was able to (I smoked for over 10 years; smoke free now for over 4 years, WOW how time flies!).
I'm confident about the running and breathing part, where I was completely hesitant only a month ago. But now I've got to do something to help me get through the obstacles throughout the course. Going to be watching more videos and looking into agility training.
After my first full day at the gym, and the whole treadmill mishap ( www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
), I haven't really taken too well to going back there. :( I know it has more to do with the feeling of being on my own there - i do not like that. I felt like i kind of got thrown into it, where I much prefer to be shown the ropes and feeling more than 50% confident. I'm considering switching gyms or ditching the gym altogether and taking up kickboxing or something similar.
*sigh* I keep forgetting it's only still February - this warm 60-degree weather here in Jersey feels like the beginning of summer instead of spring, nice!
