Wheezing my way from couch to 5K

Okay everyone sorry that I have been gone from the blogging world for so long. Alot really has been going on in my life but I am sure you have all heard of it by now, if not from me then from my mom! So last week I was browsing through some websites on how to make treadmill workouts more exciting--didn't really find to much but I did find one particular website that caught my attention and it was this, a program that is suppose to make a 5k achievable in 9 weeks. I looked it over and thought that this would be very attainable and I could do if i really wanted. So it was the end of last week and I decided that Monday September 21rst would be my first day of the "Couch to 5k" running program. I also decided that i would blog about my progress over the next 9 weeks. So Let my journey of self improvement and better health begin! Please feel free to cheer me on I am going to need all the encouragement i can get!

A few things as to why I have decided to do this:
1. Loose some LBs(Okay a lot of pounds)
2. to feel accomplished and something new and challenging
3. To improve my health
4. To be an inspiration to those of us who never thought of running let alone a 5K.
5. Gives me something to do after work and it doesn't involve a TV

Other things i am going to do to help me accomplish this goal:
1. Drink more water alot more water( which i have already been doing)
2. eat more fruits and veggies and less meat and carbs
3. Posting on my blog about my progress so I will have journal of how i am doing and how i felt!
4. Not to get discouraged when the weeks and runs get tougher
5. vowing to Finish Day 3 of Week 9 and being able to stick with it afterwards.

So everyone Check back and remember to Cheer me on every once in a while I will really enjoy the support!
