I’ve had many so called medical experts tell me that I shouldn’t try running because it’s to high impact. I understand where they are coming from but I have to do something to burn calories and low impact only works so well. I’m going to give running yet another try but I have a different plan this time. I’m not going to follow a C25k plan really, I’m going to start with walk/jogging. There are trails near my new apartment so I am going to work on milestone distances. My plan is to start out walking, jog until I can’t job any more, and then walk until I can jog again. I’m going to do this for specific distances until I find that I can jog more than walk. Once I’m ready, I’ll extend the distance and just keep going and not stop.

Intermixed with this will be bike riding, swimming, elliptical work, and weight training. I need to get active again, no mater what it takes.

From now on I will never give me up and I will never let me down. After everything that went off track the last year or so, it’s time to get back to getting the job done. Here are my goals:

  1. Read and work through the “Food and Feelings Workbook”
  2. Exercise – I’m going to use a mix of fit deck cards, swimming, elliptical, weights and walking/biking outside. I moved into an apartment complex that has both and indoor and outdoor pool as well as a small fitness room with an elliptical and a weight machine. I also live really close to a park with a walking trail and right by two bike trails. No excuses. I have plenty of at home work out stuff I can do too.
  3. Eat whole foods and cook more. I’m going back to my focus on whole foods and eating more vegetables and watching my overall intake. No more sweets and soda, it’s not good for me and I don’t need it.
  4. Blogging more. Blogging keeps me motivated and I need to get back to it.
  5. Weighing weekly. I need to get back to knowing what my weight is and keeping track so I know when I’m going in the wrong directions and need to make adjustments.
