The Need for Some Structure

Whether you are training for an Ironman or looking to just get rid of an extra 10 pounds, make yourself some goals. Fork out $5 for a fun little notebook that you can write your daily workouts in. Join an internet blogging group (hint, hint) that will keep you on track. Just do something that will make you dedicated to keeping yourself healthy.

For me, goals and structure are the most important things to keep me on track when trying to stay in a workout routine. We have set a goal. We have decided to run a marathon. More specifically we are going to run the Mayor's Marathon in Anchorage, Alaska on June 18th ( And now I have found some structure. I found a training schedule at (Who wouldn't trust this man to get you in shape?!) This was free, it works with my schedule, and it gives me something to cross off each day once I have accomplished my run. Training for a marathon, along with keeping active in general, has a lot to do with 'just pushing play' each day.

Time is a huge factor too, but in a survey done of people who did and didn't work out, both groups said time was the biggest factor making it hard for them to keep up with their schedule. Yet the group who did work out made this activity a priority and found the time.

Finally, support is other important factor. So in this vein of thought...

Get those pictures taken and those goals set!

I know you can get moving!

You can do it!
