So last night I completed W3D1 of the C25K program! I was really nervous about the two 3 minute runs, but I decided to just go out there and give it a shot! I managed to complete the whole session and I returned home very proud of myself! The weather was perfect while I was out there on the track. There were the big puffy white clouds with rays of sunshine peaking through along with the perfect room-temperature breeze. It was one of the best days I have run on yet! I will never forget my first run on W1D1 though. I decided that I would give this program a shot at like 10 p.m. one night and went out there and did it! It was raining a light consistent rain, yet I still pushed myself to see the whole session through! It was a night I will never forget. Very empowering!
Today is Wednesday, and that means its wing night at the local bar. My fiancé really wants to go; he was kind of convinced to go from our friend that we hung out with last night. We had a Wii tennis match that lasted a looong time with our friends last night and my arm is in a little of pain today from it! I really want a Wii and I think that I might make that one of my weight-loss rewards! I have been patiently waiting for them to go down in price, but they aren’t budging much! I think that it would be a good investment. It is a fun group activity and promotes health in a way! Along with Wii Sports, they also have Wii Fit in which I think I would enjoy as well! I am really talking myself in to this purchase!
Tonight, instead of going to the bar, I am going to grill chicken tenderloins on the grill. I also have to go grocery shopping. I actually have not eaten breakfast yet and didn’t pack a lunch because of the lack of groceries! Not good!! I am going to probably run up to McDonalds on my lunch break for a salad for lunch. I have an apple to eat this morning to hold me over and I am probably going to start munching on that shortly!
Since I ran my W3D1 yesterday, I do not want to go out for a run tonight. I should let me muscles rest for a day before getting back out on the track, but I know that I will not be able to do W3D2 tomorrow because I am meeting my Maid of Honor right after work to go shopping for bridesmaid jewelry. My next run may have to wait for Friday.
Tonight I am going tanning for the second time this week! I just started tanning for my wedding and I bought a really expensive unlimited package but its going to be worth it because the tanning salon is really close to my home and I will get more use out of it! I still hate spending $80.00 on a tan that I could get out in the sun, but tanning in the booths is safer than the actual sun! When I arrived at the tanning salon on the first day I told the cashier that I had not been tanning in 3 years and she was absolutely shocked and said that she couldn’t go a week without tanning! I was in turn shocked because wow, that’s just not good for you to go that much for that long! I only tan for major events… prom was the last time I went tanning, actually. It’s just too expensive to do on a regular basis like that!
Well, here I thought that I wouldn’t have much to say in todays blog but it turned out pretty long. Anyhow… if you are reading this, which you are… have a GREAT day and keep working toward your goals each and every day!!
