The second week

Each time I finish a run/walk I feel like I can accomplish anything :-) I have so much energy throughout the day. I like this nine week program (getrunning) because it's at your own pace and you are the one who determines how fast you will walk and how fast you will run. My next walk/ run will be on Thursday 01/27, I'm looking forward to it. In addition, I am also doing an abs workout once a week. I walk /run 3 times a week, which works out perfectly with my hectic schedule.

L.A marathon: Here I come

I really wanted to sleep in today but the first thought that ran through my mind was – hard work pays off and I got out of bed around 5:45am and had a can of V8. I stretched and than my friend knocked on the door. She’s definitely a morning person lol <3333 mornings don’t agree with me all the time.

We both turned on our phones and began the first workout from the getrunning app (thanks to the person who made me aware of this app) I walk/ran for 28 minutes and felt great afterwards. This may seem small to some people but for me this was a great accomplishment, my first day training for a diabetes walk/run (I’m doing with my friend Derek).

Every time I finish a “training session” it will update to my twitter page

I still have a long way to go but I’m going to do this. This is more than my weight – this is my path to health.

Taking it to the next level

Wow, it’s been a long time since I blogged, I’m really looking forward to it. First off I have to thank all of you who have supported me in my weight loss and encouraged me to keep going even after I gained the weight back. I weighed in today at 201 lbs, which means I have lost a total of 33 lbs. My weight loss is going in the right direction and I want to keep it that way.

It has been a long time goal of mine to run the 26 mile LA marathon, some of my family members have completed it and I have to say I am inspired. I’m hoping in March of 2012 to run the marathon which means I start training NOW. I will be going through a phone app (which I will talk about in my next video) and training with a friend. My first goal is to do a diabetes walk/run in a few months. I will be blogging and putting up youtube videos with my progress.

Thanks to all of you for standing by my side and believing in me, I truly appreciate all of your support <3333333
