**this post or journal entry comes when I am actually in week 6 and I am Struggling with Day 1. It is so hard for me to do and I have no idea why, I must keep motivated**
Have a wonderful day!

Yeah, I ran yesterday and I ran again today.
I had to, tomorrow I cannot run - just too busy.
It was easy. Hey it's week 2 it should be easy but I did it.
Feeling really good about myself. I am just nervous for when I get home. I live in a hilly area there's no freaking way I can run hills. That's for sure!
I will have to figure this one out.
Later today I go home from the sunshine.

Woo Hoo! Week 2, Day 1 down.
This week is a brisk 5 minute walk (warm up) and then alternating between 90 second jogs and 2 minute walks for 20 minutes with a 5 minute cool down walk.
Not so bad. I made it.
Starting to think I like running. Even though it says to take a break in between days I am going to run tomorrow because we are flying home tomorrow night and then I would have to run on Wednesday and Maya has dance. I don't want to push it off until Thursday to keep my momentum going so I will just run two days in a row.
Very excited that I have made this commitment to myself.

Change of scenery today. It was nice as where I am staying has a walking/running path all around the center of the development with mile markers. Cool.
I got up nice and early, hydrated and went about my run. Not so bad. I am liking this as it is flat. I just hope when I get home I am able to keep up with it. I am motivated and will have a good base on me to do well.
Not so bad, feels good. My parents and grandma are very encouraging to me. Keep it up, I am excited.
Next run on Monday. Should be fun, that will be Week 2, Day 1.
Gotta keep moving.

So here I go. Day 2. Can I do it?
After: Wasn't so bad. Went out much earlier so it was not so hot. Did it and have no complaints. I feel really good and I am super proud of myself for sticking to this plan.
I was running today and at times I was thinking, "can I do this?" to "what am I thinking?"
I have never been a person who loved exercising. Why on earth would I start running and 40? Ahh, it's because it has great benefits, you will look great and you will hopefully like it the little voice in side my head keeps telling me.
Another motivating factor, I got the "Pro" version of C25K and you can post to FB - this way people know I am running so I will shame myself into running.
That was day 2. I made it. Let's see what happens next...

Back in March I decided to start running. I needed to get in to better shape for myself and for my family. I started off and was motivated to do the C25k running program. I did the first week but the second week brought bad weather and I gave up with the hope that I would start again in a few weeks when the weather made it better for running.
Fast forward to April vacation. I am in Florida and I have grandparents to watch the kids while I run. I start the program. I decided to share my journal that I wrote in to hopefully give inspiration to someone.

Ok, today decided to start the c25k program again. I really want to do this. I want to run, I see what it does for all my friends who do run. What am I thinking, I am so not a runner and my chest is big. Am I really going to do this?
I come back from my run and I did it! Now don't get too cocky now, it was only running for 60 seconds. Ahh, it was only short spurts but I did it. I made the whole run. It was 11 am which next time I need to do it earlier in the morning the beginning of the very hot part of the day is BRUTAL. Will rethink my running time.
Very proud of myself. I love this new little app that allows me to listen to PANDORA - Glee station and it tells me when to run/walk.
I did try this last year, a similar programs and forget it, I couldn't keep track of when to run/walk. I love technology!
I just can't believe that I was actually running and not dying. Go me! Here's to running on Tuesday.
I will update as I wrote in my journal. Maybe it will inspire you.
Have a wonderful Sunday.

I know most of you are mothers out there and make sure you get all the love you deserve today.
Last night we came up to the lake to spend Mother's day morning with my mother in law as we usually do (I can't believe hubby has the day off) and later in the day after lunch we will head down towards home and have dinner with my grandma and step-mom.
How are you spending Mother's Day?
