PR With a Twist

Not just PR, but the twists and turns that make life interesting.

One more thing for the weekend…

I forgot to mention in my last post (about what I learned on the first week of the Whole 30) perhaps the most important lesson:

You can’t be successful in undertaking any lifestyle-changing, health-inducing program if you don’t exercise!

That is my personal opinion, of course, but it is proving to be true at least for me. When I began this journey, I had no daily exercise routine. Zilch. Zero. Oh yeah, I would get an ounce of inspiration from time to time and have a spurt of energy and resolve to do something but it would fade quickly. I’m also not a lifelong couch potato, either, having been a competitive athlete in my youth and teenage years. Therefore, I know what a fitness routine looks (and feels) like.

During my first week, I diligently committed to do some sort of exercise at least three times per week for 30 minutes at a stretch. What I choose was a brisk walk/jog and did 2.36 miles the first day, 2.26 the second, 1.16 the third, realized I was losing weight and did nothing for days four through 10! Yikes! I’m happy to say I’m back at it, with nearly two miles logged today, and a renewed dedication. I know it’s not much to start, but I hope to work up to more and stay consistent.

I think my bout with insomnia (which I’ve never experienced) during the days that I didn’t exercise could be attributed to my idleness. Or at least helped if I were more active. I also haven’t been as regular or felt my metabolism working as effectively on the days that I don’t exercise. It will be interesting to see how those things are impacted.

So, there you have it. No more excuses. Time to get back in the fitness saddle!

Have a great weekend,

Lisa
