How cool. I ran 8 times for 60 seconds each!

Today I started my Couch to 5k workout. It was tough but the endorphins were a plus. I have been pretty blue since Garrett's passing and I knew working out would lighten my mood. And for me it is a way of honoring the memory of him by living my life to the fullest and by working hard every day to continue to lose this weight.

I did a great job with eating small meals today and drinking 64oz of water! I am just taking things one day at a time. Sometimes I have to take things one hour at a time.

I also have been very busy with school. I want to finish my AA this year and move on to my teaching degree.

I can't tell you how grateful I am for all of your support out there in blog land.

Sweet Dream everyone. May you all have a successful day tomorrow!


  1. Woot! I started a modified couch to 5k. I am not adhering to the 9 weeks rule, as I'm pretty sure its going to take me more than double that. I want to be able to run though!

  2. This is great, Jen. You did so well. I couldn't maintain their pace in April, but I just kept at it. Last week, I was able to run the entire distance (3.1 miles of SLOW running!). It definitely can happen. Stay with it.

  3. Awesome job on starting the C25K!!! Woot on you!!! When is your race? I'm going to tune into your blog and see how you are doing!!!

  4. Good for you! Exercise always brightens my mood as well.

  5. I wasn't as close to Garrett as you were, but we did trade emails from time to time and I was really rooting for him in his struggles to reclaim his health.

    As for C25K, it will really bust through the barriers of what you believe you can do. I know it did for me...

    Best of luck on your journey. I look forward to seeing you celebrate a lot of milestones.
