Running. Yes I'm trying again! Again!

I'll start by saying I stayed the same.  Again!  Last week I lost 0.8 lbs, the week before that I stayed the same.  I've been tracking, but not eating so well, grabbing crap at work, having a cheeseburger at McDonalds, etc...  I haven't been exercising either.

Now some of that is because the kids have been acting up at bedtime, some of that is because of various injuries/illnesses in the past few weeks, but really I've been lazy, I could have squeezed something in somewhere.

So.  With these crappy losses lately, a 5k and a too tight bridesmaid dress looming, I need to get my butt in gear!  Tonight my sister and I went for a run, and I ran almost an entire km!  A big deal for me!  We got to a certain road after doing a quick walk to warm up.  We started running and my goal was to run as far as I could.  So I did.  2 whole blocks!  Then we walked a block and started running again.  Another 2 blocks!  Then we walked home from there.  My ankle was fine, my knee that I could barely walk on after my last run a month ago felt fine.  I like the idea of just running instead of following the c25k.  This feels more natural.  I think I can do this.

What a difference a little progress can make!  I was feeling quite down after the crap weigh in this afternoon!

  1. That's great! I finally got my butt in gear and worked out this morning after an 8 day hiatus. It feels good.
    I have followed about 3 different learn to run programs, and they all worked. The basic point is to gradually start running. I don't think your body cares if you do 3 minutes of running with one walking or if you run 10 minutes in a row, as long as you don't overdo it...
