C25K Day 1

Day 1 did not go well only made it 3/4 the way through. I will have to redo, I am dead beat on this one.

Start C25K Today

Today I start my 8 week training of C25K. As some of you know I am not a running at all and for the last 10 yrs I have been a lazy couch potato. But in the last 4 months I have spent sometime working on losing weight and working out (gym started in June). I have lost about 35 lbs and am at 195lbs of this post.

So my next thing to do would be to run a 5K. I am not a runner at all and the thought of running 1/2 mile is killing me but people I have talked to have said that anyone can take up C25K and run a 5K so here I am starting my trek today.

Stay tuned to see my updates of my journey to run a 5K.

Lost It! – Weight Loss Update

Well it has been 5 months since I started my weight loss adventure.  It has been a tough road I started at 230 lbs and as of this morning I am currently at 194 lbs.  So I have to say it has been successful and I am very happy with progress so far.  My goal weight was going to be 200 lbs but since I hit that goal I have changed it to 185 lbs and if I stay on track I will hit this goal by end of Sept.  This would be the lowest I have weighted in the past 20 yrs.

I do feel better in the morning, more relaxed and have more energy.  I will be hitting 40 yrs old in about 4 months so this was one of my reasons for following through with it.  I just wanted to be more healthy and I believe I will be able to stay with it.  I have to say writing down everything I eat has helped so thanks to the Lose It! app since I could not carry a notepad around with me.
