I picked up my new treadmill today. Although it's currently sitting in a box which my cats are treating like a jungle gym, it's not staying there for long. It's going to be put together tomorrow morning, & my new, healthier lifestyle begins.
I've decided to do the Couch to 5k program that everyone is raving about. Since that's a 3 day a week program, & running just isn't going to cut it for my fitness goals, I invested in a workout dvd to supplement. It's one of those old school, Billy Blank tae-bo style workouts. I love those things. And if I do it with consistency, it's going to seriously help in decreasing the size of my fat ass. Bonus.
Instead of focusing on a weight loss goal, I'm going to set my sights on actually running in a 5k race at the end. I have some very fit family members who are already runners, & I'm sure I can talk them into participating. Although it seems out of reach now, I know I can do this. I cannot wait to feel the sense of accomplishment I'll have when I finish!
Wish me luck (& make sure you hold me accountable)!!
