I finished Day 1 of Week 4 in my Couch to 5K challenge. I think I am going to die. Remember people, I am terribly unfit. Easily 100 pounds overweight right now. I pounded the hell out of that treadmill this morning. Yes, I completed it. I truly thought at least 2 times I was going to have to stop as my legs felt like they were seizing up on me. But, I didn't. And, I am pretty sure my body is going to make me pay for it ALL DAY.
Nevertheless, here are my results!
Over the weekend, I did some more blog reading and video watching. I need to stay inspired and well prepared with knowledge about what I am up against. It wasn't easy either. I am so weak when it comes to giving into my husband's snack attacks. I did try to not keep up with him though. That man can tuck away 15 popsicles, 6 doughnuts, 6 zingers, whatever I make for dinner, Ruffles with bean dip and canned nuts, And, that's just Sunday! And he's a normal sized guy. With all that crap around the house, I invariable find myself eating it too. I can't be doing that anymore! Plus it makes me feel like death warmed over the next morning. All the rougher on me to finish my workout, I have no doubt.
Everything I have been reading is that the surgery is doing all the work for me the first 7 months post-op. It's a tool...and in that 7 months, it's my responsibility to relearn everything I ever knew or did about healthy eating. It's not uncommon for people to regain weight after, or get on a slippery slope back into bad habits. I DO NOT want to be in that statistic. I am only doing this once. When I get a healthy weight I am going to allow a 5 pound fluctuation, but I can't let things get out of control.
