My first day back to running was good. I usually don't have a problem with Week 1 of C25K. It's everything after that that's tough! I was on the treadmill, but hope to run outside this weekend. I'm enjoying the FitBit too, and finding it nice to see the difference between an "active" and a "lazy" day. I have been tired a lot too, because Keira has been having some trouble at night recently.

I've lost 4.2 lbs since starting the DietBet (though a lot of that was TOM bloat). So I'm happy about that!

The office has been busy too, which is kinda sad since I'm scaling it back to a part-time operation. But for every client that I enjoy working with, there are like a dozen others either trying to scam the system or don't understand that I need to get paid to help them. It will nice to accept only the cases that I want to take, and if immigration reform happens, at least I will have everything in place to help people (though of course it will be a lot more work!). I start my new job on Monday and I've been told that after the initial training and getting the hang of things, it will be a pretty easygoing job, which I think is what I need now.

Sounds like you are off to a great start. I'm currently finishing my first week of a different program called soemthing like Develop a 30 minute running habit in 3 weeks -- I've found it to be a little more tolerable than the whole C25k program (at least so far!).
Have a good week!

    Gorgeous Mommy and Daughter!!

I'm happy for you about getting back to running. I was amazed how much easier c25k was for me last summer when I did it (for the 5th time). It was over so quick and I was off! Now I'm coming back from 4 weeks off after taking those scary antibiotics that make you rupture your achilles tendon while taking it. I had my first run on Easter and it was tough but felt good. I'm pretty sore, so I decided to just try two runs this first week back!

Keep up the good work lady! I hope that little cutie gets her sleep together soon. I hated those phases we'd get into with night waking. *shudder as I remember those days*

    You are doing great - For week 2's C25K runs - dedicate each run time to someone who you want to motivate to do more in their lives or to someone who motivates you to do more in your life. Just concentrate on that person. It will be easier

    Good job on getting back to running! Which FitBit did you get? I've been thinking about getting one and I'm not sure which one, or if I want to wait for the one coming out next month. I would be curious about your feedback. :)

    Love the picture of you and your beautiful girl!! So glad that it sounds like the new job will be a perfect fit for you and where you are at right now...and so happy you'll be able to keep your private practice running on the side because I know how awesome it must feel to help your clients navigate a tricky immigration AND legal system. Can't even imagine the red tape involved there...WHEW!

Way to go on day 1 of C25k! You're back at it, girl!!! WOOHOO!!
