So a brief introduction... I am a 36 year old mum of 4. Never done any sort of fitness and approx 7 stone overweight . I've always put the kids first and slowly but surely weight has creeped on over my 14 year marraige mainly the last 6 years due to the loss of my mum to the dreaded C word.
I went to the Drs, well actually I seemed to be spending more and more time there for various aches pains, depression.....etc etc. The dr offered me a gastric band and this was my eye opener I am morbidly obese and this is what's causing me so many health problems. I kindly declined the offer and decided that my problem was my sedentary lifestyle and the comfort eating and evening alcohol beverages that made me comfortable.
So for the last few weeks I have invested in a good sports bra ( not easy to find at 44FF 🙈) some trainers and the C25K programme. Then built up the courage to go!
I dragged out two of my kids with me and did day 1. It was hard but I did it! The 1 min of jogging was slow, I wasn't out of puff but my calves were on fire! I nearly cried but didn't and once I got back to the 5 min cool down I nearly cried at my achievement which nearly made the pain worth it 😉 Covered 2.53 km not to shabby I don't think.
Day 2 I dragged 1 child with me, it was hard but marginally better..... 2.56 km covered
And this morning I did Day 3 ( had rest days in between) and covered 2.63 km so I'm slowly improving ☺️ I am so proud of myself!
I am not looking forward to starting week two because I struggle with the 1 min jog, I do it but I'm nearly in tears on some of them.....am I ready to push it more? Or do I trust the programme?
The only thing is I have experienced mild nausea about an hour after I get home on both day 1 and day 3..... Unsure if it's linked and have just drank water and eaten a small meal which seems to settle it!
Apart from that I feel pretty happy ☺️
