Jogging for the first time EVER

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

I am just so proud of myself--yesterday I went for my daily 2 mile walk with my daughter and was able to jog a little of the way. I NEVER thought I would be able to do that--I would get out of breath walking quickly , but now I can walk for a bit then jog for a bit and alternated like that for most of our walk--and I wasn't feeling like I was going to have a heart attack :D My plan is to be able to jog the whole way eventually but that is a ways off--for now I am happy to be able to jog/walk.
I also weighed myself this morning and lost 6 pounds :D!!! My coat wasn't too tight to zip up either. And this is only the first week and a half!!

    Good for you on both counts. It's a strange thing when you feel like breaking out in a trot isn't it - you quite surprise yourself! I love your snake skin background here and your little happy dance emoticon

week one

Friday, March 02, 2012

Just about a week into this and still feeling pretty excited with the idea of getting healthy. I've been trying to exercise every day, the rowing machine and talking walks with my daughter. I am even considering getting the bike out of the basement and taking it for a ride :P

I also did something crazy--something I would never have even let cross my mind in the past because the idea of it was just too horrific...I bought a SCALE. I even got on it (after threatening it with foul language and very mean looks) and saw I had lost 3 pounds :D

This week was pretty fun if I must say so myself!
