Due to unavoidable circumstances I was unable to start the fitness challenge yesterday. So I used that as my rest day. I did get up this morning and let me tell you, I thought I was going to DIE!

I started pretty good. I felt great. The weather was perfect. I was proud of myself for getting out of bed and getting my shoes on. I was feeling awesome in my new tank top (hot pink!). I was on top of the world! I walked for 4 minutes and then started jogging. It wasn't too bad! And I found a new reason to love my new top! I could jog easier because it held everything in place! So I was psyched about that! I felt like I could jog longer than that first minute, but I paced myself. Started walking again. Second jogging session I was a little winded. By my fourth minute-long jog I was hurting! My side was aching and I just wanted to quit! I kept thinking 'I can't do this! What was I thinking?' Then I remembered that if you think you can't then you won't. So I started cheering myself on. When the next jog came I told myself 'Come on! It's only a minute!' And I pushed through that minute! I really had to talk myself through the last minute! But I timed it just right that I ended up right where I wanted for my cool down walk. I told myself 'just make it to the grass, that's all you have to do!'

And I did it!

I felt amazing! And I couldn't stop thinking about how great my top was! All the other times I tried jogging my ladies were everywhere! This new top is snug but looks really good! I think I might enjoy jogging!

    You can do it! Sounds like you did!! Running is tough...nevermind having to deal with girls bouncing all over the place. It's bad enough you have to carry them around all day, much less chugchugchug with them. I try to run...on the 4th week of the C25K and I call it "slogging" LOL.
    More appropriate for me I'm sure.
    Have a great day!
