I'm going to go ahead and apologize for the rambling that is about to occur! Callie had an awesome post today about having a more healthy lifestyle and I decided I wanted to do the same thing!
With this running kick I have been on for the past 2 or so months, I have been trying very hard to really pay attention to what I am eating and how much I am exercising!
Normally, this is my workout schedule:
Monday- run 3 miles + weight training at the gym
Tuesday- go to CSI energy class at the gym + 1 mile on the elliptical/treadmill
Wednesday- run to the gym and back to go to zumba
Thursday- various exercises
Friday- day off
Saturady- day off or go on walk with Sarge
Sunday- go on a short run or walk with Sarge
My problem is this: Consistency.
I get bored doing the same things over and over. Lately, the gym has been SUPER hot and I have also had issues running outside on the terrible uneven sidewalks we have in town. Sometimes Tyler and I play tennis. Every now and then I'll do an ab workout with my roommate.
I just get really tired after work and on the weekends I want to relax!
I'm also trying to start to train for a Half Marathon. I have to have some type of goal and this would be a good one. Who has a good training program???
I've also tried to start eating better. During the day I am OK with the snacks I have while at work along with my lunches I pack. Dinner is my problem. We eat later because of my time in the gym and usually poor Tyler is the one who ends up cooking dinner because he gets off work before I do and gets to the gym before me. We usually settle for something unhealthy and fast. How do you overcome this... One way:
I want to learn how to get up and run in the mornings.
I just really value my sleep too much! How do I overcome this??
I'm not aiming to lose a specific amount of weight (this honestly seems very impossible for me to lose anything!!), so I am just trying to eat better and be more active. I guess the weight loss will come?
What do you think? Any help/tips/thoughts appreciated, good or bad!
