It's easy to put everyone ahead of yourself, especially when you're a mom. After I'm done juggling work, preschool, appointments and the day-to-day business of raising quadruplets, I'm exhausted. I haven't been taking care of myself, either. For awhile, I was really good about getting some exercise. I felt good. Then I missed a workout... and then a few more... and suddenly, I've been feeling UGH.
So, this Mother's Day, I made a promise to myself. I'm going to do a better job of taking care of myself. I'm going to exercise more. I'm going to eat better... and when I don't, I'm not going to beat myself up over it.
To this end, I've begun the Couch to 5K program. Yesterday was my first workout. It was manageable and I felt like I accomplished something. I haven't run in years. The goal of the program is to be able to run a 5K (or three miles) at the end of eight weeks. It's a combination of jogging and walking and it's suggested you only do it three times a week. I can commit to that. Having one workout under my belt, I already feel good and I'm ready for the next one. Wish me luck.
