In June ...

Saturday, June 01, 2013

In the beautiful month of June now and I have big plans for this month! emoticon

I would really like to see my weight come down to 66kg (145 pounds) by the end of June. This means I will have to lose 5kg (11 pounds) this month - so definitely no slacking off!

My other big goal for June is that I am going to, gulp, start running! emoticon
Running is something that I have never enjoyed or succeeded at but lately I have found myself wanting to break into a run sometimes on the treadmill. I have also seen how much so many people seem to enjoy it and I know that I can do it if I put my mind and my heart into it. So I have bought myself a good pair of running shoes and I am just going to go for it! I think I will start with just short bursts of running in each work out and then build up from there (so I don't scare myself off! emoticon ). If anyone has any advice for me about beginning to run I would really, really appreciate it!

Here's to an amazing month of June for all of us! emoticon

    way to go setting goals! You can do this! The DH loves running. He started by walking, and he would walk for x blocks and run for 1 block to start with. After that, he would reduce the number of blocks he walked and increase the number he would run. Before I knew it I had a runner as a DH and not my cute pudgey DH. . . I miss his cute little pudgey belly...but he feels great about himself and so I feel great about him!

    Hope it helps! emoticon

    Great goals. You can do it! I started running a few years ago after baby #1 came along. Try a couch to 5k plan. It worked really well for me. Remember to go slow. You don't have to be the fastest one out there. It only matters that you are out there.
