Last year around this time I have decided to do something about my health and well-being. Over the course of the year I accumulated tons of fitness and diet apps, read countless blogs and experts' opinions etc. I was determined to break out of the vicious cycle of yoyo dieting and unhealthy habits. C25K seemed like something that I could do. I loved running when I was much, much younger and was ready to fall in love with it again.
So everything was ready but I still couldn't force myself to actually go outside and hit the road. I have commitment issues I guess. Finally I have set the date and promised myself I will do it. I was counting days until 1st August and couldn't wait to do it. Don't say 'best time to start a healthy habit is now' cause I am not that kind of guy. I like to have a set date, and when it approaches I just do it and don't look back. That's how I gave up smoking as well.
So yesterday morning I put my trainers on, prepared my app and podcast and got ready. Just about that time it started raining. Ok, little rain is not going to stop me so I thought. I went to my car and found the broken glass and some missing cash. I got robbed. Now this is a valid reason not to do it today, right? I went to local car service area, cleaned my car and put some tape over the window as a temporary measure.
But what actually surprised me, not even for a second I thought of giving up. I was still childishly exited to finally start my road to better self. And I did it. Not as I planed, cause I went to my threadmil instead of the local park (rain turned to showers), but important thing is I did it. And reading all these success stories helped me tremendously so thanks everyone! W1D1 over and out.
