Couch to 5k

Here's a little update for ya'll on my Couch to 5k progress. So far I have managed to run a few times during my regular workouts. Other than that it has been more of a Couch to the other side of the Couch kind of routine. I mean I have been busy too. I was out of town for the last 2 weekends and did lots and lots of walking then. This week I have taken on the grand task of emptying out my attic, garage and basement to have an end of summer yard sale. Actually, there's a whole street in my town that does this sale every year, so I'm gonna go dump my crap at my friend's house and hope to God it all sells. So that has been quite the chore. I can't believe all the stuff that has accumulated in this house! I mean we've only lived here 3 yrs and it seems like we have more crap than a couple that's been married 50 yrs! I start back to classes next week and then my routine will begin to get back to normal. I will be back at the gym again and hopefully this running thing will start to improve. I did run on my street for a bit a week or so ago and let me tell's WAY easier to run on a treadmill. Not as fun, but WAY easier. I actually had to push myself to move ahead instead of the belt doing it for me...hmmmm.

Ok peeps....I need some motivation. This having the summer off with my girl thing has made me kind of lazy. I haven't completely stopped working out, but I'm not doing nearly as much as I could. I went to see a dietician yesterday. My doctor thinks I may need to "tweak" some of my normal routines to jumpstart my weight loss. So the dietician was the next step. She was really nice and helpful. On top of my working out she wants me to drop my calories (1700 a day instead of 1800). She also wants me to add a "stir-up" exercise in at the end of the week. This stir up thing is an exercise that is either longer in duration, more intense, or more frequent. So one day a week you move more, harder, or longer than your previous exercises. My goal this week is to get at least 2 days at the gym and 2 days walking from home. Then my "stir-up" would be to hit the gym and intesify my workout for 45 minutes. Wish me luck....

On other news I am starting back at classes on the 25th. I can't wait to be honest. I'm really looking forward to my Anatomy and Physiology class. I think it will be fun. I know. I'm a dork. But I also am really looking forward to the Girl getting back into preschool and out from under my feet! I can't wait to just be around adults for a few hours everyday again!!! The conversation this summer with the Girl hasn't been stimulating to say the least. She's probably getting sick of me too at this point. So September can't get here fast enough!!!

For a quick weight loss update I am down 2 lbs. So let's see my starting weight in Jan. was 218, I'm at 205 now. 13 lbs gone and holding, holding, holding......
