The Gym

I DID IT! I WENT! I MADE IT TO THE GYM!

Finally, right? The gym is always such  struggle for me. Last night I posted in the blog that I would go today.  I was sure that someone would check up on me so I had to go! Mike and I had cereal for breakfast and then I was off! BTW, The new Quaker Oatmeal Squares Cereal is delish...4 points for the serving (add 2 points for milk). Here is my breakfast...



I got right on the treadmill and started running.  I was determined today to prove something to myself.  I wasn't sure what I was trying to prove but I wanted it. I started running at a 5.0 and didnt stop to walk until I hit 0.91 of a mile! I can honestly say that that is the farthest I have EVER run without stopping.  I know to some it sounds like nothing but it was a true accomplishent for me.  After it hit the one mile mark, I continued to run/walk the second mile.  I switched between a 5.0 run and a hearty 3.6 walk. It felt amazing.  This is why I need to go to the gym more.  I don't realize how good it feels until I am done!

Right as I hit mile 2 this young 18 year old beach body babe started up the treadmill next to me...That was my cue to hit the road :)

Goal for March 1-Run 1 mile at 5.0 without stopping!

  2. That was awesome to read. I pat myself on the back when I can run a full mile without stopping too (it's not that easy!). Thanks for the added inspiration to continue on! I'm really proud of you!
