That's how I started off, too. XD I'd just throw on some clothes and go jogging until I was too tired to jog any further. Needless to say, running over sidewalks, uphill and downhill, with no specific goal in mind, didn't do too well for me.

I've been starting off by going to the gym twice a week. I know that it doesn't sound like much, but considering that I've never been in good shape...

The workouts are short, too, only about 15 minutes each. But I make those minutes count. I started off by telling myself "either make it to 1 mile or 15 minutes, whichever comes SECOND". Then it was "1.5 miles or 15 minutes, whichever comes SECOND". That mentally has definitely helped.

I can't wait until I move off-campus. I'll be right next to the apartment complex's gym, so I want to bump it up to 3 days per week, and 20-30 minute workouts every day. I'd like to get to 1.5 miles in 15 minutes, maybe even 2 miles in 20 minutes, by the end of the summer.
