I did a happy dance in the bathroom this morning. Why? Because when I weighed myself, the number on the scale started with a ONE! 199.6, but still, I’m in ONEderland!! The last time I was in ONEderland was about 8 years ago, so seeing that number on there was almost surreal. But once I realized it was real, I started jumping up and down and bopping around the bathroom. It was a good time. 🙂 I am so pumped!
My excitement is even greater because today I completed Day 1 of Week 1 of Couch to 5K, and I am so proud of myself! I jogged at a very manageable pace (5.0 and 5.1) and walked at 4.1, and I made it through the whole 20 minutes. I was psyching myself up for it to be really hard, but it wasn’t as bad as I told myself it would be (which is usually how my pessimism turns out, haha). I am looking forward to the next session on Thursday but also dreading it because I know that it’s not going to be easy, but even if I want to quit, I won’t!
I am toying with the idea of finding a 5k to register for, so I have a definite goal to aim for, but I’m also nervous because what if I sign up and then don’t make it through the whole 9 weeks of Couch 2 5k? What would you do? Sign up now, or wait until the end of the program?
