I'm starting Couch Potato to 5K (from hence forth to be called CP25K) on Monday. I'm nervous and more than a little apprehensive, but I'm determined. My girl Erica is starting Monday, too. I'm trying to talk her into starting a blog here so that she can be encouraged by you lovely ladies as much as I have.
All's I need is a new pair of kicks and a el cheapo digital watch and I'm all set. This weekend I'm gonna fill my ilo full of pumping songs so if any of ya'll have a must have favorite workout tune, lemme know. Personally mine is "No Diggity" by BlackStreet and "Bow Tie" from OutKast (which is just hilarious, because I'm as white as they come...) (ps: "no diggity" is really filthy - but I can't help loving it! I have the edited version so that I don't feel quite as bad about it!)
I'm also taking Randi's advice and doing strength training on my "off" days. I don't know what or how yet, but I realize that I can't make sure I'm burning off fat and gaining muscle without it.
I'm trying to find some sort of nutritional food plan to follow. I really like what everyone is saying about "eating to fuel myself". I hate the fact that I don't eat stuff like almonds because they're not core and they're too point expensive. We'll see. I mean, I won't really be getting healthy if I'm just losing weight eating ff popcorn, now will I?
I think that's enough for now. I still encourage anyone who wants to join in the CP25K challenge to come right on! Here's a link with more info about it: http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml
This blog has taken me like an hour to write because I'm so ADD today, so sorry if it's choppy. I hope you all have a wonderful OP day!
