|These guys were along my path both days this week of exercise. There was a lot of people on the treck on day 1, this time though (being a lot colder), it was just the ducks and I.|
I used to weigh in on Wednesdays (and basically have made that day my weigh in days always- I have tracked my weight for the past few years with weigh ins only on Wednesdays). That being said, I weighed in today and I'm happy to report- I am down 2.4 lbs from last week! Woo!
|day 2 of couch-to-5k|
This time I'm trying to not use my exercise points if I can help it, and extremely limit how many weekly points I consume on my 'bad days.'
Check out my stats from my exercise today along the canal towpath by my house (Thanks to my new MapMyRun app):
|I know the stats are that great, but hey, we all gotta start somewhere.|
I download a few mixes from the RockMyRun, turn on my Map with MayMyRun, then switch over to the specific day in the training for 5kRunner. tada! I have my treck tracked, time and calories and milage tracked, tunes to get me pumped and a little voice trainer to tell me when to walk and run. ;)
|My mini tracking journal|
As far as food goes, I am back on the Weight Watchers points plus- since that I have found to be the most successful way to lose weight and both my hubs and I know the points breakdown by now.
I've been trying to ramp up my fruits too- since fruit is a great thing (plus granola/cereal) to have before a run. I've been having a banana and a cereal bar before my runs.

So, cheers to another exercise day down and another good day of tracking done. *fingers crossed* I can actually keep it up and someday get to the point where I can run a 5k again. ;)
