Lisa: Training for a 5k?
I am still 10-15 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight and have continued to struggled to lose every lb since my daughter was born. One of the hardest things for me to figure out is how to incorporate exercise into my weekly routine. Similar to one of the current forum posts (click here to view), my schedule is completely crazy because I work full-time outside the home and of course I need to find time to work on this wonderful online community =).
Prior to getting pregnant, I would work out all the time. My weight would fluctuate every few years within the same 10 lbs, but I was never THIS overweight. I would have called myself athletic and enjoyed working out. Now I feel like I barely have any time with my daughter or husband so on the weekends I feel guilty leaving them to go workout.
I am now contemplating training for a 5k so I can get back into shape, but I fear that I will not stick with a training plan because I will find excuse after excuse not to stick with it (anyone out there relate or am I just completely crazy!?).
So, I’ve decided to put my fate in your hands…
If 20 people encourage me to start training (& commit) to doing a 5k by ‘Leaving a Reply’ below, then I will commit to all of our NMO members that I will training AND complete a 5k by October 2010!!! That of course comes with the understanding that I’ll blog about my experience every step of the way!
I am leaving the decision power up to all of you so I can stop making excuses and start getting back into shape….
Picture: This is me at my wedding 5 years ago…I bet most of you mommies who know me only post-baby would have never recognized me! Yikes!
