Well, sadly I have to admit it has been 7 full days since my last workout. I was consistantly going 5 days a week but when all this hurricane business rolled in things got out of whack.
Without making a long story of this, basically I haven't exercised in 7 days and I've been eating horribly.
BUT! Today I said enough! I can't let the current changes in my daily life throw me off. I busted out my calorie journal and planned to take a run around my neighborhood this evening (all the gyms in my area are still closed due to damage/no power).
Soooo I went jogging around my neighborhood. Holy cow it was hard!! I was very pleased with myself because a week ago I ran my first full mile without walking on the treadmill at the gym. I felt so good at my progress! However, tonight I couldn't even make it half a mile before needing to walk.
I realize that terrain changes, even minor, plus a harder surface make the jog more challenging, but I was still a bit disappointed. I was also pleased, though, because I finally got off my duff and got back to exercising.
Until my gym opens back up I'm going to continue working out around my home. Hopefully I will build up to be able to do a mile in the neighborhood soon.
Do you guys have any tips? I'm assuming it's just - keep at it till it gets easier. heh
Sorry, I guess this was mostly a rant! My husband just doesn't understand, though, and I know you guys will.
