W2d1

Well, tonight I did W2D1 outside with my boyfriend. He's such a super guy!!! He hasn't been running or exercising recently...and he gets on the treadmill the other day and runs for like 8 minutes straight...did I say he was wonderful or a show-off?! All kidding aside, I called him one day and told him I wanted to do a 5K in October, and I wanted him to do it with me. He didn't hesitate for a second. He's so great. He's never had a weight problem in his life, but everyone around him does. He's very supportive!!! We've been together forever, and I just love him.

So, I asked him if he wanted to do my W2D1 workout with me, and he agreed. Again, he can run circles around me. So, he out ran me each time but circled around to check on me after each running segment. I surprised myself a little bit. I had basically talked myself into redoing W1 again, but I decided to try W2's schedule first and see how it goes. It went ok. It was difficult, but I finished it. We walked an extra mile after the run too just to burn some extra calories. I'm proud of myself for sticking with this. I know, it's only the start of week two, but normally I would have given up at this point because it isn't easy. I'm not sure what's motivating me...Disney, the 5k, or c23k program? But, I like it so far.

Today was my friday off at work, so I didn't get to weigh in, but I don't think anything changed there. Tomorrow morning, we are headed to the farmer's market to get some yummy fruits and veggies. I just need to go to sleep so I can get up in the morning. Good night all, I hope yall have had a blessed week. Enjoy your weekend.

W2D2 Complete

Last night Scott and I went to the gym and he ran forever while I did my jog/walk routine. I was nervous about it for some reason, but I read a great artical about proer breathing for new runners. It helped so much. I will post the link on here as soon as I find it again. So, I completed W2D2 and felt a bit dizzy afterward. I think it's because I don't drink enough water throughout the day. One of these days I will learn that I'm going to have to do that. :-S

Hey there, thanks for checking on me. I need to do an update...thanks for the gentle push! :P

I have finished W2D3 of the C25K!!! And, surprisingly, it was relatively easy. I've been working on my breathing lately and trying to improve that. I'm a bit nervous about W3, but tonight is the night, so I'm going to give it a try!

Now, let me update my goals:
1) Run the Cross Roads 5k on October 1, 2011 --> completed W2D3 on Monday, July 4th ( that was over a week ago, man how time flies)
2) Get down to 195 lbs before the end of June ---> Ha, well, I'm in July, so this goal didn't happen. However, I am -2 pounds at 197 this morning!!! Woo who!!!
3) Get into a size 14 by July ---> no change here, but I have a pair of jeans that are getting so loose.
4) Run/jog 3 days this week; walk or other kind of exercise 2 days during the week ---> Ha, judging by the face used in goal #1, I need to work on this one. I'm going to the gym right after work tonight.
5) Eat healthier---> I've been doing pretty good lately. I am going out for lunch today, but I will try and not over do it and come up with the best options on the menu.

I hope yall have a wonderful day!!!

Those are some awesome goals! I need to update mine as well...I just haven't had the motivation the last week...my job is just zapping it out of me! Well, that and some other non-motivators. Family related nonsense. I won't get into it now, though!

Can't wait to hear your update!!

W3D1 Done!

It's been a while since I have posted or exercised! But last night I made myself go. And I was able to complete the W3D1 of the C25K program. I purchased the app on my blackberry, and it it awesome. I love it so much. I just wait for the light to change colors so I can walk again. It's that time for me right now, so I haven't weighed in over a week. I will plan on weighing monday at work. We'll see how that goes. I'll post what that number is.

Tomorrow I'm heading to my home town to see my brother and his family and my dad. They don't really know that I've been working towards running for a 5k and 1/2 marathon, so we'll see how that goes. I hope to get to see my Aunt Charlo tomorrow too.

I hope yall are having a great Friday. And I hope yall have a safe weekend. Keep cool!

W3D2 Done

So, I just got back from the gym with Scott. He was able to run an extra minute this time...meaning he's up to 13 minutes straight now......SHOW OFF! I did challenge myself a little and added two extra 1.5 minutes sessions of running. And, it didn't bother me too much. The first minute and a half was the worst because of my breathing. My chest was real tight and I just couldn't get a deep breath. But, on the 1.5 minute walk, I was able to catch my breathe and finished much better.

I have jury duty tomorrow...yay! This is my first time to ever be called, so I'm a bit nervouse just because I don't know what to do. Oh well, I know I will get through it.

This weekend was a nice weekend, my brother and his family drove into my hometown, and Scott and I did too. It was a really fun time. We spent time with my grandma, my dad, my aunt Charlo, and my uncle Roland. We had a really nice visit. The kids swam in the pool. Hannah, my neice is such a precious and sweet girl. Lane, my nephew is a bit of a toot, but he sure is smart. Tyler, my oldest nephew was with his dad, so we didn't get to see him. I missed seeing him. I saw a very good friend from Junior High at Fuentez (mexicna restaurant). It was so nice to see her. It felt like old times catching up with her.

Well, that was my weekend. I hope yall had a great weekend as well. I'll weigh in at the office as soon as I get there. I'll let you know how it goes.

A few updates

So, I came here to give an update on the session that I did last night and realized that I never said anything about W3D3. Well, I finised it without any problesm or issues...yay!!!!

Two nights after that, I tried W4D1...and failed miserably. I got a cramp after the 5 minute jog. I was so disappointed.

Last night I picked myself up and thought I'd tried it again...and I was able to finish it!!! Yay!!! I was SLOW, but I was able to finish it. YAY!!!

I don't have any other updates at the moment. I hope to be telling you that I have a new number on the scale soon. My smaller pants are getting looser...still the same size, but they don't have any "stretch" in them, so they fit tighter. PROGRESS!!! :D

I completed week 4 day 2 tonight. I oversplept, so I ran immediately after work today. I struggled again. This time I mainly struggled with my breathing and keeping my mind on track. I keep telling myself that I can't do it and nearly talked myself out of running at all tonight. At the end of my 45 minutes, i had gone 2.66 miles, so that's a plus for sure. Thank God there is some kind of silver lining to the workout. I plan to do a couple of yoga classes in the morning in my living room. I hope it is a good day tomorrow.

So, I actually got up this morning (early) and completed Week4 again. I woke up at 5 and was at the gym by 5:30. I'm hoping it will become easier with time (to get up earlier that is). I was able to finish the full cycle with only a little struggle today. I also walked out the rest of the 45 mins and finished with a distance of 2.69. Yay, a little more progress!!

Last night, Scott and I ran at the college at 9:30PM and it was still 95 degrees. It was hot, hot, hot. But we finished Week4 Day3. We both struggled with the 5 minute runs, and we both agreed that we could have walked faster than we were running...BUT we finished. I felt so good afterwards!!!

I also went and got some Brooks Running Shoes earlier in the day and so far, I like them. I am excited about them. I hpe everyone is having a blessed weekend.

W5d1

This morning I got up early and headed to the gym to do W5D1 which consists of:

Walk 5 mins
Jog 5 mins
Walk 3 mins
Jog 5 mins
Walk 3 mins
Jog 5 mins

So, I was able to finish this run as scheduled, and then I finished walking the remaining amount of time (45 minutes). I did get a bit of a cramp after the third 5 minute session, so I walked after that. My distance improved a little again...woo who!!! My distance was 2.72 miles after 45 minutes.

W5D2 Done!!!

Saturday night I went to the gym (with my new running shoes)



W5D2 schedule is:

Walk 5 mins
Jog 8 mins
Walk 5 mins
Jog 8 mins

I had to cut each run down by about 30 seconds, but I did make myself run for another 3 minute interval during the last 15 minutes of my workout. Remember, I always set the clock to 45 minutes and walk the remaining time. My distance was 2.72. Woo who!!! It's progress!!!
