C25K, Water intake, & Bubble guts

Posted by mrssparklingpersonality on January 11th, 2012 |Filed Under Uncategorized | 7 Comments

Okay, I know the title for this blog post is all kinds of random, so let’s just take it one topic at a time, huh?! 🙂

First, I downloaded the C25K App onto my phone and it’s epically awesome & cool! If you’ve never heard of C25K, it basically stands for “Couch to 5K”. This little program helps you to transform from a couch potato into 5K-running, lean, mean machine….and all in 9 short weeks! (Well, maybe not the lean, mean part).

Now, let me tell you why my App is so Uber-Cool. It is so easy to use, first of all. Second, it automatically indicates when you are supposed to walk/jog. Then, once you’ve finished with your session, it checks off that you’ve completed that day AND automatically loads the following session. Wowzers! Ok, maybe I’m a little too excited about my stinkie little app, but I’m also looking forward to being able to jog a 5K!

Moving on from that to my habit-a-week challenge, which was to increase my water intake. Haven’t been doing so splendiforously with that one. It’s actually linked to my third topic, so I’ll dive right on in…

I got a major case of the bubble guts yesterday. I’m talking queasy, morning-sickness type of bubble guts (and no, I’m not preggers!) Ugggghhhhh…. it was not a pretty sight. I could barely eat or drink. Today is a little bit better because I’ve been able to drink fluids and eat crackers. But I’m not drinking to try to meet some water goal. I’m just trying to get myself better so I can get back to normal. I missed playing with my boys last night. I had to lie down on the couch and supervise their activities from that position. Talk about an ineffective way to watch a 2-year old and a 1-year old! They wreaked total havoc in the house…. But that’s another post all together.

Speaking of 2-year old, my oldest turns three next week Monday! I want him to remember me as a skinny, active, fun-loving mommy…not a tub-o-lard, couch potato mommy. People say it’s best to do things for yourself, but thinking about my children gives me motivation too….

Okay! I’m done now! 🙂
