Run, run as fast as you can….

Ok not really as fast as I can, but I have been running(more like jogging). One of my life goals has always been to be a runner. Something about seeing a runner makes me want to get up and join them, and not because of the exercise, but just to have the discipline in me to be able to commit to running with no place to go, but purely for the endorphin kick.

Running makes me tired, but when I am doing it, no matter how out of breath I am, I enjoy it! It makes me feel like my life is complete, I secretly believe that I was born to be a runner but my body is holding me back. You know how some ppl say they feel like they are a fat person in a skinny body, well I feel like I am a runner inside of an out of shape body!

I have been doing the couch to 5k program for the past 4 weeks, and it has been really great at helping me to gain my stamina and control my breathing. Today I actually ran for an entire 15 mins straight! It may not seem like much but that was a feat for me, seeing how I struggled 4 weeks ago to run for 30 seconds without losing my breath.

However I didn’t want to post so that I can talk about my accomplishments with this running thing, I wanted to share my motivations that have helped me to stay committed to it. The things that I repeat daily in my head in order to remind myself that not working out or going for my run each day is not an option.

I hope that you will find motivation in these quotes as you tackle your fitness goals. I am hoping in the next couple of weeks to start posting in more detail about what I have been eating and what workouts I have been doing, but just to for a quick recap, the mix has included boot camp training, spinning class, body sculpt, total body conditioning classes and of course the couch to 5k program.

So here are my motivations, repeat them daily and stay motivated!

In addition here are a few more quotes that I found, that I thought were cool to share:

yesterday you said tomorrow

“It’s uncomfortable, not impossible”-unknown

  1. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to
    be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do
    not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects
    , people could take a signal. Will likely be
    back to get more. Thanks
