~Go hard today.
Can’t worry bout the past cause that was yes-terday.
Ima put it on the line cause it’s my time.~
These are lyrics from a song they played in The Biggest Loser episode tonight. Although there was some good stuff in this episode, this song is really what stood out to me the most. I immediately logged into rhapsody and found the song to listen to.
They played this song while the contestants were working out in the gym. Talk about motivational! It instantly made me wanna go get a workout in. You should pull up the song and listen to it too! 😉
I had planned to workout after I got home from work, just a simple 15 minutes or so. But once I got home I was hungry for dinner so I decided I wouldn’t workout. I ate while I watched TBL. When I heard the song on the show, I changed my mind about working out. I am still feeling a little guilty about my eating on Sunday so I told myself I can go for 15 minutes. And I did!
The last time I worked out (5 days ago) I walked/ran for 15 minutes and I went 0.75miles. This time I wanted to make a better time than that. So I started with a slow run while I was fresh and then slowed down to walk when I got tired. I kept alternating between running and walking. This time I ran/walked for 15 minutes and 30 seconds and I went 0.90miles. I’m really proud of that improvement.
Running when you’re overweight is hard, especially when you’re 341 pounds. I’m actually surprised I could run most of the 15 minutes. But I did it and I feel really good about it! My next goal is to go again on Thursday or Friday. And of course, I’ll definitely be working out to my new favorite workout song. 🙂
