Keeping My Resolution So Far

As I mentioned before, I’d like to start running again.  As I get older I don’t want to be one of those people who always talks about how good of shape they used to be in, or one of those people who did used to be really active and healthy but slowly let it slide until they don’t even realize that it’s been years since they last worked out (you know, like when you put something off, and you’re like “I’ll just do it tomorrow” and then tomorrow comes and you don’t do it, and then it’s been a week, and then two weeks, and then you kinda forget about it).

I want to get in shape.  I want to start eating healthier.  I want to keep my figure under control.

These things are important to me.  I know a lot of people kind of let that stuff go and don’t realize it until it’s too late.  I don’t want to be one of those people.

So I’ll be running again and probably looking into some supplements as well.  I know the majority of results comes from exercise and diet, but supplements can help a bit too.  I’ll probably be looking for some protein shakes, multivitamins, and green coffee bean extract to give me a little boost.  Like I said, it’s not really that I’m that out of shape right now, it’s just that I don’t want to get any worse so I need to be proactive about the whole thing.

I may even start lifting weights again.  Running usually comprised about 95% of my exercise, but you never know.  I have a couple friends who are into lifting and I know if I start going to the gym with them, I’ll probably get into it, too.

Anyway, it’s mostly about getting to the point where exercise a habit; something I do on a regular basis rather than just something I do occasionally when I feel like I should.  So far this year I’ve already gone running twice.  Considering it’s the 12th, that’s approximately once every 6 days, but I’m trying to slowly ease back into it.  I’m going to increase that to two times per week starting next week (Monday and Thursday at first) and then hopefully go up to three times per week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) and just make that a part of my routine.  I’ll know I’m there when someone at work asks me about something on a Wednesday and I think “oh, that’s one of my running days.”
