Well, well, well… why is it so hard to: (a) save money; and (b) get back into shape? This post is only about one aspect of this, but please, any insight is helpful.
This past week’s work-out log:
- Thursday – 30 min. of TurboFire + stretching
- Friday – lots and lots of walking (to try and balance out Oregon Brewers Festival) + going out dancing
- Sunday – 30 min. of yoga (at home)
- Tuesday – Couch to 5K – Week 1, Run 1 (eight one-minute runs + 1.5 minutes walking in-between)
Pretty menial, all things considered. I’ve been trying to get a 10-20 minute walk in every day at lunch, too, but I’m not counting that towards the work-out since it’s more of a mindful practice.
Tomorrow, I plan on trying to get another short run in. I need to figure out a work-out for Saturday morning, since I’ll be out-of-town for a wedding. Maybe I’ll bring a work-out DVD to Seattle or get a run in that morning. However, I’m going to have to figure out something.
Readers (and I know you’re out there), any tips for staying on-track with a fitness plan while you’re out of town?
Also, what keeps you motivated when you’re getting back into shape? I feel like it’s more difficult to stay positive when I know I used to be in better shape!
