I am going to post this on here as well as c25k. After my successes with weight loss and fitness over the previous 18 months, I have lapsed since the beginning of the year. I was blaming the weather, starting with hurricane force winds on the 3rd of January and seemingly non stop wet and windy since. However, that was not really a good enough reason as there was always the treadmill. I was still going to jog Scotland and aqua-fit but my portion control eating habits lapsed as well.
So today, more or less on the first anniversary of my graduation, I was out with Laura again on week 4. (The reason for starting there is that my I Pod isn't working properly & I can only play that podcast. I will be buying a new player of some sort, but that's scary, as the hardest part of c25k for me last year was the technology! :-).)
On the eating front, the meals are planned & calorie counted, there is a batch of home made hummus in the fridge and a big pan of soup on the stove. I plan to kick off the 3 kilos I put on over the winter plus the 2 I didn't previously get rid of.
No marathon this year, but will be doing 5 & 10 ks and maybe consider a half next year.
Now I have my bus pass I will use it to get to town to the gym a couple of times a week as well.
I am really looking forward to doing this and feeling as fit as I did last year.
