I am 11 days past my birthday and 354 days from the next. It took me about a week to jump on the exercise bandwagon.
Tomorrow will be one week from the start of my couch to 5k. Yesterday I skipped my day to run. I put it off in the morning then I went to swim/relax by the pool. If I was truly swimming then I would have had an excuse. By the time I got home, I just wasn't in the mood to run. I am a little disappointed in my lack of will. Today, I got up to make up day 3.
For me this is a big step. In the past when I would deviate from a plan, I would give up. So NOT giving up today. This is a huge step in the right direction. Tomorrow I will do day 4.
I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER WHEN I GET OFF THE TREADMILL. I don't want to push it, but I feel like I can do more. Maybe a second run in the day?
Now the next aspect of weight loss is diet. I have done fair in the food department. I have snacked and not eaten as well as I would like. So this weeks goal. in addition to running is to eat better. 3 meals a day, light healthy snacks. This is going to take just as much work as working out. I am a comfort food girl.
This morning on the Today show was a woman who lost 110 pounds in 6.5 months by eating well and working out 4 times a week. She looked great. They showed the amount of fruits and veggies she eats now compared to before. Her before is similar to my now. If she can do it, I can too, right?
