I'm doing the Couch to 5K plan to get me started on the right path. We do 1 mile 2 x a week, then 1 1/2 miles on Saturdays...each week this increases until we're running more & more & up to 3 miles. I drink pretty much nothing but water except for my 2 cups of coffee in the mornings. And I'm trying to incorporate more fruits into my diet & eat a little more healthier, but I'm not going to try to change too much all at once or I know I'll give up. Hoping as I go along my eating habits will continue to improve. Hoping I can become healthier and lose weight & in time come off my meds.
In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
I have been here about a week. I have high blood pressure & high cholesterol. I start the Couch to 5K program this Tuesday. Hoping to lose some weight and become healthier out of this. I am so tired of taking medication. I hope to eventually be able to come off medications. I am 47 and 40 pounds overweight and pretty much a couch potato right now. Hoping I become a runner out of this and start living a healthier life so I can look and feel better.
