I spent the first part of the day cleaning and rearranging the living room to prepare for our annual Super Bowl party that will be held in two weeks. I stayed so busy that lunch time came and went and I didn't eat until 2:00ish.
After a light lunch, I felt exhausted from all
the cleaning and moving the furniture. I had really wanted to hit the
treadmill but the way I felt, I didn't think I'd have the energy.
Finally, I told myself to quit the excuses and just do it. I wouldn't
regret it and I'd be really mad at myself if I didn't. So I grabbed my
mp3 player and started week 2 of Couch to 5k. It was hard, but I
finished the work out this time. Last time I attempted it, I wussed out
at 14 minutes. I was also sick at the time and having a hard time
breathing, so this time was way more manageable. I did, however, make
the mistake of starting the first run on an incline. After I finished
the whole work out, I felt like I was going to die, but once I caught my
breath, I felt amazing. And I didn't regret a single minute. :)
It's 6:00pm and I just finished dinner. I've had 1003 calories and burned 208 during my work out. I'm really proud of myself.
If you're interested in Couch to 5k, download the work out. My plan is to do a 5k in September, unless I
can find one before then. Or I might try setting up a virtual 5k in
the future. We'll see. :)
