I started running two weeks ago (to be precise, April 21st) because to be honest, it was a beautiful day and Spring has arrive. If it’s sunny and 70 degrees outside, I needed to run.
Another factor is that I needed to start losing weight for my own health. My family says I needed to lose weight. Put it this way, I know I needed to lose weight, but no one can tell me about it until I’m ready. Diet is like an addiction; you have to hit rock bottom to know you need to lose weight. I felt two weeks ago, I hit rock bottom, so I started running around my block for 2.5-3 miles every day for two weeks and it shows. My stomach is shrinking at a good rate, my clothes is more loose fit, my complexion is better (if that counts), and I feel good internally.
For eating, mine is very unique, so if I were you, I wouldn’t try this. Basically, what I have for breakfast and lunch is two LifeSavers. That’s it, that’s the list (except on Fridays where I just take lunch and dinner). For dinner, it’s whatever is in my refrigerator like pizza, sandwiches, leftover ravoli, etc. I know those have a lot of calories, but with no breakfast or lunch, I can take that chance. Also, to make sure I am losing weight, I’ve started taking the stairs at work and using the Hawaiian Exercise Chair that I bought for my mother for her birthday.
I’ll probably going to continue until I think I’m ready to slow it down and be “normal again.” I need to add dumbbells in my workout regime, and I started every other week to have my intense workout. Today, this is what I did and add 60 minutes of basketball, it was a very good day. Maybe other days, I might take the Cue Bus course, but likely, I will run to George Mason, play basketball, then run back from George Mason to home. You know what, I might like the spring/summer season…
Nah, I still can’t stand the heat.
