Motivation....that's the word of the week. It also happens to be what I am currently lacking from a dietary and exercise frame of mind. I struggle with keeping my motivation (as well as recovering it) when my life is topsy-turvy. It seems that I am rarely home and I spend most of my time trying to take care of others that I give up on myself. It's not something that's going to end soon. I need to try find some energy or will power to push myself along. I suppose it would help if I could ever think of my lifestyle change as something other than work. It still time spent for me but the lure of vegetating on the couch is irresistable. I think at some point today I will crawl off of here, slip on my huaraches, and restart my C25K program. I was going to do this yesterday but had to spend the day with my Dad at the VA. If I don't start today then it'll be March 1st before I think about it again. I have been saying that I was going to start in February because I thought my injury would be healed and now that's it's February I had better get started. I think my leg is okay, it's been a long time (6 months) since I first hurt it. Below is text that I imported from the little running blog I started last year. This will explain what I injured and why it's taken so long. I suppose if I was in any sort of decent physical shape that it wouldn't have taken so long but I am literally going from the couch to running. I'm not one of these people who does a little walking or takes a spin class at the gym a couple times a week. I'm a true blue couch potato.
