Couch to 5K Update

Hi friends, today starts week 3 of Couch to 5K training. I question myself at least every other day "why am I doing this?" and I don't know the answer, BUT we are doing it! I'll be honest and admit that I don't follow the every other day schedule train, rest, train, rest, train, rest, rest...but I do get my 3 days training in.

The first day you had to walk for 5 minutes, jog for 2, then walk for 5 and I'm so embarrassed to admit that jogging for those 2 minutes was HARD, I was real out of breath and watching the seconds on my stopwatch so I could quit. But I'm excited to say that yesterday I jogged 6+ minutes and YES I was tired & felt winded, but it wasn't nearly as hard as those first 2 minutes just 2 weeks ago.

Keeping my eye on the prize!

Weigh In

This week I have been good but not great. I didn’t run as much and on Saturday mom and I went to Epcot and ate Hibachi. You know the seafood sauce that’s white, which is pure mayonnaise; I drink that stuff like hot tea. The meal was great and worth every point!

Hope everyone is having a great Holiday Season! It’s been so hot here I haven’t been able to get into the Christmas spirit. Have a great weekend! I’m having Brandi for the weekend and throwing a Christmas Party on Saturday night! What are your plans?

Week: -1 pound
Total: -3 pounds

Weigh In Day

I’ve chosen Fridays to be my weigh in day. This week I have done very well at staying on track, and have used only a little of my flex points. I’m doing the Couch to 5-K challenge and have ran everyday except for Wednesday and Thursday, and it wont be FRIDAY because after this message I’m heading out with my tennis shoes. So what am I down this week?? 2.2 pounds, the scale has been so strange, up and down so I’m starting to weigh myself on Wii Fit, which is scary for me right now since they blew my character up, so no longer am I a skinny wii. I’m a chunky wii! How sweet of Nintendo to do that. Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL weekend!


Down: 2.2 pounds

Couch to 5K

Hi friends, it's the 4th Fat Chick Allie. I too slacked off this summer and let my eating get a bit out of hand. And you all know my hatred of all things considered "working out". But I've got my mind ready and am back on track. Starting today the couch to 5K program. It's a 10 week program, that goes at a very manageable (slow for most) pace. My good friend Tara is joining me. We are researching 5K in our area to sign up for in March.

Anyone else want to join us? If so you can get the schedule HERE.

I'll keep you posted as things progress.

Happy Week!
