How many times will I start over again? I'm down 7 lbs this week, obviously was bloated. I'm proud of my food choices (no cookies!) this week. I'm trying to set small goals daily that fit how I feel. If I'm feeling sick, I focus on water... Read more

I've been on a long "journey." It all started at 283 lbs. I got married, got pregnant, and somehow lost 50 lbs while pregnant. I was so proud. My post-partum weight was 235 and I felt like I had a huge jump on my health! As the months went ... Read more

Wednesday, April 24, 2013      1 comments

This is a little delayed. I had a rough time with W4 because I got sick and my asthma got 100% out of control. I ended up having to go to a clinic to get inhaler refills which led to me finding out I had a double ear infection! All better now... Read more

W3D1 - I thought I was going to throw up on the second 3 minute run. I'm running along thinking, "I can make it through this without throwing up. How in the world did I get this out of shape?!" W3D2 - Smoother sailing, but I was hitting p... Read more

I struggled in the same places today as I did Monday. The last two runs were brutal (both uphill) and I was dreading them. I live on a loop, and each time around is about .4 mi, so I just do my C25K on the loop. During the 6th (last) ru... Read more

This was a tough run, but nothing like W1D3 was. I vowed to myself that no matter how slow I ran, I was going to make it even on the uphill runs, especially after I had serious thoughts of backtracking through a walk interval to make my last run... Read more

Here we are, almost 3 years later, and I'm starting C25K again. I thought it might be cool to compare my times as I go, so here they are! W1D1: 7/14/10 - 15:30/mi (2 mi) 3/18/13 - 13:39/mi (2.2mi) I feel great! It was a lot s... Read more
