i decided to go running. it has been years. i think i went once three years ago. and before that it was at least 4 years.
i don't work out. i did yoga for awhile before the wedding. and then quickly gave it up.
but today is a new day. a day for change. why? you ask. because i am a lazy, chubby, self loathing, comfort food binging, pathetic, squishy, jiggly...pile of poop.
but...i am full of potential.
day one of new life changing workout schedule:
exercise: running / walking
time: 20 min
mood status: it was, by far, the most miserable experience of my life. my lungs burned. my legs hurt. i felt nauseous. i cursed the world. i did a lot of hacking and spitting. i walked half the time and gasped for air.
exercise: stretching/ yoga/ pushups
time: 10 minutes
mood: i did 10 push ups (yes, the girly kind) and wanted to fall on my face after number 8. i did the warrior pose and got distracted by my own pathetic reflection on the television. i can't touch my toes (not even close..think 6 inches). i did downward dog and my head felt like it filled with blood and i felt like my face was going to explode.
overall i would say this is a great beginning. wouldn't you? i can only improve.
