Regarding another blog. Mary at A Merry Life recently did a workout pledge. Her's was much more simple than any I've done. She added 30 seconds for every comment posted on her blog. I (along with 21 other weight-loss bloggers) decided I should match her pledge. 180 comments later, the time limit for the pledge was set. My next workout would be 90 minutes long.
I tried to do it today, but realized after 50 minutes on the elliptical that I had somewhere to be and couldn't possibly finish. So I decide I'll be starting again tomorrow (and finishing this time).
I also did day 2 of C25k today with my wife. Other than the side aches, I'm really digging it. It's a very manageable way to get this fat guy running.
I also have a confession to make. I had a mini-binge today. Claire and I went to a picnic for a friend's birthday. There were chips and salsa there and I had a lot of both. I also had some Doritos and some orange Gatorade and the most amazing tiramisu (sp) brownies ever. I was stuffed in the end, but I figure some of that was negated by the double-dose of workout I had today.
One last thing, I recently heard from a friend I haven't heard from in a while. He mentioned that he'd been reading my blog and every time he needs a push to get to the gym, he reads my blog. It makes me feel really good to know that I'm helping other people become healthier.
He told me about a facebook group he's a part of called Beach Body Here I Come! It's a group of people keeping each other motivated to lose weight and live healthier. I'll be going there frequently to give and get advice and motivation. You should check it out too.
What or who inspires and motivates you to live a healthier life?
