The third week into my fitness goal and I'm feeling great. After having started the 5k training last week I am enjoying running almost every day. I feel that biking every day has prepared my lungs for the exercise.
United Kingdom, Taiwan, the United States. What do these three countries have in common? At least one person with their nationality were present at tonights meetup. Along with this wonderful assortment of people came an equally awesome display of cooking talent. From chili made from dry beans, to brocolli salad and walnut desserts, we all came with our own special dishes and left with full bellies and full hearts.
Another week gone by and I have successfully completed all my exercises. Honestly, sometimes I just feel like giving up, it seems like it would be the easier path. Yet every time I finish another set, every time I complete another days exercise I feel a great achievement, I didn't give up, I persevered. My total pushps and situps have increased to 65 and 136 respectively.
Last night was my first workout using the Zombies, Run! 5K. This takes you through the scary experience of being outside during the zombie apocalypse. The app features an 8 week, 3 days a week, proffessionaly made exercise routine which is setup to get you ready to run that 5K.
I find most holidays to be a little hard, especially ones with the expectation of gifts. You see, throughout the year if there is something that we need or wanted we have already made plans, put the money aside, done research and bought it. Why then do we feel sociatal obligations to spontaneously purchase things?
