C25K Update

Saw this on the Biggest Loser Facebook page:

I finally moved on to Week Five in my Couch to 5K training. I’m planning to repeat Day 1 tomorrow. The weather here has been cold and rainy so I’ve been running on the treadmill. I just need to keep up my training on a regular basis. Outside or on the treadmill, I do know that I am going to make running a regular part of my fitness routine. I can’t believe how quickly my endurance has diminished. Anyhow, I’m plugging away – still having the same struggles with getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, and not eating too much food. Through it all I am keeping my eyes on the prize – I am a runner!

Weekly Weigh In

No weight loss this week.

I started Week Four of the Couch to 5K. It’s weird because this week was a breeze. Not that I have been running consistently, my body feels better. I am not as drained before. I do need to work on more stretching. I’m still training on the treadmill. Hopefully I will be able to start running outside soon.

I dropped out of the 100 Day Burpee Challenge. I just couldn’t do more than 30. I am proud of myself for making it that far.

Weekly Weigh In

Whew! I cannot believe it! I'm down another two pounds. I'm really quite surprised since a couple days ago I wrote I have been slacking on my goals. The only difference? I have been making sure I go to bed at a decent hour. I need to stick to my plan of getting enough zzzz's!

Marching Forward

Well, it’s March 1. It’s time to look at my monthly goals. I have to be honest and say I have not been working on my fitness goals consistently these past two weeks. I keep allowing work to get in the way. I am not getting enough sleep and I have been working long hours. In addition to working full-time, I am teaching two courses while enrolled in a course myself. With all this going on, I have been keeping up with the 100 Days of Burpees challenge and my Couch to 5 K training. I have not been going to the gym to lift weights. If I want to reach my weight loss goal, I need to focus on my food plan and my sleep routine. I have also been slipping with food prep and planning. I will spend some time this weekend reorganizing. So this month my goals are to:

1. Lift at least two days a week
2. Complete my Couch to 5K run three times a week
3. Attend Spin class on Thursday
4. Complete daily burpees
5. Maintain daily food journal and share with my OA sponsor
6. Get at least 7 hours of sleep
