Happy 3 monthaversary!

First, Happy Birthday Mom!  I love you and hope you had a good day!

3 months ago today I started on this journey.  January 2nd was the first day of my new life.

I've had some ups and downs but in general, life is good!  It did take some pictures tonight to track progress but I'm not posting them tonight.  I didn't get them uploaded to the computer so it will just have to wait.

I did some jogging tonight on the Wii.  I don't think the distance is exact but it's pretty darn close.

Here is what I did tonight...
This was a 10 minute "Free Run"
I will definitely be running the 5k in June!  I'm hoping to work my way up to 20 minutes by next week.

I am also planning on doing some jogging outside.  That is part of the issue.  It's one thing to do it in the A/C but another to do it outside.  I know jogging on a track would be best just because I can track how far I'm going.

I'm learning how to breathe while jogging.  It's quite difficult to change your breathing.  Put a hand on your stomach and one on your chest.  If your stomach is moving, then you are not breathing correctly.

Well, today was a good day but it is time for bed.

Until tomorrow...

Thought of the day:

  1. That's cool that you're going to run a 5K! When I run outside, I map out my route on Google Map so I know how far I'm going. As far as breathing, I have trouble with that too. I've discovered that doing yoga helps. Something to look into. Good luck!
