Couch to 5k - Day 1

We don't plan on blogging everyday about our Couch to 5k adventure but I thought I would share about day 1 of 27!
this is what the app looks like

Here is where I will be doing most of my my wee garage. It's not the most inspiring atmosphere but if I listen to music real loud, it will do the trick. You know... be content, bloom where you are planted, use what you got type thing :)

my girls stayed close and got real excited for the running parts

The 30 minutes went by pretty fast, I really enjoyed the walking bits :) It was pretty much walk 1.5 minutes and then jog 1 minute for 30 minutes total. The app is great, easy and I love how it interrupts the music you are listening to to tell you when to start jogging or walking. I was sweating like a buffalo when I was done and so so so excited to see the "Workout Complete" screen!  For a girl who has a hard time finishing things she starts.... seeing anything that says I completed something is a good thing. Even if its day one of many many more to come.

So far so good... who is starting with us? 3 times a week of this is super doable right!? 



  1. Yes super doable! Got this awhile ago for my husband who used to hate running.

  2. Hey ladies!! I am so happy I stumbled across your blog today!! I love what you're doing here - keeping it real is half the battle. ;) I wanted to leave a comment today because I really feel that anyone can do anything they put their minds to and I love the motivation and dedication you're already's awesome!

    I am hosting a few workshops this month all about nutrition and fitness and I thought maybe this is something you would be interested in doing. I work with people every day who have goals to really take control of their health and even to take their fitness goals to the next level and I realized that you just never know who those people are until you talk to them. So as a part of a special project I am focusing on this year, I am reaching out to as many people as I can because I want everyone to have the opportunity to change their life from the inside out, and I didn't want you to miss out!

    I would love to chat with you!

    In health and happiness,
