Sports challenge update

19 July 2012

So how is my sports challenge going? I have to admit: not so good. I hate to admit I’ve failed so far, but there are no other words for it. Yes I’ve been running every week. But only once a week or maybe twice a week. Not three times a week. Of course I could blame the fall weather, but I also have to blame myself. Last summer I didn’t mind running when it was raining. Okay: it was about or above 20 degrees and raining. Now it’s under 20 degrees and raining and that does not motivate me. But I’ve also been lazy. When I get home from a long day of work I just want to prepare a nice meal and relax. I have however been doing a lot of exercises for my muscles! And I have been eating very, very healthy. I’ve always eaten very healthy but for the past few weeks I have cut back on the artificial sugar etc. Today was the first time I had a weak moment and bought some candy. So yeah, that is going pretty well. But that was not the challenge, right?

Working out

So here’s what I am going to do. I’m going to tell myself to run twice a week instead of three times a week. Hopefully this will work and once I get running back in my systems I will probably start to run more myself. Because I do notice a change in my overall condition if I run. I feel better, I’m not breathless after every little thing I do and I also feel a lot thinner . Stupid I know, but when I work out I feel much more confident even if I’m not losing any weight.. and I do not run or eat healthy to loose weight. I run for my overall health and condition and I eat healthy because it is good for my body and because I really enjoy it.

Hopefully I can tell you guys better news in my next update.

    Erik en ik hadden heel sportief onze sportkleren meegenomen naar mallorca en we zijn bijna iedere dag gegaan.. Maandag bijna, dinsdag bijna, … 😉
    Ik ga maandag echt beginnen! Want op vakantie was ik helemaal dood na al die trappen op (we zaten bovenaan met ons appartement).
