Fit Tuesday

This week has been my first week back into the workout mode.  Right now, I have a love/hate relationship with it.  I have done 5 days of C25K since last Tuesday and let's just say I am re-learning HOW to exercise.  Two key parts of working out are water and stretching...basic things that make such a difference!!  On day 3, I didn't drink any water until my workout, didn't really stretch before hand,  and the whole workout was awful.  My calf muscles felt like they were ripping off my bones!  (A bit dramatic, right?)  I cried for about half of the time, but kept moving, kept going, kept willing myself forward.  It was a bit cathartic, until I realized I am sabotaging my own success if I don't do the things necessary to make it easier to work out.

Did some googling and found a great stretch routine here.  It's tailored for runners, but I think it would be a great routine for most basic workouts.

So, this week is going to be different! I also made up a WW food log, re-sized from this one.  I made enough pages to make a monthly booklet.  So far, so good!

I am going to start doing my weekly weigh-ins next week...since I didn't weight at all last week.  So, hopefully I can report a big change!


  1. It's hard work! Good for you. The weight will start to fall off if you stick with it. My co-worker did great 25 pounds! Happy day to you!

  2. Way to hop back on the wagon! I just started counting my WW points again.

  3. Good for you! I made the decision to get back on my weight watchers plan this week. I had lost 60 pounds 2 years ago and have slowly been creeping back up. Time to nip that in the bud! Sending healthy vibes your way!

  4. My fiance and I are kicking off on a fitness/heathy eating routine today, we're gonna hit the bike trail after work! I like your little booklet idea, I need one of those! I wanna lose at least 30 lbs before the wedding in 6 months, lol. Best of luck on your workouts!
