So, when I started my journey on the Couch to 5k program I was a little skeptical. Me run? Yah right!
Well, Week 4 Day 1 complete!!
For those of you who don't know what I am talking about, Couch to 5k is a program that claims that it can take anyone from being a couch potato to running a 5k in 9 weeks. It gives you a week by week, step by step, program that starts off with more walking and ends up with you running for thirty minutes straight. Last night I ran for 5 minutes straight! I looked at this week and laughed when I saw it. Running for 3 minutes last week was hard, but 5? But.....I did it!! I was sweating bullets!! I even started saying things like, "You can do it!" and "One more minute!" while I was jogging. It was actually kinda fun. Not only did I run for 5 minutes, but I did it twice. It was a ton of fun!
Anyways, a teacher at my school asked if I had lost weigt yesterday. I was very happy to tell her that I hadn't lost a ton of weight, but rather inches. She said that the sweater I was wearing used to be kinfa snug and now I am swimming in it! I was so happy.
Well, I hope everyone has a great rest of the week!
Confession: I went over my calories yesterday by a little. Could have been the Reeses Big Cup I had in the car at 9pm last night. LOL
Cheer: I finished my Couch to 5k program last night. I'm also trying to put together a free weightloss program at school kinda like WW since none of us has any money!!
