Tackle the Tough Mudder ...and Make Fitness Part of My Lifestyle

I want to live a lifestyle where healthy eating and exercise are just another thing I do everyday.  I dont want a stressfull trend diet or some brutal workout schedule to reach a goal.  All it does is cause anxiety and adds to my low self esteem.  I set a goal this year to do whatever it takes to build healthy habits and part of that goal was taking it slow and really, really being honest with myself about what I can and can not do.  I got my first smartphone for Christmas and downloaded the fitocracy app and when I heard about this class I thought it was totally in line with what I was trying to achieve.  Then, just the other day, I was asked to join a team and participate in Tough Mudder.  I decided that it's a sign and everything is coming together, so here I am.

More specific goals for myself are:

to eat a healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday.  I am really, really bad about breakfast and lunch and I know it dooms my physical fitness goals.  

to stop being afraid of upper body workouts- I can run for miles and do squats til the cows come home, but I think that chest soreness is the most horrible soreness ever.  When I've tried to work out and lift weights before, I always gave up when the initially chest soreness started, so, you know, I gave up right away.  

My third goal is to get through the Tough Mudder this year.  I still can't believe I signed up for it, but someone asked me to join their team, and I felt like having a concrete date that I had to get my butt in gear by would be beneficial.
