I started running two years ago on and off again because my brother inspired me to. The first time I started running, I absolutely hated it, I wound up with a splitting headache. After that I didn't really want to keep running, but something in me persisted. Now I am actually excited when I get the chance to run. I put on some of my favorite music, put my headphones in, and get to it.
I know it can be an effective tool to deal with feelings of depression, while I feel like it helps, I mostly run because it feels good to exercise. The 'runner's high' is real I can attest to that. I run mostly when it's warmer, but weather here likes to change pretty fast. I really didn't exercise much this Winter (which I regret) and now that it's rolling into Spring I'm really anxious to get back at it.
On that note I have a few questions.
1. Has anyone ever exercised in a diaper? I assume it would be better not to, hence the fact that I don't.
2. What are some things I can do to cope better and push past feelings of being unmotivated?
3. What are some tips for preparing for GED classes? From what I know the program I'm going through is a one on one type of thing, but I'm not 100% sure.
4. Lastly, my BMI is 25.1 which would suggest that for my age, gender, and height I am overweight. Yet... I'm still pretty thin. I think regardless I'm going to make it my goal to lose 10 pounds. One of my brother's and my dad struggle with weight issues (though my dad is actually improving, case in point I can pick him up). I really just don't want to go down the road of being fat. Does 10 pounds seem like too much to lose? I mean within an appropriate amount of time of course.
