Let's Get Healthy!

Hey everyone!

I was doing so good with weight loss and then Vegas...and winter hit and bam! Not so good. But I'm back on track with WW and upping my exercise.

Just like my OLW of believe, I believe I can do this!  I'll be blogging once a month about this, posting recipe links, apps, exercise ideas, etc. That way it's all in one blog post :)

I started at the beginning of this month using the Couch to 5 K app.

You get your choice of trainers. I went with the nice one because I don't feel like being yelled at by a drill sergeant. The fact that I'm doing the app is miracle enough, don't want to be yelled at lol.


You can do 3-5 days a week, but it's 3 minimum. I love that it measures my distance. And I absolutely love that I can have music playing from my playlist!

ActiveNetwork (the C25K company) also has it for 10k they said on their website. It's called 5K-10K (original huh?).

So far, I'm really enjoying it. You warm up walk (I stretch first before all of it), then jog for a little, walk, then jog, etc. Then there is a cool down walk. After the second day, I was already getting faster. But boy did my legs hurt (well I'm also doing the squat challenge for the month and am supposed to do 160 squats today!)

Are you doing C25K? Have you done it? What's your favorite health app?

  2. I can't run because of my asthma but I'd love to try an app like this . I am on my fitness pal but its not motivating to me. Its just data entry. Also, maybe I need a fit bit. Do you have one of those? Thanks for the timely post!
