Went jogging today

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Today I went jogging and I jogged for 30 minutes. This was only the third time I have ever done that so I'm very proud of myself! My pace was very slow; I wanted to ease myself into jogging again and I "only" jogged for 2.3 miles. My plan is to go jogging for 30 minutes three times a week and gradually start running faster and faster as my body get used to it and I get fitter. My goal is to be able to run a 5K in 30 minutes one day! I really love how challenging running is. I'm used to going for brisk walks and even though I walk almost as fast as I jogged today, it is so much tougher than walking! Afterwards you just feel great and so strong. I hope my legs aren't sore tomorrow though! I stretched properly once I was done so I should be okay.

I stayed within the lower end of my calorie range again today and I'm feeling pretty good about tomorrow's weigh-in. I don't want to get my hopes up as it's been less than a week since I last weighed myself and I had a couple of higher-calorie days after that as well. But I really hope to have lost a pound since last week! I would be sooo happy! We'll see how it goes.

    Take your time getting up to your goal. When you finally reach it, you'll wonder why it took so long and seemed so hard in the past.
