#FitnessJourney: Adding a Goal to your Main Objective

Hello everyone,

Let me tell ya, this week went very well! I am impressed with myself. I went to the gym for 3 consecutive days and I also went for a 4th one this weekend. I increased my running speed and I felt great all week. I think I found my balance between cardio and weight training and it seems to be working.

Last month or so, I decided to start taking pictures of myself to track my progress. I want to do it every month, but I cheated this week and wow! I started to see changes within 2 weeks of my last one. I don’t want to share it yet because I feel that there will be more apparent changes if I wait a full month. Increasing the cardio did really make a difference. If you’re on a fitness journey like I am, I strongly suggest taking progress photos. You don’t have to share with anyone, but I feel it helps. When you look at yourself every day in the mirror, you don’t really see the changes happening, but on photographs you do.

To make sure I stick to it, I decided to commit to a race in June. I am officially registered! I will be doing a 5 km run at the Bread & Honey Race. I did that race last year with no training and this year I will do it again with the hope to finish in a better time and feeling great at the end! 🙂

This week I am planning to stick to the 3 mins running and 2 mins walk and increase the speed a bit. I may decide to reduce my walk time to 1 min, but I will see how I feel.

Happy training!

    1. Thank you.
      I’m doing treadmill work right now to get into it. Nothing comparable to running outside, but the intervals makes it a bit less boring. Every day is a new chance to start. You can do this! 🙂

    1. I think the trick is to keep changing the workout before you hit a plateau. Either my doing different types of exercises or by increasing the difficulty. Looks like changing up my intervals helps. Let’s see if it continues. 🙂
