Lunch on the "Run"

Lunch at my desk...again.

Those of you who know me, know that I have always struggled with my weight. I am not a "Naturally Thin" (though I can't wait to read your book Bethenny!) type, and have to work hard and be disciplined to maintain my target weight - which I am not yet at. It is especially difficult to eat right and excersize when you are a "superwoman" (smiling) with a full "plate" - no pun intended. I have vowed to begin training for a 5K - so all my readers can hold me accountable! My girlfriend shared with me this cool training download for your ipod called Couch-to-5K.
The Couch-to-5K Running Plan is a running schedule and has apparently helped thousands of new runners get off the couch and running 3 miles in just two months.


I hear these runners talk about how addicted you become to running after a while and how they just have to have - I have to say. I'm not buying it (no offense Ang:-) BUT - I will see for myself. I have started my journey by running (ok lets be honest, jogging) just a bit, but hope my new motivation will take me to the next level where I too will be "on the run"!

That is how I started! I am by no means a die hard runner - I get three runs in a week. Some are short. Some a long. More than anything, I enjoy the alone time and beautiful evenings. 5K training is the way to go - and you will feel amazing when you cross the finish line. I just finished my third race and it is what motivates me to get off my duff! Good luck! Download some good music and just enjoy the journey - no matter the outcome!

Wow - that is such great advice! Thanks so much for the great support, for some reason I always need a deadline. I will never be the 20 miles runner, but if I can run 3 times a week I will be so proud!
