Week 4 Day 1

Week 4 - Day 1

That's right, I started Week 4 today. I wasn't too sure I was going to be able to, since I've been a bit under the weather the past two days. However, I decided when I got up this beautiful Saturday morning that I was going to have to make up for missing the past two days...and make up I did. After two hours in the gym and 600 calories burned, I was exhausted. Today was the first time that I ran 5 minutes. I know to some of you that may not sound like much, but you have to remember four weeks ago running for a solid minute was not that easy. Today on the other hand...I ran two 5 minute segments and two 3 minute segments. And surprisingly it wasn't as hard as I expected it to be. One more exciting note - my goal is to lose 2lbs per of Friday morning I have lost 5 since last week! I'm a little ahead of schedule, but that's ok! So once again, yea for me!


Anyone that would like to post any ideas on things that have worked for you, please feel free to post comments. I have had some readers ask about making it more of a 'public' blog...however, I really can't do that with this particular's tied to my personal email account. Sorry! The only way I know to make it more 'public' is for people to post comments, suggestions, thoughts, etc.


As I have said before I'm all about helping others to stay get and stay motivated so that we can all get HEALTHY together. I know some of you would rather lose weight, but I've decided it's not necessarily about weight. It's about healthiness! I don't want to start a diet and lose weight just to gain it all back eventually. I know this is an adjustment to my life. For that reason I have made the commitment not only to myself but my friends and readers to make a change to things. And due to that I have started counting calories. This is day 7 and surprisingly it's not as hard as I thought it would be. It is extremely disturbing the amount of calories in foods we all like. Such as McDonald's Quarter Pounder with Cheese...Just take my word...if you knew you would never eat one again!!!


If anyone out there would like to share their story about their quest, please do so under the next blog I post called...The Quest! I would love to hear your successful stories (and those that may not be as successful...we all have them.) Any suggestion you may have on things you think might help or hurt any and all of us on the quest to overcome the curse of living in such an unhealthy America.
