Wow. This feels great! I am doing this and I can't tell you how great it feels. I lost again, 1.4, it feels amazing. I love stepping on the scale and seeing the number go down, for real this time.
Today after work I got home, and was relaxing on the couch and I felt lazy! I hated that I hand't done anything good for me. I was sitting on Pinterest pinning lots of inspirational stuff when I said to myself, just get off your ass, roll out the treadmill and get on it!
So I did.
And I had been thinking about doing Couch to 5K for a bit and I finally looked it up. I really want to improve my running, and it's such a great work out too. I wrote down the program (see below) and hopped on.
For week one, the program is as follows:
5 min- walking warm up (2.5)
1 min- jogging (3.5)
1.5 min- walking (2.5)
and repeat for a total of 20 min (6 times jogging)
The first time jogging felt good, but I was really out of breath. I didn't quite catch it by the second time I had to jog, and it freaked me out, but I pushed through. After I got through that one, I kept doubting that I could do the rest. I am home alone, so no one would know if I just skipped one, or walked a little longer, but I would know. And as the clock ticked closer 3...2...1... I just did it. I hiked the speed back up and I was jogging, and it felt great.
After the 20 minutes, I feel high and giddy! I used to say I would only run if I was being chased, but now I know I can run because it feels good.
God it sounds like I have been doing it for years, I am just really pumped (hence the whole high/ giddy thing)
Good bye 275 lbs me!
