My First 5K
Sunday, June 23, 2013
On Saturday, I completed in my first 5k. I was not doing so good but I made it through! It was such an amazing sense of accomplishment but now, my feet feel like they are going to fall off every time I walk :(
I was pretty bad yesterday because I ended up eating 4 meals because of my schedule with the race. Then in the morning I went and had 2 CANDY BARS. I talked to my husband and asked him to make sure I kind of steer clear of the double candy bars from now on. I just need to really watch what I am doing.
He made a point in that he can't tell me which choices to make and I can't depend on him for someone to blame if I make the wrong choices. But he will support me and love me and is proud of me for all the steps I've taken so far. I've thought a lot this week about the gym and my 12 hour work days. So we've decided on Mondays, Tuesdays when I get off work at 6pm, we're going to take Bailey for a walk for about an hour, then come home and have dinner. On Wednesdays - Saturdays, I have the days off so we will be going to the gym to do strength training and swimming/or other forms of cardio. Sundays are my day off because of both of our schedules those days. So it only really gives me two days of strength training but I also have my resistance band I can take to work on Mondays to add a third day in there.
We bought a lot of groceries and I have meals planned out for the next two weeks. i'm excited for all the changes and I know I'm going to stick to it this time.
Anyway, I've also put in pictures of me and my friend Jenn before and after the Color Me Rad 5k
