5 weeks!

Saturday, March 03, 2012

Well starting Monday, I will be on my fifth week of exercise, fitness and healthy eating.

My period started on Thursday and knocked me for a wallop cramp-wise so I haven't worked out since Wednesday.

Although I didn't work out as much as I wanted to this past week, I did make a few purchases. Hehe. emoticon I bought a set of 8lb dumbbells, a jump rope (to fulfill my jumping challenges) and a resistance band. I also ordered my yoga mat and bag. I am so excited! Now I have beginning things to do strength training with after my walk/runs.

Monday will be the first day I start training myself to run. I'll be using the Walk/Run and C25K models of walking for several minutes and then running for a minute (increasing this minute for each successive week). This training will replace my morning workouts at the gym. And if I don't wake up early enough for the walk/run, off to the gym I go. Nice contingency plan.

That's my update for now emoticon

    A loto times when I get cramps, if I exercise anyway they go away within the first 10 minutes and stay gone for hours. Try it, it might help you too.
