So this week I started the Couch to 5K program. The first week is really easy, it's the weeks after that are going to kick my butt. I've never been good at running, even when I was fit it wasn't because of running. I would spend an hour or more on the elliptical every day, free weights, and I walked 2 miles to and from work almost everyday. I realize now that when I was a Freshman and Sophomore in college, I was pretty active and I definitely didn't eat out as much as we have now. But thankfully we aren't going on a diet. We are just changing our eating habits for good. Friday night is cheat night, and we can go out of dinner. The rest of the week however we eat at home, and we have a vegetable with every meal. We only eat pasta once a week, and every day I eat a great breakfast.
Since the weather is finally starting to cool down I actually enjoy going outside for a little jog with Brynlee again, so it's been a lot easier to incorporate exercise into my routine. I'm also putting my gym membership back into good use for something other then tanning.
I made a little monthly exercise chart with fun little stickers. When I stick it out for the month I can get myself a new dress.
