I increased my 'speed' today while walking and it felt like I'm getting closer to my wish of being able to run and run a race. Does that sound crazy? Oh, well if it does, because I've had what would have been a stressful day today and I'm so pleased with myself I'm just sailing through the day. Yay for me.

1. Continue to Strength Train 3-4x / week
2. Add cardio; Walk 1/2 mile 4-5x / week
3. Work on portion size
4. Work on getting that last glass of water in to get the 64oz of water / day

8/28 Day off for exercise; Portion sizes were good except for the chips I ate out of the bag for a snack, Water was great
8/29 Cardio and Strength exercise were great; Had all my water in before lunch; Also had all my fruit and veg servings by lunch


Never mistake failure as final

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

I have a question. I don't 'track' food officially and I'm starting to see a difference - well actually there is no difference in my weight and that's the problem. I don't track because I find that I get obsessed and frantic about it after just a week or so. I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to track food without becoming obsessed, burdened or overly anxious about it.

1. Continue to Strength Train 3-4x / week
2. Add cardio; Walk 1/2 mile 4-5x / week
3. Work on portion size
4. Work on getting that last glass of water in to get the 64oz of water / day

8/21 Day off for Exercise; Portion sizes were okay, Water - all 64oz
8/22 Strength and Cardio; Portion sizes were not great; Water - all but that last glass
8/23 Strength, but no cardio - woke up late; Portion sizes were not good; Water - all but the last one - Again.
8/24 Day off for Exercise;

I need to reach that elusive 3-mile marker, so I will:

8/24: Run no less than 33 minutes
8/26: Run no less than 35 minutes
8/28: Run no less than 35 minutes

I'm at 2.5 miles in just over 30 minutes, so am hoping that I can complete that last .5 mile in something under 39 minutes. Tough for a big girl, but as long as I keep this up, I will be a smaller girl with big goals! emoticon

I downloaded my first week of C25K on my phone so I am ready to start at the gym tomorrow! I will be a runner, just you all wait!!! Down over 60 pounds and I feel my knees will be able to handle running now, so watch the weight come off even faster! My goal this week is to get through week one of C25K training! Wish me luck!!!

This thread is to let everyone know your goals for the week, to keep yourself accountable. The goals can certainly be running related, but you can use the thread for other goals you are currently doing as well.

Simply post what you have for a goal for the week (for example: complete week three of C25k), and then as the week progresses, come back and edit your initial post with the results as you complete steps toward your goal.

Plus, our team is on our way to running to the moon! Please help us get there, by adding that team goal to your own goals list. You can find it from the main team page (near the bottom).
