After posting a help message on FB last night and some great input from friends, I've thought about it all day. I hadn't decided to go for it until after work and checked my FB again (you all know you live there too). I had a message from a guy I went to high school with. He was telling me how he thought my idea about a blog was interesting and that he too is on a quest to get fit again. So that did it for me...at that moment I decided, "I'm doing it!" And here I am!! So Jered we'll figure out this "blog thing" together. My hope is that all of you, my friends, will help to keep me motivated and accountable on my quest.
So after some thinking and some great input from friends...I've decided to go with Kodi and call my blog MELTON AWAY THE POUNDS! Thanks Kodi - you're way more creative than I am!
Now that that's out of the way...for those of you reading this - thanks for taking the time to even read. I ask that you check out my posts in the future and help keep me accountable. Like I said, I'm on a quest. I know each year we all say we're making a New Years resolution to lose weight. Well, NOT ME. I don't do the whole resolution thing...I never stick with it so why even start. However, this year I did for the first time ever, write down some goals for the year (thanks to some awsome friends and a great goal book - you know who you are). One of my top goals was not to lose weight, but to get into shape. For the past few years I keep seeing where some friends (who I may mention later) have started running and have really enjoyed it and it's helped to make some major changes in their lifes. So that's what I decided to do. When I moved back to Tulsa the first of February, I decided that I would start working out in the mornings. And that's what I've been doing for going on 4 weeks now. I didn't want to have to bother my wonderful brother-in-law to be my personal trainer so I decided to start the Couch to 5k program.
As some of you may have read on my FB post I have been running in the mornings. Yesterday was Day 1 of Week 3. Tommorrow I'll try Day 2, we'll see how it goes. For those of you that know me know, I'm somewhat of a perfectionist and if I can't do it all and right, then I can't move on...So, that being said it may take me more than the 9 weeks to make a 5K - but I WILL GET THERE!
So here's to counting calories (which I've started too) and running!
Let me know what you think about my blogging idea and the blog itself. I know some days there may be a lot and others nothing at all...but I am new at this.
