Couch to 5K
Alright Ladies, so about two weeks ago I started the couch to 5k program. For those of you who don't know its a 9 week walking/jogging app. The purpose is to over 9 weeks gradually get you to were you can run a 5k or 30 minutes straight. My first day I had SERIOUS doubts. I injured my foot back in October and by the end of the session I could barley bare weight on my foot. I was in near tears thinking I physically can't do this. I'm too heavy and my foot can't take the pressure, but I stuck with it. So I reached the end of the 1st week and post it on facebook and I mentioned that I thought I would repeat week 1 because I didn't feel like I was ready to advance. My friend told me to go ahead with week 2. She said I would be surprised at what I can do. SHE WAS RIGHT! Tonight I did the 2nd day of week 2 and I had never felt better. I had energy and I was PROUD of myself. My foot doesn't even hurt!! Even though its early in the program, I feel I have made a huge accomplishment! Between the 2 weeks of the program and trying really hard at portion control I am down 7 pounds...7 freakin pounds people! I can't believe it. I just am beyond happy. But there is always a catch...see no matter how happy I am with myself on a diet or exercise, when the going gets tough, I quit. I love to quit. Nothing makes me happier then giving up on something hard. Sounds so stupid, but it's the honest truth. So this is were I need YOUR help. To anyone that reads my blog or that is friends with me on Facebook. I need you to keep me accountable. I don't want to quit this, I want a happier healthier lifestyle. I need this for Hayden and any other children that come my way. If you haven't seen a c25K post from me on facebook, I need you to ask me what's up. I need encouragement to keep going!!! My goal is to finish the program and MAYBE one day actually run a 5K!!!
