New Goals!

Okay, so I still haven't been blogging much and I admit that I spend too much time on Facebook...LOL! I often have so many things I want to blog about and then the day escapes me among the house, work, family and "me" things. Yes, I am adding a "me" category. It's always been there but I need to keep it in front of me.

So last week I finished my 40-day yoga challenge. I did it! WOO HOO! It was a good experience. I learned that I am stronger than I thought I was and most importantly, that I CAN find time to workout. I was going to yoga 6 days a week for 60-75 minutes per class. It was intense but I did enjoy it and my body was loving it.

TO keep the momentum going, I started a "Couch to 5K program". It's a free podcast that starts you jogging short intervals gradually working up to running 30 minutes straight. I'm not a big fan of running but I don't "hate it. I completed last week with 8-60 second intervals and did pretty well. I was able to complete all 3 workouts. I like the podcast in that the creator of the podcasts tells you when to run and when to walk and there is good music. I began Week 2 today. I'm doing 90 second intervals this week.

I took a week off of yoga and I miss it already. My plan is to get three running sessions, two weight training and three yoga classes. Even though this is a busy week....who I am kidding? every week is busy....I will find the time.

So 5K Thanksgiving morning!
