Updates All Around

Thursday, May 23, 2013


I sort of fell of the band wagon with blog writing. Not being able to do it on my phone makes it difficult but I will try to get better about it. I am proud to say that I finished Week 1 of C25K and am almost finished with Week 2. Week 1 really wasn't that bad. Day 1 of Week 2 was another story. It was def. harder and I had to push mentally to get through it. HOWEVER! Day 2 was easier all things considered. I had really contemplated pushing my day 2 until the next day because I had had a paper to write and it was 5:30 by the time I got to the gym. I was not in the mood and I was starting to feel crappy from my allergies. Nevertheless I made it to the gym. The first 7 mins were not pretty because I kept complaining in my head and just really beating myself. I finally had had it and said listen, you're here, you're getting a workout, now shut up and just do it. Think about your goals and why you want to be there. After my mini pep talk it was A LOT easier. Again, not a walk in the park, but I didn't feel like I was going to die.

I am proud to say that up until today I have been to the gym every day this week. Today was different because I am watching my cousins so I wasn't able to get a workout in after class and before I had to be there. BUT! I am still really proud of myself. Spark people has my weekly calorie burn at 650, and I am already at 1107 so I am blowing it out of the water!!!

Overall I feel really good. I have more energy, I feel like I am getting more accomplished in my days instead of just wasting hours either in bed or on the couch. I have routine. I am learning that I like routines!

I have lost about a pound though it doesn't show on my tracker because I thought m starting weight was different than it actually was, but I know that I lost it and that means more to me to know that I did.

I also have discovered a new 5K that I want to train for. I am planning on doing the Color Run in October already, but I found out about a new one. I work at a renaissance faire in the summer and we are hosting a 5k called the KNight's Quest 5k. It is the perfect combination of every 5k because it will have color, mud, obstacles, MEDIEVAL ZOMBIES!, and flames for you to jump over!!! I am sooooo pumped for this 5k that it makes me even more determined!

Happy Sparking!

    I'm really proud of you for pushing through. For finding a way to overcome that inner smack talker. Phone issues make your journey harder right now. Hopefully, we can get it fixed this weekend. Love you girl!

    Congrats on getting through week 1 and for pushing through the start of week 2! It is almost as hard mentally at times as it is physically! Being able to push yourself and to get it done is a big deal. Way to go!

    That Knight's Quest 5k sounds really interesting and fun! Might have to look into that one myself!
