I did start something today though, but I'm not calling it a resolution...though I resolve to keep with it. I know that doesn't make much sense, but I never said this blog would make any sense. Hey, perhaps that should be my New Year Resolution.
But I digress.
Today Hubby and I started a Couch to 5k running programme, guaranteed that if we follow it, it will turn us from this...
...in just 9 weeks. So at the end of the 9 weeks, we will be able to run continuously for 30 mins, get in shape and burn off some belly fat that's just been growing and growing as of late. I'm so glad that Hubby is into this too so we can do it together, cheer each other on and push each other out the door because that always seems to be the hardest part for me. Once I'm out there, it's all good...I feel great afterwards, but then it's the doing it over and over again that becomes difficult. That and not eating cookies, chips, etc.
It went well today. It's a really easy programme to follow. You buy the App for your iPhone and you can listen to your own music while a lovely British woman (well, she sounds lovely) prompts you to warm up, walk, jog and cool down. This week we're basically running only for 1 minute, 8 times and walking a minute and a half in between. Totally doable.
The App is called Get Running (Couch to 5k). Here's what it looks like on your iPhone...
So wish us luck! We even took some "before" pics of what we look like now, but I WILL NOT be posting them - at least not yet. Maybe when I look like the woman in the pic above, then I'll post the before pics, but for now they just make me want to eat a cookie.
I will post this though. I had Hubby take a pic of me as I was heading out today.
