Woo Hoo! I just completed week 5 of the C25K! I can not believe that I actually ran for a solid 20 minutes!! But I have to tell you that after about 12 minutes it was a piece of cake until the last 3 minutes which I thought would never pass! I can not tell you how proud I am of myself right now! To think that I was not even exercising this time 5 weeks ago is absolutely amazing to me. People have told me that once you start running that you get addicted to it, but I never believed them. Now, I am a believer! I look forward to it and I feel so great afterwards!
On other news, I had a huge wardrobe crisis yesterday morning. I was getting ready for the day and decided that I wanted to wear slacks. I own 9 pair of slacks. I got my favorite pair out and they were too big! Next, I pulled out the other pairs only to realize that they were each too big! I can only wear 2 pair and both of those are a little big! I can not believe it! The changes I am seeing in my body right now are not only in weight but in muscle. I feel leaner!
So, anyone else in? This program has changed me dramatically! You just have to get rid of all the excuses and do it! I have 3 kids, a run a program for K-2 grade kids at my church, I'm in the Junior League and just got a position on the board, I volunteer at a local preschool, I'm a homeroom mom, I'm on the Ladies Ministry Committee at my church and I'm my 6 year olds cheerleading coach. Yes, I am busy but I have made this a priority!
