Knuckling Down!

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Well, I've been back on Spark now since New Year's Day and...for the first time in my life I seem to be sticking to a New Year's Resolution! I decided that I wanted to complete a Couch to 10K 'Learn to Run' program. I searched Google to find a plan and...lo and behold I was led straight back to Sparkpeople! Thanks for STLMary for sharing your plan emoticon

Tomorrow, I start week four of my training. Despite the fact that I'm not really enjoying it yet (and barely enduring it half the time!) somehow I find myself pulling on my trainers for each scheduled run/walk and getting out on the streets. I've been out in light, dark, wind, rain, ice and cold so far and nothing's made me give up!

I've also kept up with my regular gym classes - Zumba and Body Combat. I haven't yet been able to get to Pilates this year but that's been for genuine reasons so I'm still happy with myself.

On Monday, I'll start tracking my food & drink...this is going to be a challenge! January, in my family, is another celebration month with mine and my Mum's birthdays and Chinese New Year. Our Chinese feast is tonight, which means leftovers tomorrow! On Monday, it's time to cut the portions down and reduce my rubbish intake. This won't be easy as there's temptations and peer pressure everywhere but it's necessary and I am going to commit 100% to getting healthy and fighting the flab!

As always, my wonderful Spark friends and this amazing web community is inspiring are all so awesome and positive, it's impossible not to be infected by the can-do healthy attitude on here - so THANK YOU so much for reading and for sharing your journeys with me, I KNOW that I couldn't do this without you xxxx
