    Here goes nothing... again!

    I have managed to lose 14lbs since the start of the year and miserably gained 3lbs of those back! So, it has been decided that I will no longer be a procrastinator and will get off my fat backside and do w1d1 of the c25k plan this evening :eek:

    I am really nervous for a whole host of reasons. The food thing I've got down so if I stick to this then I WILL lose the weight and not just be talking about it anymore.

    I have to run on a main road in public... scares the hell out of me! So I might need a kick up the backside from anyone who might read this sometimes :rolleyes:

    I could be a minime by the end of the year and I haven't prepared myself for the possibility yet! Once I start regularly exercising there's no going back!

    Cool Running :: The Couch-to-5K Running Plan This is the link for the couch25k plan in case you don't know what it is.

    Today I had a bowl of cereal for my brekkie and a buttered bagel for lunch but I'll have a fruit snack this afternoon to tide me over until dinner which will be low cal home made pork chilli with rice & salad then at around 8pm I'll go for my walk/jog.

    Wish me luck!!

    Good luck!

    I have looked in to the C25K programme and would love to try it but I am not confident to run in public yet, and can't afford the gym fees to use a machine!

    One day...

    I'm trying to walk lots, but I'm hoping to start running when I feel more confident :)

    Thanks everyone for your comments!

    Well... I would've started on Monday night but I've lost one of my running shoes!! I am going to have to spend the afternoon raking through everything until I find them! I just hope I havent left one of them at my sister's (in Glasgow!) otherwise I'll either have to wait 3 weeks or fork out for another pair and still have to wait until next week :(

    At least I have my dog and can still take her for walks eh?

    Anyway, food for today will go:

    B: tea & toast 350? ish
    S: banana 100ish
    L: wrap & scrambled eggs (with onion & tomato) 450ish
    S: yogurt or fruit 100ish
    D: Gammon steak, mash & onions 500

    Plus an afternoon walk with the dog 30mins and around 2-3 hours ironing this afternoon :)

    Should be a good day people!

    Choc x

    Hi & a belated Good luck! :D Haven't really been on here for longer than a few minutes lately so missed your posts :rolleyes:.

    I have been exercising for about three months now and have really wanted to try running but I was hesitant because I am big and was worried about my knees...but I got talking to another big girl who goes to my gym who runs for like half an hour (jealous :jelous: lol) solidly and I was asking her about her knees and she said that when she first started she used to get a kind of achey feeling in her ankles but as she kept at it the pain gradually lessened....so just wondering how long you've been running and if you did/still get any pains in your legs? ...beyond the obvious exercise pain. :p As I'm thinking of trying out the 'Couch to 5k Running Plan' you suggested, it looks like a good plan that starts off gently (thanks for the recommendation). Anyway will be going gym tomorrow so will try out the first workout and see how it goes.

    P.S. Also hope you find your other trainer lol;)

    Nova - When I first started exercising my knees hurt like hell so I would suggest to you to walk as much as you can everyday and exercise properly every 3 days until your knees get used to it. I found even exercising every 2 days too much for my knees to begin with but if you walk on your inbetween days it should be OK.
    Definately start out with the c25k - what harm could it really do? If it's no good, find something else :D

    Yeah thanks for the advice I'm definitely going to try it out, would love to be a runner one day...feel my overall fitness has really improved over the last few months so hopefully I will be okay to tackle the C25K, but I'll start slowly. Thanks again and all the best. :)

    Well... Zumba was brill! It was a workout that a) didnt feel like one and b) didnt leave me sore this morning :)

    My food was alright yesterday but when I got home from class last night I was really hungry so I had what I had for dinner again :eek:

    Today WILL be fine though :)

    I'm currently up waiting for my sofa covers to arrive from Ikea (which I'm incredibly excited about!) and am just about to potter around doing some housework before I have breakfast.

    My food for today looks like this:

    B: weetabix & 1% milk (150)
    S: fruit to the tune of (150-200)
    L: Tuna salad with perhaps 1 slice of bread if I'm still hungry. (300 or 400)
    S: yogurt (100)
    D: gammon steak, mash potato & dry fried onions (500) (1400 at the most hopefully!)

    And a 30 min walk with the dog this afternoon. Not to mention the hours of housework - cleaning windows and the like! ;)
