Day One - Start it Up!

Oh really. Day one? Yes. Day one. I am too tired to get out of bed at 5 to do my exercise DVD. Plan B, do it when the kids are in school and only two at home. Check. Done.

I did the Slim in Six 'Start it Up' DVD, and also the stretch DVD portion. It was hard, I was sweating. I am out of shape. I am happy to be working on me again.

I got on the scale this morning, and I was 192 pounds. Whatever. I knew it was bad, but hey I am working towards correcting that. Plus, I has my last splurge for quite some time. Thus, a bit more in weight I guess. So, I will go from 192 today, to 150/145 ish by May 2nd, 2010. That gives me a good solid plan. I am going hardcore again. Not giving up. Doing this.

So, Slim in Six (just press play 6 times a week, for six week) I am ready. I am doing this! I am really excited actually. I took my depressing 'before' photos on two camera phones, but not sure how to get them on here. So...those will have to wait. I also took most of my measurements as well.

And, this week I will be running on Wed 8/1's, Thursday a straight run of 2-5 k's for my half marathon clinic, and of course Friday which will be FINALLY 10/1's. I am so excited to be able to run for ten minutes again. Oh how I have missed running! And of course Sunday I will run with my new HM group. Love them already!!

So, I have 47 pounds to lose from my original weightloss of 90 pounds. Not so bad I guess, as I didn't do ANY exercise for 7+ months. So, today it changes. I change. I will knock those pounds away. Pound by pound. Step by step.


  1. YAY Cathy!
    Think about joining our 500 miles in 2010!

  2. Thanks Laura! Thank you for cheering me on!

    How do I record the miles? I don't have the NIKE+ system. Just my Garmin. I guess I could add them up somewhere. I did a Google converter from miles to kms.

    500 miles = 804.67200 kilometers

    I would love to be a part of it! Do you have a little write up? I will put it on the blog!

  3. Go for it Cathy. I know you can do it!
