Bye bye double chin..Im running away from you!

Thursday, November 04, 2010

WOW this couch to 5k is a killer IMO!

I just did week 3 day 1!...the 3 min jog is rough! I did 90 sec paused for 30 sec to catch my breath!( I do have asthma) BUT I started right back into my jog :)

Day 1 done!!! I am so happy with myself emoticon emoticon

Just a recap of my stats for it:

3541 steps
1.742 miles
238 calories
28 minutes

IT Is a definite improvement over week 1!! I am going 1 mph faster on my walk and jog!! :) I was going to redo week 2 to build up to this 3rd week but went for it!

...THE NEXT 5 WEEKS LOOK ROUGH! I find it hard to believe I will one day run a 5k!



ALSO starting this past week or so actually taking FULL body shots and not hidding !! :)

    That is great! I, too, have asthma and find that if I keep my breathing in through my nose and out through my mouth steady it helps. I have started running and just finished week one. You are a great motivation, thank you for sharing.

    That is great! I remember starting the C25k and I thought I was going to die when I was running for 60 seconds. Now I am up to 25 minutes! It is great! I did a 5k yesterday, well I made my own up at home, and found out i was .6 milse off, but i did it in 35 min and 21 seconds. I had to walk some, but it gave me motivation and helped me get rid of that mental block. just remember 99% of it is mental! (my 17 year old brother, who's an athelete, always tells me that) It helps me out

Before and After photo of 50 lbs lost!

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

The day after I delivered my second daughter I was 248 lbs.... NOW 4 months postpartum I am 197! ....Still 20-30 lbs from my goal weight BUT very proud of what I have done so far!

When I was on spark people after my first daughter I got down to 185 (255-185 in 11 months) ...and well got pregnant again ;)

I have been watching what I eat...I gave up soda 3 months ago and never looked back! I have been walking /jogging more and chasing after two kids and (breastfeeding seems to be helping loose the weight)

I am training for couch to 5k...just finished week 2!

BUT check out this pic!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yay!!!! Congrats!!! That's awesome. I agree with Marty. When I went through my 'fat' clothes, I gave them away. It felt good to have them OUT of my house, never to be seen again. Because I NEVER want to be there again. I've lost 58 pounds, and I'm planning on KEEPING it off! :)

Congrats girl!!!! Oh btw, I noticed your end goal weight....I hope I'm not out of line, but I help run a Tall Chicks group, and most of our goal weights are right around I was thinking you might be a Tall Chick....:) If you are....we are a small group but with GREAT support and we understand what other tall chicks are going through. haha :) Check us out!

    Congratulations! A friend who lost a great deal of weight told me it is best to give the clothes away. That way you have no choice but to stay on the path. I plan to follow my friend's advice. Marty

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Well I am VERY proud of myself! I just completed week 1 day 3 of couch to 5k! I am so excited to say I am trying this challenge and HOPE /plan to run a 5k this upcoming year! I need to pick one to strive towards....Maybe one in march :)

I was horrible this weekend...had like 5 hotdogs in 2 days...and lots of white bread! ugh lol had a birthday party and a halloween party today. Oh well tomorrow is another day!

My goal for tomorrow (weather permitting) is to walk to a local playground with the girls...I mapped it out and it will be 1.4 mile round trip :)
