Why did I do that?

Friday, February 28, 2014

Have you ever done something, then thought....WHY? I am 33 yrs old and I weigh 375 lbs. My knees feel like they are full of glass and my ankles are constantly swollen. I can't walk thru walmart without getting tired. So what did I decide to do? I have signed up for a 5k at my son's school. Yeah, I know.....It's a 5k walk/run for technology. I wanted to do it last year, but used my 7month old daughter as an excuse not to. For some reason, I really want to do this. It's in April, so I have 2 months. My mom, son and husband are going to do the walk with me. Moma and I are going to start walking, but it's too cold right now. 23 degrees this morning, so I am going to do my walk away the pounds dvds for now. I started this morning (I signed up for the walk yesterday). I did the 1 mile. I made it all the way through, but the thought of doing 3x that is a bit overwhelming. However, I am proud of myself for getting up and DOING it. I am not going to try to run the race, that just seems like too much to take on right now. I have decided I am not going to weigh myself and I am not going to count calories and that kinda thing right now. I am going to walk everyday and push a little more every day. I have 2 goals for the race....first is to finish it, and second is not to embarrass my son during the race. I will track my walking everyday to keep myself accountable. Wish me luck!!!

    Actually, a 3 mile (5K) is easier than the WATP.

    You're doing great! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon . That's great that you want to do the 5k. I am so proud of you for doing a mile. However I would track what you eat, I know that it is time consuming and can at times be discouraging, but it does make a difference and can be motivating. I know tracking is not my favorite thing, but it gives me time to reflect on the choices that I have made. Either way you are awesome for the steps you are taking. emoticon emoticon
