Here Goes Nothing

I have never been a gym goer. I played sports all growing up, but going to the gym has never been my thing. It could be that I have asthma and so working out hasn't always been easy for me. It could be because I am usually a very busy person. It could be because every time I start, I never try long enough to make it a habit. It could be because I always had an excuse. It's too cold, the gym is far away, I would rather sleep, I can't run. It could be because I have never really had the motivation. Don't get me wrong, I do not have the perfect body. There are lots of times, like most girls, I have looked in the mirror and not been happy. But, at the same time, I have never really been unsatisfied enough to make the effort.

Until now. No, I have not gotten fat. I am actually at the lowest weight I have been in a long time. And I have been fooled. Fooled into thinking that I am healthy because what the scale tells me. I always judge my health by my weight, which I assume is common among the American population.  I did not realize that my weight is going down because I have no muscle. All of the muscle I built during sports has slowly been dripping off my body since I stopped playing volleyball. 

So it's time for a change. Yes, I work around 50 hours a week, but now that I don't have homework or many other responsibilities, I feel like I have a lot of extra time. I have no excuse not to get to the gym. So its time to get off the couch and stop watching hours of reality tv. It's time to stop sleeping 10 hours every night. It's time to stop making excuses. It's time to lace up my tennis shoes, throw on some shorts, and get it in gear. 

So here is the plan. Train for a 5K with my sister and her husband. Don't focus on losing weight, focus on overall fitness. Learn to love to run. My plan is about two weeks in as of right now. Running is slowly starting to become easier for me. I have even been looking forward to it and enjoying it. I am especially enjoying my after workout smoothies (mixed berries, spinach, banana, almond milk, protein powder. Try it, you won't be disappointed). Let's hope I can actually keep it up. 

Starting 3 mile
37 minutes (yeah, yeah, pretty pathetic)

Current 3 mile
35 minutes (down 2 minutes WOO HOO!)

Goal 3 mile 
25 minutes

Here goes nothing!

Until next time,

M
