Yesterday I did the Day 2 workout for my 5k Your Way. I was able to go out to the track at Belle's school (thanks to my wonderful boyfriend). The first jog was rough. I think I just went too fast though because the second jog was 'easy'. The third and fourth seemed to fly by! I felt I could go a few more rounds but I was worried my feet would disagree with me since I was wearing brand new shoes.
I picked up new tennis shoes yesterday because I needed comfy black shoes for work and I figured I'd get something that would double as exercise shoes! :D Boy am I glad I did! My feet are NOT sore today! WOOT! Now to find my exercise clothes so I'm not wearing a random tank top and sweats to go exercise. Nothing worse than worrying about bra straps falling down or draw strings not being tight enough when you're focusing on burning through a workout!
Also, I found a workout buddy on SparkPeople.com and we are going to start walking together Sunday evenings (thanks again to my awesome boyfriend)! :D Well, to be honest, she found me. :) Also, she's working through the same 5k program I am! Too perfect! She's a couple weeks ahead of me though. We're going to meet up tonight to see if I can keep up with her (just by walking fast). If I can, we're going to exercise Monday eves too. Have I mentioned I have an awesomely supportive boyfriend? I love him :)
Added bonus, thanks to all this exercising, I've been so alert the last couple of mornings it's awesome! Add some Spark to my morning and I'm so energized!!!! I am getting quite a bit done around the house lately (compared to what I've done the last few weeks). I also feel much happier. I've been really down and out the last several weeks. I'm so glad I made the decision to get back into this! A few more weeks of making this exercise thing a habit and then I will work on our pantry. :) Then we're gonna see BIG results!
I am going to try and hold out on weighing myself until I absolutely have to for my next upcoming challenge starting the 13th. Let's see if I can go ten days without weighing/measuring in. I cheated this morning and weighed myself (after having just weighed myself Wednesday) and I've gained some ounces. I am hoping it is just muscle. I did measure myself since I haven't measured since March. Even though I only gained about 3 pounds in the last month and some, I did gain several inches. So it looks like I lost muscle and gained fat. No bueno :( BUT, we're changing that now! Baby steps and this will get done!
Okay, enough rambling on for now. Time to get some housework done and get my house back under control!
