Update on me!

I've been busy eating healthy and working my butt off at the gym! :)  Finally I made it to the gym!  And I ran on the treadmill and I don't have any crazy stories to report back.  I didn't fall on my butt, I didn't run out of breath which means of course I didn't die!  I did it!  Yippee!

You'll probably laugh at me for what I did but I'll post it anyway...

Day 1 of my scheduled run/walk for weight loss was:

Walk 10 minutes

Next 6 minutes alternate running 1 minute and walking 1 minute

Walk 4 minutes.

I did this plus then did some strength training (leg press, leg ext. etc.)

I was POOPED!  I was shaky and tired by the time I was done but I felt great!  I had a great afternoon and just had a little spring to my walk!

I should also mention the night before while at my moms house I did this exact run/walk on her treadmill.  So that's 2 days in a row!  You should be proud! :)

On thing I did notice while I was running on the treadmill today was I need to invest in some new shoes and some new shorts/pants.  My shoes hurt my feet and made a lovely blister at the back of my heal which peeled and starting burning like crazy half way through my workout.  Plus the shorts I was wearing were really riding and causing my legs to rub together.  This is not a pleasant feeling and it makes me a little nervous running while trying to fix the shorts that are riding up in all the wrong places.

That'll be my next investment.  Some new gym wear.  Any suggestions???  I'll be posting with a few things I find and might be interested in purchasing! So stay tuned for the post!
