I've started pretty slow with this whole workout-weight loss thing. My only goal right now is to stay on track with the C25K program. (I'm on workout 1 of week 3, thank you!) Keeping up with it only requires 3 days a week. Totally do-able. However, the easiest time for me to run is in the morning, but by the time I have passed the "I'm so tired, how will I live through today" stage, it's already pretty hot outside. Now, I'm not really making excuses, but, I do have an almost 5 month old who, though she sleeps really really well, wakes me up about 3 times a night. It is amazing how much those small interruptions can mess up your sleep cycle. So yeah, morning rolls around and I am tired! I make excuses..but I know (especially on Wednesdays) that if I don't get that run in, it's not going to happen that day and then everything is screwed up. Everything, I tell you! I've gone to our little fitness center and run on the treadmill twice, but I don't love that because I have to put K on the floor with a blanket and she tends to fuss after about 20 minutes, (How lucky am I to get those 20 minutes though?) and I hate the treadmill. I love running outside and K does great in the jogging stroller. So I really just have to suck it up, wake up, and put on those running clothes. Good thing it's going to start cooling down pretty soon. Only 5 more weeks to go!
I started this blog 2 years ago to help find motivation to lose weight. It worked. Then I stopped blogging. Then I had a baby! Now I'm back on track and hoping to get into running again and lose that baby weight.
Why My Blog Address is Veganana1
When I started blogging 3 years ago, I was starting a Vegan Before Dinner diet. It worked really well and I did well with it too. Because I have moved away from that I changed the name of my blog from Vegan Ana to Just Ana. I decided I didn't want to start a new blog because then I would lose my journal.
