I did it!!

Yesterday was day 1 of the from the couch to 5k program for me!! I actually was able to to do the running!! I took my daughter, my husband and my dog along with me and let me tell you that will not happen again. My daughter enjoyed running with me but she didn't want to run the full minute so thankfully my husband would stay with her. Our dog is an old man so at one point he actually just sat down and refused to move. I just continued on and let my husband deal with that. I know how mean of me but I needed to focus on the walking/running!!
                                           This is me after my walk/run!!

When I got home I felt so good!! I hear everyone talking about how good they feel after exercising and thought they were crazy, but I actually felt good. I know it's just the beginning but I'm looking forward to tomorrow when I can do it again. Just Tuesday of this week I would have never said I was looking forward to exercising!!

I have been doing really good with counting calories!! I really think this is the change that I needed. I love tracking my calories and totaling them at the end of the day and seeing that I'm staying within my range. I haven't felt deprived at all in fact I at homemade lasagna last night and was still in my range!! I feel as though I have a new lease on life and it's gonna be a good life!!

Have you done anything new? What is your exercise plan?


  1. Tell me next time you go so I can come and watch Rusty refuse to move.

  2. ah! I did the couch to 5k program too but kinda started to really struggle around week 6! but this is a great reminder that I should get into it! Keep it up -- it feels so great to start running!

  3. Awesome! Glad its going so well for you! Soon you'll be addicted - I can't live without my endorphins now!
