So, I haven’t exactly been racing along the weight loss path. In a bit over 5 months I’ve lost a little more than 15 pounds. Good, but not great. Surprisingly, I’ve not yet given up. Usually I lose 10 pounds, get bored, and quit. This is the first time in years I’ve actually stayed on the (semi)healthy bandwagon for more than a couple of months.
Most exciting thing though: today I jogged 20 minutes! Without stopping! On April 1 I started this c25k jogging program and was really not sure I was going to make it through. I’m still not done yet– the ultimate goal is to run 30 minutes without stopping–but I’m doing better than I expected. I never thought that I would be able to just jog. And chat. And then keep jogging… for 20 whole minutes.
Every time I go out, I try to add 1 or 2 minutes to my time. If I keep this up, in just 2-3 weeks I should be jogging for 30 minutes straight! I think this is so exciting because I have always kind of sucked at health goals. School goals, career goals, cleaning goals, even personal goals– I kind of rock those. Health goals, not so much. I am not sure I have ever even really tried to meet one other than losing weight. So when I reach this, it’ll be pretty big. Stay tuned for celebration party invitations!
