I've worked out for at least 30 minutes every day for 74 days in a row. There have been days when I am doing the Wii Step at 10:00 p.m. just to get it in, but I've done it. So you would maybe think I had lost some weight. I have. Three stinking pounds. Looks like I need to get serious about the food. Which could be problematic, since I currently have a bag of candy eggs, a bag of mini peanut butter cups and a bag of Sour Patch Kids in my house. Oops.
Having sick kids for over a week has kept me limited to working out at home. I know my intensity has not been high enough. I did start the Couch to 5K training program. I rarely run outside so this is a great way to build my endurance away from the treadmill. It is also frustrating. I can do 3 miles in about 36 minutes on the treadmill, but only 2.3 in 30 minutes outside. I just have a harder time with pace, so that is why I am using the training program. The kids wanted to train with me but finding time for all of us to run has been difficult, especially since they have been sick.
So I feel sort of stuck, but not entirely. I've made some progress. I know that I can find time to exercise if I am really determined to do so. I've accepted that it can't be all or nothing, that light exercise is better than complete laziness. But I want to see more results. I want to feel good in my bathing suit this summer. So I'm going to start working harder. I hope.
I'm only getting online when the kids are sleeping, for Lent. So my posts may become even more infrequent. Ugh.
