My 42 Week Challenge!

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

So I have given myself a 42 week Challenge as the title

My Challenge is to be able to run 5 miles straight AND to have lost at least 40 lbs.

And I know some people thing putting a number to your weight isn't good and I kinda agree but I know that 40 lbs would put me at 140 which is a healthier size for me. I haven't been that size in about 7 years now I think?.

But anyways. Why 42 weeks you might ask.....well.....the hubby and I are seriously thinking of going to Aruba for our July vacation next year (a little over 42 weeks)!!!! So excited. I have never been out of country besides to Canada and NEVER to the Caribbean! (did I spell that wrong?!

So because we are going to Aruba (as of now, plans could change), I HAVE to be able to comfortably wear a bathing suit on the beach so in order for that to happen I gotta lose the weight! I would HATE to go to the beach and be wearing jeans and tshirts because I am self concious about my body/weight.

About the running 5 miles straight....I do really like to run but I am just so out of shape I can't do it for every long. I want to be able to just run and not get super winded. I want to be one of those people that can run and run and hardly get tired.

To obtain that challenge I am doing the Rookie Running program on here. Started Day 2 today! It wasn't to bad. I can't wait to do it again on Friday!

And sorry this is all jubbled together. I just wanted to post this really quick before I go to bed....Kinda tired!

Thanks for reading! Hope to have a better blog about my 42 Week Challenge soon!
