An important PSA and Project “Fiti Wants to RUN”

Today is day 1 of project “Fiti Wants to RUN”. We had a break in the rain so I took my chances and went out. It wasn’t very far, but I did intervals with 3 of them being jogging.
I’m taking the safe route this time and SLOWLY building up to running. This is the price I have to pay for spending so many years being inactive and neglecting my health. My body was so torn down that I have to be very careful or I will be hurt and unable to exercise at all. The last time I tried to get into running, last year, I ended up with horribly painful shin splints and couldn’t do anything for quite some time. I was uneducated, I didn’t recognize the difference between good pain and bad pain, and I pushed too hard making the problem worse.
It was my husband who gave me a wake up call while I was feeling sorry for myself that I couldn’t run. He said something like “You basically spent most of your life not exercising. You’ve only been doing this a few months. Things are going to hurt.”
Shin splints, bad knee, excess weight, no cardiovascular strength. That’s what happens when you sit on your ass eating whatever and however much you want, smoking cigarettes because when you were young you wanted to be grown, and ignoring ALL of the info given to you throughout your life about nutrition, health, being active, and just taking care of your body.
We are either rewarded or punished for how we take care of ourselves. It’s up to us.

Social Media Fitness Game #getyoursexybackmoms

Thanks to the fabulous folks over at Get Your Sexy Back Moms I have been playing this fitness game every weekend to keep myself active on my off days.

It’s simple:

*become a liker of my Facebook page
*each weekend I’ll post a photo of an exercise like squats, pushups, burpees, etc.
*for every “like” the photo gets I will perform the exercise as described in the photo (example: 5 pushups per like or 20 second plank per like)
That’s all there is to it!
Here’s an example:
