I went jogging for the first time in a long time this past Saturday. I felt like I needed to start running again since I signed up for a 5K at the end of March. It was such a beautiful day outside, with the birds hanging out at the lake and the squirrels running all over creation. It was so great to finally get to run outside, and I actually made it almost the entire 1.5 mile. I started walking around the 1.35 mile area, so I was pretty impressed with myself. The only thing was that I was completely wiped out the rest of the day. Like, for real wiped out - I had absolutely no energy and I felt like my body was just going to collape. That next morning when I woke up, I seriously just barely was able to get out of the bed. My lungs could take the 1.5 miles, but my muscles were far from being able to do that comfortably.
I haven't really lost any weight since I reached the 13 pound mark. Not really sure why, but I'll just keep on trying. Working out and eating right help, but I may need to boost my motivation somehow. Any suggestions?
