Hello there! I thought I'd fit in a little HEALTH & FITNESS post today.
So, I'd like to continue being healthy and exercising this year... My first goal is a small, simple one: 100 sit-ups every day. This isn't instead of running or anything. Whatever happens during the day, whether I exercise or not, I will do 100 sit-ups. So far, I've been kind of successful. Sometimes I've done 50. Sometimes I've lost count. What makes this very hard is that it's so easy to forget. Until the routine is stuck in my head, I'll forget about it. So I have a note on the dresser "100 SIT-UPS!!"
I'll be back with an actual HEALTH & FITNESS post soon. I just wanted to let you know that if you have any questions, I will also answer them at the end of each post (if I can/if I remember). I'm no expert, but I can certainly tell you about my own experiences.
I started going to the gym two weeks ago and i still find it hard to reach a good level of running. How long did it take you to get there?
I used to run for a minute and then feel super tired (okay, maybe not just a minute, but it wasn't much). When I started to go to the gym, I would run on the treadmill for.... 100 calories! What? What I would do, instead of feeling horrible because I couldn't run too fast or too long, I would just run as long as I could, then walk, then walk fast (etc...) until the treadmill said I had reached 100 calories lost. It didn't matter if it took 12 or 20 minutes. Now, it takes me less time to reach that 'goal'. I push myself a little bit more each time. As I saw that I got there in less time, I started to up the goal to 110 calories and try to reach it in the same time.
