As Promised…

I did it! I completed Day 1 of Week 1 of the Couch-to-5k program. And it wasn’t too bad. Surprisingly, my legs seemed to give out before my lungs… not sure what that says about what shape I’m in, but I’ll take it!

I’ll admit, I really had to convince myself to go to the gym once work was over. But knowing that I’d already told the whole internet (okay, just the 5 of you who read this blog) my running plans, I couldn’t back out.

I need to be held accountable so I’m leaving it up to you guys to help me! I’ve loved all your advice both here and on Twitter, so keep it coming 🙂

As for the rest of my evening, it was surprisingly productive. I made a quick and simple dinner of steamed kale, baked sweet potato, and toast.

I followed that up with an hour of medicine while watching Sunday’s episode of “The Good Wife” (love me some Josh Charles, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s from Baltimore).

I read some of “One Day” (anyone read it?) until my eyes got heavy and was asleep by 11:00.

It was just the night I needed to get me on track for the week!

What to you do to stay on track?

  1. YAY! Congrats 🙂 I made my own commitment to exercise today ( and even if it is just five of us who read the blog (which I know it’s not), it’s nice to have some accountability for your actions. Good job & good luck!

    • Thanks, love! It’d be fun to follow this together as a form of motivation and encouragement 🙂 Let me know if you try it!

  2. I read One Day- LOVED IT – until about 3/4 of the way through… then I didn’t like it so much anymore and I didn’t like the ending… interested to hear what you think!
