So today I did my week 1 day of my couch to 5K. I successfully complete the whole program for today and I did not die!!! My legs may argue back on that one. But I am happy that I pushed through the god awful side cramps and the burning lungs in this 40 degree weather. And might i add I successfully did this with two 25 pound toddlers in a city mini double stroller. So not only was I carrying my 153 pounds of pure awesomeness but also pushing about another 75 pounds along the way!
The program is set to do 3 runs/jogs/walks in a week for the next 9 weeks. My plan is to still keep up with my p90x but just do that 3 days a week now and then do my couch to 5k program 3 days and have my one day of rest. Wish me luck. I am determined to stick to this. My last workout session I am ashamed to say was back in October. But before that I was on track doing some sort of exercise for 6 days out of the week. Then life happened and caused me to come to a screeching stop!
I want to be bikini body ready for the summer. I plan on s pending the summer in Florida visiting family and hopefully get to meet my new niece or nephew who is due in July!!!!
So that's my story and I am sticking with it! My husband and i even have the kids joining in. My oldest two Anthony (12) and Ally (10) have been doing some of the p90x videos with us! I love that my children are showing interest in not only supporting me and my husband but also taking the initiative and taking control of their health so early on.
I want to instill in my children that it is not skinny mommy is going for. I want to be healthy. I explained to them that being the weight I use to be was not safe for my health. That is why it is so important for me to eat right and exercise. So they will have a healthy mommy with energy to keep up with all 6 of them. I plan on living a long healthy life to see all 6 of them get married and one day have children of their own. And if they actually have the amount of children they say they want I am even going to need that energy for the many grandchildren I am going to have one day. Anthony wants about 6 too like us and Ally wants 4! That's just 2 out of the 6 kids. My heart and my arms will always be full.
Thank you for reading!! Now if this mom of 6 can find the time to get her butt in gear and exercise 6 days of week there should be no excuse for anyone else! Now get up and get moving!!!
