Newbie - Just turned 39, need more energy

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm Julie, a single mom of 3 boys. A few years ago, I lost about 40 pounds through exercise and eating healthy, but have since gained about 20 of that back. I'm still at a "healthy" weight, but I just don't feel like I'm in great shape, and I know I could feel better. It would be great to drop a couple dress sizes, but I'd love to have more energy and be able to keep up with my boys!

Exercise has always been a struggle for me, especially any kind of running. It's my least favorite thing. I've seen so many of my friends from high school get into running, and have run several marathons, etc., and someone I've been dating (6 years older than me) posted about running a 10K for his birthday in 3 months. So, I figure it's the perfect time for me to start working toward that goal!

This will probably be the hardest thing for me to stick to, so I'll be looking for motivation on a daily basis, I'm sure! I'll also be struggling to find time with my 3 boys at home all summer, and then when the school year starts for me as a teacher. Suggestions on motivation, good music, scheduling, etc. Is always welcome!
