it's time i got back to the good life

hey all! let's see... what to say...

I RAN ON THE TREADMILL!! haha, well not ran, jogged really and only when the man told me too... i am officially doing Couch 2 5k. i was going to wait til i finished the second day tomorrow, but i think that just gives me the opportunity to ditch the idea last minute... f%$# that! i am doing this and i'm gonna rock it. nuff said.

i am thrilled that i overcame my irrational fear of the treadmill... more specifically... flying off the treadmill, hitting my head and waking up to realize i passed out after a failed treadmill experience. i realize the treadmill is the poor man's version of outdoor running, but i want to get comfortable with this before i branch out.

more details on the next 8 weeks as they become available...


  1. Great job! I have a treadmill fear too :)

  2. COUCH TO 5K! I did that too! It's an awesome program! You will do great! Let me know if you have any questions.

  3. I also have that fear. My inherant clumsiness doesn't help.

    I like that song :)

  4. You're an inspiration! Well done!

  5. I can't wait to read more. I really hope you documented how you lost so much weight so quickly. Awesome!

  6. Yay for treadmill!!

    I was exactly the same way.. about being afraid of it. And flying off it :-)

    But, now I can't stay off it! :-)

  7. i love a comment or six! thanks guys :)

    dina, i can't imagine you scared of anything, lol.

    anthony, yaaay! i will definitely do so... and i will research your experience on your blog.

    tricia, any fan of weezer is a friend of mine!

    blahbloggirl, thanks so much!

    heather, thanks! well, i started low carb last october and also joined the y, my body likes this combo i guess.

    chai, i'm hoping to feel the same way soon... not sure about it yet :)

  8. Woo-hoo! Well done you - been doing the C25K too and just started the running on the treadmill thing. I have been really scared of letting go of the handrails in case I fall off as well - glad I am not the only one scared of that, lol!

    Keep up the good work!
