Well there was a time when I didn't think I would be writing this but here I am all finished! I first started almost a year ago and kept quitting for various reasons... too ill, a new puppy taking up my time, too cold, back ache, too tired, too busy, too etc. They all seemed valid at the time but now looking back I know I was trying hard to avoid hard work. Because getting started was hard for me. It was hard because instead of thinking about what I want from all this I focused on the difficulties. My mind worked super hard to convince me that what I was doing did not fit into my life 😮 it was a new habbit and exercising in general was a foreign concept to my body 😊 so I stopped. Completely. Then one day in August, two months after my last run, I was talking to a cousin of mine who started detailing the amount of work he does in preparation for a handball game. I was blown away! And there was I not even able to complete week 4! I was somehow so motivated that yet again I gave C25K another go and this time I did it. I listened to motivational speakers and I started to look into why some people succeed while others fail and studied (well read one book) the psychology of establishing a new habbit. This time I was more concious about the whole thing and it worked.
If you got this far in my post thank you for reading. And now please can someone tell me how to add 'graduate' next to my name? 😊
