Today was the start of my second week of attempting a couch to 10k program. I’ve been using this one that I found on Spark. I think it’s pretty good. It starts off nice and slowly, but is still challenging. My only complaint is that the number of minutes for the entire days run is often added up incorrectly.
I actually really do enjoy running and exercising in general. It’s the getting started bit that I often have problems with. I’m hoping that having a blog that I report on will keep me a bit more honest this time around.
Prior to my wedding I worked my butt off, quite literally. I lost 35 lbs. However, even when I got to my lowest weight I still had about another 25 (including vanity weight) to go. I really like to get to the point where I’m a UK size 12 – 14 instead of a 16 – 18. For any Americans reading this, UK sizes are basically 2 sizes larger than American ones. Therefore, if you a UK 18, you’d be a US 14.
When I started my last exercise regime I let myself buy anything that I thought I would do. This included a gym membership, loads of DVD’s (mainly Jillian Michaels) and a handful of fitness related Wii games. Anything to get me off my butt. I want to find a way that would make use of everything I have in a certain period of time. Does anyone have any suggestions or inspiration?
