I can tell you this – it is much easier to get in exercise and healthy eating when you are not working. With everything happening in our lives and my demanding job, I let my exercising and healthy diet slip. Fortunately, I never returned to my high of 176 pounds from a few years ago and can say with certainty that those 15 pounds have successfully been banished.
But also, I have never returned to my low of 152 pounds either because well, I don’t have all day to just focus on me. So, I try to make sure I run 2 times a week and work out at least once beyond that.
3 weeks ago, I ran/walked a loop from my house up Pender, Main, the Sea Wall, underneath Canada Place and back home on Cordova.
Pathetically, it took me 42 minutes.
Today I did the same loop again and it took me 37.
Okay, okay, it’s not 25 minutes like some can do, but exercise isn’t about anyone else, it is about you.
Trying. Doing. Failing. Succeeding. All on your own terms.
