Getting Busy!

First of all, welcome and thanks to my new followers!!

Well, I did it. I dragged myself out and did the couch 2 5k day 1 today. Actually it was day 2 (phone wouldn't take it back to day 1), I spent a lot of time dragging the flippin' dog and mixed up a bunch of the run/walk times because I was so busy trying to control what the dog was doing I didn't hear the change.

BUT for the most part I did it.

I've decided that I am going to just have to get up early to do it. I'm not going to take the dog either. The exercise is good for him but it's just way too hard to concentrate on myself while he's all over the place. There were way too many people roaming around their yards and people with their dogs out and not on leashes. HELLO LEASH LAW! I don't care if you have a poodle. I don't want to be responsible for your dog getting messed up when it runs at my dog. Oh and when I got back I realized I had my tank top on backwards. AWESOME!

Tomorrow starts the first day of Mama Laughlin's challenge over on Facebook. The group has almost 3000 people in it. Freaking crazy! I can't imagine having so many followers. Way to motivate!! Hopefully this helps me keep it together and keep moving down the scale. Things I got motivated to do already:

I drank over 128 ounces of water.
Went to GNC and bought 2 samples of protein powder to try for protein shakes
Bought some vitamins
Ran day 1 of c25k
Took a totally unflattering "after work out" picture of myself in the mirror.

Actually that was like 50 pictures and this one was the "good enough" out of the group. I don't think I'm ever going to figure out where to look!

My plan for the week is to ride my bike tomorrow and then alternate between bike riding and the c25k.

I should probably put some laundry away and clean my room too. Priorities you know?
