morning work outs

i completed week 1 day 2 of couch to 5k yesterday morning before work... meaning i got up to go to the gym at 5:20am. i start work at 7, so i wanted ample time to exercise, shower and get ready.

i'm hoping i can keep it up for the 2 weekday couch to 5k days i'll have each week (there are 3 programs each week and i'll be doing them on saturday, monday and wednesday), but as they increase intensity i may have to adjust to after work again. i felt great all day and i think working out in the morning makes for a more positive day.

in other news... i bought a swimsuit! just one to swim laps at the y, but it was the least traumatic swimsuit shopping experience i've ever had. i chose the cute black and white polka dot one over the blue sporty one... it's a one piece with a wrap look in the front. i really don't think i'll ever have the hutzpa to wear a two piece... ever, but they are so cute. maybe my mind will slowly catch up with my body (i'm definitely not ready yet body wise either haha).

have a lovely tuesday!


  1. Grats on the swimsuit! And on the workouts! I haven't braved swimsuit shopping yet, nor even shorts, but I believe the summer of 2010 is going to be the best ever ... not because it will be the first time I've been slim, but because it will be the summer I'll really know I've reclaimed life!

  2. I'm happy you were able to enjoy the swimsuit shopping! You're totally getting there, and you're looking great! Keep it up :)

  3. sounds like a plan oct, summer 2010 will be awesome!

    thanks brandi!

  4. Congrats on the progress with Couch to 5K. And awesome to hear that you got a swimsuit for the swimming parts of your workout. You will get into that two piece. Your confidence will slowly build as your realize how much the work is paying off!
