Blendergrl's Weight Loss Tracker

Run Blendergrl Run!!

13 lbs ago (Apr 2 to be exact) I tested out the jogging waters and drowned almost immediately. I have been walking a 2.5km route with my dog every night for the past month and tonight I decided it was time to try again. I started out by jogging all of the downhill parts and then also tried some of the flat areas. I think I was doing about 5min walk to 1 min jog. The best part is that when I got home I was a little winded but definately not a weezing mess heaving on the couch (see Apr 2 post!) I know the weight loss has helped but the increase activity of the past two months has been the key. I used to swim 1km in about 30 min and now I do 1.5 in the same time. I still have a ton of weight to lose but I am excited that my endurance and fitness will only improve as the pounds come off. My goal for June is to do the first month of the couch to 5k program. Anyone out there tried this??

Great job on the running! I haven't done the couch to 5k but HTabby (Life at the zoo) on my blog list is a great resource for beginner runners. She has great advise and lots of info so you should pop over and say boo! Good luck!

It will get better as the pounds come off and our endurance becomes stronger.
You should be very proud of yourself.
I have not even come close to couch to 5k, however I would like to give it a try when I am in better shape.
