I’ve been going at it for a few weeks now, and this week saw my first weight gain since I’ve rejoined Weight Watchers. It was only one pound, but it hit me harder than I expected it to. So, what did I do today? Went for two 40 minute walks and then in the evening I jogged for the first time since Lily was born. The last time I actively ran/jogged/did something with my feet other than walk, was the summer of 2009. It felt good to be out there jogging again, but man it was tough. I was out there for 20 minutes, and when it was all said and done, I ended up jogging for 8 of the 20 minutes. Not bad for a fat dude who still has a long way to go. I’m making progress though.
What got me motivated during my jog? Eminem, Nas & Damian Marley, and Against Me!. Those are some great bands to get you pumped up. What are songs or artists that motivate you when you need to reach down into your guts to break through to the next level? My wife and I are working on some mixes for our next bouts with jogging.
Damn, it feels good to get back in the swing of things when it comes to exercise.
In case you were wondering, the title of this blog is the Eminem song that really got me going the first time I got really tired on my jog.
