After a few months of throwing myself an extensive pity party any time I had to put on “real clothes”, I’ve decided to get it back together and focus on my fitness. It’s been daunting. For so long I kept thinking, “I’m going to wait until I’m in better shape to do [that thing that is specifically intended to help me get in shape, like FlyWheel or OrangeTheory]”. And then I read this article and saw this:
Run, walk, or hike your way to three miles a day, or do a 30-minute workout instead.
3 miles? Doable. 30 minutes? That’s nothing — I can spare that time.
I had been making my return to a “healthy lifestyle” so complicated. I kept treating it like I would have to completely overhaul my life, but the reality is that I just need to make the time and make small, consistent changes day-by-day. So the next time you’re feeling defeated by your big fitness plans, just remember 3 or 30.
