Decided for various reasons not to try a 5K yesterday. My goal has been to complete a 5K every week. I began last week and I thought I did OK. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 47 min. I don't remember completely. That all changed.
I was reading another of a long list of motivational writings and it said the same things - If you want to be happy and successful do these things.
It was a bit unusual for me this week. It was 10 pm and I had not been to the gym, so I decided to go. I have not been that late and there really wasn't anyone there. I have had the goal of running a 5k in 45 min on the treadmill and so far have not reached it. I decided to give it a go on Wed.
Something pretty cool happened at the gym yesterday. Last month my wife and I went to the gym doing cardio 3 times a week and weights 2 times a week. This was just to get us into going to the gym and being consistent.
Yesterday was a telling day. My wife and I had taken last week off from the gym and life, because we were ill. It would be so easy to fall into the trap of not caring anymore, but we wanted to get back to where we left off.
A few summers ago, I decided I did not want to continue with my current diet and decided to try the Vegan diet. Technically, the diet I found was a whole food plant based diet. I am not really sure if I kept a strict Vegan diet or if it was more vegetarian, but all the same it consisted of not eating meat or anything dairy related.
Many moons ago, when I was a teenager, my grandmother told me it was time for me to get braces to close the gap in my teeth. I protested by telling her that the gap in my teeth "gave me character."
I am going to try a new diet starting today. It is one I do often and I want to try it again for the month of October. It is the Slow Carb diet made famous by Tim Ferris in the 4-hour body.
Since I joined the gym 3 weeks ago, my wife and I have been going regularly. I am not sure we are seeing much of a difference weight wise, but things seem to be tightening up and I am starting to feel like I have a little more energy.
