I lost 2lbs this week! That means for the first time in I-don't-know-how-many-years I now weight under 190! In fact, the last time I was working out I got down to 192 so this is a pretty major milestone for me
As a reward, I downloaded a couch-to-5k podcast to my Zune (yes, I said Zune, it was a birthday gift 5 years ago and still works great TYVM!) I haven't run (on purpose) since they made me do it in high school PE classes. It's not like that was last year!
Then this afternoon my girl and I walked the mile to the playground and sat at a table so she could have her snack. There's a track around the playground (6 laps is 1 mile, according to the sign) so while she was wandering around I did the c25k workout! I did
It starts with a 5 minute walk then has intervals of 1 minute run and 90 second walk with a 5 minute walk after the 6th run. Oh, sure, I didn't run the full minute on most of the intervals, even skipped one completely. And I might be doing week 1 for more than 1 week but still... I finished it! And yeah I did have a pretty yucky asthma attack about 15 minutes after I finished but that's why I had my emergency inhaler in my pocket
But, still, I DID IT!
Of course, we still had to walk the mile home when she was done playing. My legs were a tad gel-like but it's all good
Now I need to go apologize to my son. Not only does he have Asperger's, he's also 16. He is arrogance and ignorance personified but I still shouldn't have said, "In 20 years you're going to think of all the garbage you've spewed out and think 'wow, I was really stupid'". And then left the room saying, "You're too full of crap. Just shut up." NOT a good mommy moment. I just sometimes can't handle his "everything I say is right because I said it and everyone in the world is stupid except me" attitude. It gets incredibly annoying! And tonight I snapped
