Dusting Off the Treadmill

I actually got on the treadmill today.  I've been whining to myself that "I've got to get off my butt and start exercising" but today I actually did it.  I am hoping that can make it a habit. 

I have a crazy notion that I would like to run a 5K this fall.  I'm reading all over the blogs that people are running or training to run a 5k.  Well, if they can do it, I certainly can! (was that me that just said that?)

I'm not committing, I might weenie out but it's been floating around in my head for awhile.  I figure if I don't start training now it will never happen.  I walked/ran (mostly walked) a mile today and it was ugly.  Embarrassingly ugly.  I know it will get easier though if I just. Keep. Doing it. 

Eating went well today.  I had planned a nice healthy dinner tonight but then I realized it was just me and the kids for supper.  My son asked for an apple with peanut butter.  Well, I had a peanut butter dip recipe that I got from Food Junkie From Texas and I decide to make that for the kids.  Well, let me tell you, it was smashingly good and I think I ended up eating like 1/2 of it. After reviewing the calories, I decided I ate about 650 calories in apple and peanut butter dip so that was dinner.  Hey, it was protein and fruit so it wasn't THAT bad.  I ended the day with a 100 calorie chocolate vitatop and came in just under 1500 calories for the day.  I'd say success for the day!


  1. I'm just starting the C25K program and I'm scared. Here's hoping we'll both be able to run a 5K in the near future. Good luck!

  2. I started with one mile and now I am up to 2 miles. Just start with baby steps! You can do it.

  3. Once you get into it you will atually look forward to the darn tredmill!!! HAHAHA it will start to call your name.. LOL Im getting back into it as well. Good luck with it.. :)
