Finally Friday!

So let me get it out of the way - I did my first "public" weigh in today and I'm up .2 of a pound. Really makes me regret all of the sodium I had yesterday. I don't know exactly how much I consumed, but I know it was a lot, and I didn't think about that when it came to the scale today. Such is life though.

I got up early this morning and did the cardio portion of my Couch to 5k run. I want to dedicate this post to blogger Kelli... I didn't even realize until she mentioned that she is also combining the P90x and Couch to 5k program. This morning when I was out for my run and a few miles from home, I was thinking about her blog yesterday, because I was really having a tough time going (It was like 6 am and still dark outside!) but she mentioned how she kept going and it did get easier, and I had the same experience this morning.

And I definitely had my doubts out on the streets thinking - "why the heck am I out here?" "I am SO not a runner." "1/2 Marathon? 10k? I don't even want to finish a 5k." Anyway - I just want to let Kelli know she is SO not alone in those thoughts - and even though you may be worried about the mental toughness - YOU ARE TOUGH gal cause you still got yourself out to the gym... THANK YOU for motivating me! And you know what? We got this gal! This is our time to kick butt!


  1. No worries; next week will be better. So Luke started P90X this week and we were chatting about the program today & he asked how much I lost & I said 6 lbs and he seemed to think that wasn't a lot and I disagree. Especially with any muscle building. BTW started a new DVD from the program today & it has like a million push-ups. Want tickets to the gun show?

  2. That must be the chest and back DVD! :)

    Meh... He's a guy... no comparison!

  3. Awww...thanks for the dedication! I have kind of varied from the actual Couch to 5K program lately, now that I can run a bit further, and am just trying to push myself to go further. I'm really curious to see how it's going to be to keep up with C25K & P90X at the same's to a lot of work ahead!
