Sunday Quotes: Healthy Life

I am now officially entering my second week of the couch to 5K challenge and coming off of a slightly traumatic dressing room situation that occurred on Friday that left me hating the fact that I have let myself gain 20 extra pounds in the last couple of years.

I seriously need some sort of intervention on memegenerator.net.  I can't STOP making memes!

With all of the above being stated, this week I need to get my sweat on and start to breakup with junk food and sugar (minus July 4th of course).  I am sure I will not handle the breakup well.  Junk food and sugar will move on swiftly and quickly, while I will be a wreck for awhile.


Here is some motivation to get me through this upcoming week (maybe it will help out some of you as well):

Couch to 5K…Oy Vey

Like many people (just take a trip to your local Walmart), I have let myself go when it comes to my body.  Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t kick me out of bed or anything, but I definitely would LOVE to lose 10-15 pounds and have a little less cushion for the pushin.

Last year I embarked on a couch to 5k challenge to ready myself for my first 5k race.  Once the race was over, I was over running.

A year later the scale is reminding me very much of Superman and my weight is going “up up and away”.

Time for a running redo.  Yesterday I started up the couch to 5K challenge again.  There are several ways to do it, but this is the particular schedule I am following:


 The two minute run felt like two hours but I got through it.  My calves were burning and my pride was hurting but as my Sunday quotes blog from yesterday stated “Do not give up, the beginning is always the hardest”.  Amen to that!

Bonus:  Today was a rest day (though I did find time to walk during my lunch break and fit in a yoga class after work).

See you back tomorrow for an all new blog in my 93 days of blogging this summer!
