Nothing Much

Well, I am alive, though I've been pretty busy. Yesterday I finally had time to relax and catch up on some much needed energy. I almost didn't go to the gym, but I didn't want to fall behind and I know I need to go as much as I can when the weather is good. :)

So, I started week six of C25k and was amazed that I am jogging so much now. It's a great feeling to pour sweat and make it through five and eight-minute intervals of jogging. I'm still very comfortable at a 4.0 mph, but can force myself to do 4.3. Breathing is so much better than when I started, but the legs are still sore. Nothing compared to the first week, so that's wonderful to me.

Today I made it to the gym again for elliptical and weights. I haven't done the weight machines in about two weeks and I felt weak. oh well.... Like I said before, I'll do what I can when the weather allows me to get out.

My eating has been horrible. I don't have a problem with eating anything I want, as long as I'm truly hungry and stop when I'm satisfied. That has not been my habit the past 2-3 days. Eating what I want, yes, when truly hungry and stopping when satisfied...no. Sheesh!

So, I've got to reign myself back in with regards to food and keep getting those workouts in. It's nothing new and I know deep down it's what works - eat less and move more. :)


  1. Great job on the C25k program! I just started day one/week one today. My legs are already sore!

  2. I'm proud of your running!

    Personally, I have trouble stopping with certain types of food. I do better with eating a limited number of tasty but healthy dishes. Things like cheesy potatoes or bread are hard for me to limit until I'm inadvertently too full, but many people do great with intuitive eating.

  3. I hear you, girl. Me, too. What is it with this week?!

    Yes, great job on the C25K. I haven't started my week 4, yet. I haven't posted except for the Hand for Haiti fundraiser, but wanted to check in with you and Larkspur.

    It'll get better, right? Right.

  4. I totally understand!! Way to go on following the program! I hope you are having a great week!
