Firstly, please bear with me – I am trying to get my head around all of this blogging stuff, and am working on my page currently. Thanks!
Why am I blogging? Accountability really. I am already a member of Slimming World, and the weekly weigh ins make me accountable for my weight. I am, in part, accountable for my exercise in so far as I go with a friend and have activity dates, but I want to start running again. I also want to be successful at it. I don’t want to start running with someone (maybe other than M) as it’ll only dishearten me (I can be intensely competitive and a sore loser).
How am I going to throw my weighty bulk into running? Slowly! And using Couch to 5k. I’ll be starting in February. (the first week of, not the end of). A couple more good weight loss weeks and I’ll feel better about my poor old knees having to absorb the shock of weight bearing activity!
I need to break the food/reward cycle, so will be having a think about non-food rewards for my weight loss milestones and running treats. All suggestions welcome!
Thanks for reading!
