Stepping Up

So, Jessica and I have been interval running outside and at the gym. Running outside on pavement was really tough for me, because my legs were getting super sore. I didn’t like running on the treadmill at first. I’ve always had a fear of falling off of a treadmill (and I totally would fall!), but I’ve gotten the hang of it. I actually enjoy being able to pace myself and see how many seconds of running I left before I can walk. We were doing timed intervals of running and now we switch from running to walking every .25 miles. We work out together at LA Fitness, and I’ll work out by myself at Planet Fitness across the street from me. We run outside about once a week.

I am signing up for the running class in September. I feel like I could have better form, and I could make it easier. I also feel like I need to really start learning more about working out and how to get better at it. I still get winded pretty easily, but it’s not as bad when I started. I know I would benefit from actually applying techniques and being more calculated with my work outs. OH, I did start swimming at my complex. I was shocked by how winded I get from just swimming laps, but I enjoy it a lot. Swimming is probably my favorite way to work out so far (haven’t tried a Zumba class yet!).

I have totally failed at eating better, though. How do I stick with healthy eating? What helps you stick with it? I’m totally losing this battle. I’ll keep trying until it sticks, but I have a feeling healthy eating will be a lifelong battle for me.

And look! Jessica just finished her first race!

P.S. A special shout out to Jessica. She’s helped push, and yes it literally was pushing me at times, to stick with this and keep trying. I asked her to push me, and she really is pushing me. Thank you, Jessica!

P.S.S. I think about blogging all the time. But when I think about it, the time I have to blog, I’m working out. So, don’t get too mad at me for not blogging everyday. ;P (Okay, I’ll try to do it weekly!)
