Feels Good Friday!


Happy Friday!  I hope you have had a great week!  I know I did…mostly!  🙂

Monday I started my program to train for the half-marathon I’m taking part in this coming May.  (I actually just registered for the event!  So Excited!) Look Out Scotland!  Here I come with my shoes ready to take on Edinburgh!  Today I finished week 1 of the C25K program!  I felt so good!  I actually felt like I could keep going today.  But I know that will change on Monday.  Running time goes up to 90 seconds…It doesn’t sound like a lot but when your new, it takes FOREVER!  I can’t wait to start!  I also finished 2 of my 3 days of weights… that also felt good.  But…nothing feels better than stepping on the scale to see this number:

Weight: 270!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (that’s down 6 lbs folks!)


I stayed under my allowed calories and worked really hard at the gym….it’s paying off in just one week!  Now, I have to keep going.  The tough part is yet to come.  The 2nd week bla’s….the excuses will try to creep in, the weather will be colder again next week, and I will most likely be tired as this weekend I am turning over my house and junking out a bunch of stuff.  I WILL NOT GIVE IN! 

Now if you will excuse me…I have a warm coffee calling my name …Have a great weekend!  Keep moving my friends….it’s totally worth it !  🙂Friday Coffee

    1. I don’t know. Ive been eating lots of salad with chicken on it for lunches and not snacking throughout the day…that helps 🙂 I am using MyFitnessPal like you are…love it! Thanks for the encouragement 🙂

  1. Yay! Great job!!! I was wondering if you have been fitted for running shoes? I have heard that getting fitted is key to becoming a runner. I have not, and I am still not a runner, lol.

    I am so happy for you!! 6 pounds, woot woo!!!!

    1. Thanks 🙂 I was pretty happy all day…hahaha. I have not been fitted for shoes yet but I need to. I hear it makes all the difference in the world. My knee, hips and lower back sure feel the impact so I’m hoping good fitted shoes will help…

  2. YAY!! Congratulations on some really great work this week! 🙂 And how exciting to actually register for the half-marathon- I bet that makes it feel much more real!
