SO, I've started a workout log on the right sidebar of my blog. I think I need it to hold myself accountable and to push me to try harder because I know that I can do it! I've made some huge accomplishments this past week. Firstly, I was able to pull both of my kids (Aprox. 60lbs) in the bike cart on my bike to my moms and back! It was a total of 2.2 miles! This is a HUGE accomplishment because the last time I tried to pull the bike cart Cady was around 2 years old and I couldn't do it. I didn't even last 5 minutes let alone 2 miles! To say that I was tired would be an understatement, but I was also ECSTATIC! I have also been able to ride my bike (without kids) twice for 3 miles or more without stopping! Tonight I pushed myself harder than ever and went 3.6 miles! I should probably include that I have what is called a "Beach Cruiser" this is not your run of the mill mountain bike! It is a cruiser, pedal brakes, no gears so to be able to pedal my fat ass is huge!
The accomplishment I am most excited to share is that I entered into my second week of the Couch 2 5 K challenge! Last week I wasn't even able to job through 60 full seconds. I would go until about 40 seconds and have to stop. Well, last night I went on my evening workout and changed my route a bit and I am proud to say that I was able to jog for the full 90 seconds EVERY time! For those of you that don't know me, I am extremely overweight. The last time I weighed myself (months ago) I was probably close to 280 so to say that I was able to jog for 90 seconds straight is HUGE. I mean HUGE! I have never been so proud of myself!
I will end on a high note: I am feeling pretty good. I am still tired a lot, I am still fat (lol) and I still don't eat as well as I should, but I feel better!
Until Next Time....
