I had a ton of success in 2015 with C2K5 and weight lifting, but have been slowly gain g the weight back and not exercising as much as I should be. I am now on my 3rd week straight of hitting the gym 3-4 times a week. I am using the 5x5 lifting program and C25K again. I would really like to hit a 5K on Thanksgiving Day. Send your good vibes my way!
Hey everyone! Just a post to make things public, and wanting to declare it to myself infront of the world. To be honest, I do feel very embarrassed to share this on Facebook etc, where people know who I am. I do hold a lot of anxiety, as I have tried to have support buddies, but they got lazy and Ended up bailing out... Or when I do something or even just post about exercise my best mate thinks I am making a personal attack on her because I am "capable"? ... Don't get me wrong, lovely person however she makes her self out to be very mentally disabled and self sabotages. For example, I teamed up with a very successful life coaching/counselling company, paid them to help her out, with a weekend face to face course and told them to just let her think she won it, as she will kill me if she found out what I did. She said she really wanted to do it but came up with 100 problems why she can't and told them to pass the prize on. Sorry, that's a little rant, but something I really wanted to get off my chest, because I don't want her to know what I did. To keep the secret, I can't tell anyone... But she can take up the "prize" when she is upto it, it is always there. So I am sick of people saying "that's awesome! I wish I could do that but <insert excuse>" ... Because in some way, shape or form, I believe everyone can do it, and hearing the disguised negativity and other peoples excuses is bringing me down. So here, and in a hopefully supportive environment, I am holding myself accountable to finish the 10K trainer! I timed it so week 15 (graduating week) of the trainer, I will be running the community 10k run in September. I want to successfully run the entire course this year. No half-tried attempts like the previous years I have done it... And I will post up progress every week along the way! This week I have done week one, and am feeling motivated. Just have to not burn out that motivation and keep it up.
This is where i will document my journey. It will be largely in journal format and is simply a place where i will record my thoughts and notes on my workouts. 01/12/2015 - W1D1: Great Run. Weather was too bad to run outside, and my preconsieved dislike for treadmills had me dragging my feet to the gym. I was pleasantly surprised by the treadmill run. While i feel that running outside is more beneficial, the treadmill allowed me to focus on my breathing and stride instead of looking for holes, uneven ground and traffic. Also, because it constantly displayed my pace, it pushed me to keep my pace up (more than i would have running outside) even during the walking portions of the circuit. Felt very tight in my muscles, in particular my hips and calves after the run so spent at least 30 minutes on a Runners Yoga Sequence (I found it on Pintrest) and woke up the next morning with nearly zero soreness. Nutrition: Toast (GF/Autoimmune Paleo Bread made with Rice Flour), GF Tacos (2), Apple w/ Peanut Butter, Bacon Omlette. Weight: 193.5
