W3D2 of the Couch to 5K training plan

Just a quick update to let you know I'm sticking to the big IT!!!

Yes, I have stayed on track with the plan and I feel stronger everyday.
I can not believe ( how quickly the mind forgets) the difference in my Fibro and my mood swings are so much better. I can honestly say, I feel happier and more content than I have in a long time. Let's pray this will last!!

I still need to loose a few pounds. Since going vegetarian, I have gained a little over 5 pounds. Before you think anything, on a 5'2 frame that is too much! Besides, I can't fit into most of my clothes, I have a muffin top. Yes, all of the weight went to my belly and upper hips!

I have probably substituted carbs for protein and that doesn't work. I was much better last winter,  I made lentil soups every week and that was satisfying to me and my weight stayed on track. This summer I have tried different pasta dishes, salads, fruits, vegies and Ice cream!!!  Awww, that may be the clue!!  I need more than a SALAD!

 Here is the walk/run for today. I also did 5 min warmup and cool down.

Enjoy your weekend,


  1. I'm finishing up Week 2 of my Synergy workout plan- there are 8 weeks altogether. It was daunting last week, but this week it feels pretty darn good! I love the way you start noticing a difference and it's all good! I hope the weather will cooperate and I'll get to start the C25k in a few weeks!

  2. Stay with it! Went for a run this morning and it was wonderful because it was totally overcast! Too many hot, sunny days this summer. Nothing like Autumn running!

  3. Good evening Shawn. It was so great to hear from you. I didn't know you were starting this up again. I so loved reading you here. Now you have to add an update by e-mail gadget so I don't miss your posts. I'm terrible at getting around all the time.
    Keep up the terrific work. Take care and have a blessed evening!
