I was finally able to squeeze in my Couch to 5k day two on Thursday. It wasn't without challenge! Drop kids at karate, twenty minute drive to moms, thirty minutes on treadmill, some quick stretches,try to get out of house because we were chatting of coarse, twenty minute drive back to pick them up, and I just made it in time. It was also only my second time on a treadmill. It feels more comfortable to run without hanging on but I'm scared I'm gonna fall! I'll get better with practice! I hope to go over this evening to do day three.
I didn't do great on calories yesterday because we had a potluck at work. I initially planned on being good, but then I would try a tiny bit of this and a tiny bit of that and I'm pretty sure it all added up to more than a tiny amount of calories. Tonight I promised my family hot wings for dinner and it's going to be hard but I need to limit myself to just a few. It is also my Grandma's birthday so I had a huge piece of cake this afternoon. D'oh!
My co-workers are organizing a "Biggest Loser" competition and I am at a impasse as to if I should join. It's only six or seven weeks long and since I already did a big chunk of weight loss I am unsure that I can lose enough to be competitive. However, I was thinking it would give me motivation at least to maybe work harder. I am not sure though because everyone just starting will have an advantage because their first few pounds will come off quickly. It's only $20.00 to enter, winner take all, but since I don't have a lot of money to spare I don't want to waste it if I don't have a chance to win. One of the males entering loses weight REALLY easy (on the downside for him, he also gains it really easy). I don't know what to do!
