Staying fit – how do I start?Thursday, February 12, 2009
However, a mom can still take 30-45 minutes a day of “me-time” to stay fit.
The number one obstacle in starting to get fit is “how to be motivated”.
There are a few things that I do or ask myself:
1) Take a “before” picture. Do you like what you see?
2) Do you feel like you don’t have energy during the day?
3) Do you feel depressed or just “blah” ?
4) Does you hubby still grope you?
5) Do you like how your clothes fit?
If your answers are not what you want to look or feel like, then it’s time to take some action! And don’t feel bad when you also want to look great and not just work out for “health” reasons!
Most mothers and women join gymns together. There are those who sign-up to “fun run”, walk-for-different causes, triathlon, and marathon. Sometimes all you need is a little push to start working out.
Here are some links to different marathons in NY/NJ.
Arthritis Foundation Jingle Bell Run/Walk
Avon Walk for Breast Cancer
Danskin Women’s Triathlon
More Fitness Marathon and Half-Marathon (open to women 40 and up)
Relay for Life in NJ and NY - Cranford
If you missed the sign-up, that’s alright.
You can start training now for next year!
Set a goal - pencil-in your target date.
Get that calendar and start crossing out the days that you worked-out!
