Yes, I am very excited about it even though it isn't a lot when I look at it like this. It started with a mile on Monday, 1 on Tuesday, 2 on Thursday, 1 on Saturday, and 1 on Sunday. The weather has been gorgeous (until yesterday when it poured buckets), which helps a lot!
I am HOOKED!! I am still having pain in my foot, but I think I may just need better shoes. So, that is the project for this week...get better shoes. I am going to look for running shoes because I hear they are padded better and will be more of a help for my foot. I don't know if it will ever feel good, but I am tired of letting it dictate what I can and cannot do.
I also decided I want to start running. I used to run in jr high and high school and loved how I felt. I am definitely not built for speed, but it's great exercise. After reading Mama's Laughlin's post about her initial weight loss, I decided to follow the Couch-to-5K plan. I have done some searching for 5Ks in the area that I can train for, but haven't really found anything. That's okay, I am going to do it just for myself right now. It may take me all summer to get to the point where I can run for a full 3 miles, but anything is better than nothing!!
My eating this week has been all over the map. I started out GREAT, but then may or may not have gone to the Melting Pot this weekend with 2 of my girlfriends and ate my face off until I was going to explode. It was just that good, people!! And one of the waitresses was a good friend of mine, so she sent me home with a box of 6 of the most beautiful giant chocolate-covered strawberries "for Branson and the girls" .... I didn't tell her Branson doesn't like fruit, so I got his 2!! Back on track this week!
