A Major Milestone

It’s only Tuesday!!! I swear all day long I was thinking (and hoping) it was Wednesday and my week was half over. Soooo not the case.

This is what my weekly goal checklist looks like so far:

Week 1 Goals:

  • Finish my resume
  • Find 1 free thing to do
  • Cook all my meals- no restaurants (on weeknights)
  • Try yoga again and give it a chance
  • Go to the gym 3 times 1/3

I went to the gym after work today. Once again the guy at the desk didn’t know how to process my Groupon acquired gym membership and he let me right in :-) 2 free visits!

I had a MAJOR accomplishment today!

For the first time in my life, I ran a consecutive mile on the treadmill! I have been running for 1 1/2 years. I have lost over 30 pounds but I have never been able to run a consecutive mile without needing to stop because of my asthma.

I am attributing today’s success to several factors:

  • I forced myself to drink 3 12 oz bottles of water today. I hate water so much.
  • The Biggest Loser finale is on tonight and that always motivates me
  • My incredible¬† new playlist

It felt amazing! My goal for today was 3/4 mile, and by the time I got there I thought “what the hell, I’m gunna keep going.”¬† What better day to reach this milestone then on Biggest Loser Finale Night!

 

I will be glad to see this season’s contestants go. Typically I LOVE The Biggest Loser, but I just could not get into this season. The contestants were whinny and annoying. They spent more time showing the “drama” than any actual exercise.¬† Plus I still desperately miss this girl:

Happy Biggest Loser Night all!

Question:

What inspires you to live a healthy life?

    Congratulations! That is a HUGE accomplishment! I also suffer from asthma, and I always said, I could never be a runner. Believe it or not, you just broke the ties. I remember after I could do one mile, you become overcome with the enegy to complete your second! :)

      Thanks so much! I really hope you are right. I have a 5 k this month and I was planning on walk-running it but being able to run more than walk would be a huge accomplishment for me :-)

    Congrats congrats congrats! That is the best feeling ever! :) Seriously running is so hard as it is, and to keep at it with ashma is seriously motivating to hear!
