I finished Week 3 of C25K on Saturday. It was tough. The first three minute run was okay. I actually felt pretty good at the end of it. But I barely made it through the second three minute run. I tried to do Day 1 of Week 4 last night but failed miserably! I was… Continue reading Couch to 5K Update
I gained weight this week. 😦 I'm pretty frustrated with this. I worked out every day this week except for Thursday. I stuck to my diet. I feel like I lost weight. And I feel like I should have lost weight! But when I stepped on the scale it said 227! I gained 0.4 pounds. My… Continue reading Weekly Weigh-in
On Wednesday Heidi and I did our first day of strength training! We used all the arm machines in the gym at the highest weight we could handle (which wasn't a lot!). We did two sets of 10 reps. It was hard! I didn't realize how weak I was! Stronger than Heidi though, which was… Continue reading Sore Today, Strong Tomorrow!
I haven't been skipping a day between C25K sessions. Oops. So far it hasn't bothered me though. Yesterday I ran Week 3 Day 1. It's 1 1/2 minutes of running, 1 1/2 minutes walking, then 3 minutes running, 2 minutes walking. Twice. I ran the whole thing!! I thought I was going to die. But… Continue reading Strength training. Help?
I have discovered a new favorite gym activity! The rock climbing wall! How have I never used this before?? It's like a treadmill rock wall. Like, it spins, so you can keep climbing for however long you want without getting too high. It was little scary at first. And every now and then I wouldn't… Continue reading Rock Climbing!
I was actually excited to weigh in today. I've had a great week (aside from the milkshake incident). I've stayed well within my calorie allotment and weight watchers points. I didn't eat any of my weekly or activity points. I went to the gym 5 days for at least an hour and a half each… Continue reading Weekly Weigh-in

Ingredients: Large portobello mushroom cap (remove stem) Olive oil spray Salt, pepper, garlic powder Mozzarella cheese Pizza sauce Turkey pepperoni Red onion Directions: Use a cookie sheet… Continue reading Portobello Cap Pizza
Wednesday after work I went to they gym to start Week 2 of Couch to 5K. I was feeling nervous about running for 1 minute and 30 seconds, but not too much, since my last day of Week 1 went so well. I get to the gym and choose a treadmill and get started on… Continue reading My milkshake…. (doesn’t bring any boys around)
So I was off work from both jobs today. I slept in. Way in. I didn't get up until about 11:30! (Don't judge me! Lol. I rarely ever get a day off from both jobs!) When I finally rolled out of bed I took my time getting around. I watched the most recent episode of… Continue reading Beautiful Day
I finished Week 1 of Couch to 5K yesterday. Day 3 was a lot easier than Day 2 was! I didn't have a problem finishing the runs at all. I'm pretty excited to start Week 2! It's a minute and a half running and 2 minutes walking repeated 6 times. When I started this program… Continue reading I-I-I work out!
