Wow where does the time go?  I had no idea how hard it is to blog everyday. You need to get into a routine I guess.
This week has been so so.  My husband has been gone out of town on business so it has been somewhat lonely but I did get some cleaning and reading done.

This morning, my dog Brady and I relaxed before work. He loves when I sit in the living room in our apartment because then he lays by the patio door looking out.
I knew I should have went for my run (Couch to 5K Week 3 day 3) then before it got  home but no I waited until it was 83 degrees and noon sun to go running.  Brady only made it maybe 10 minutes and I brought him back. Too hot for a big ole Boxer like him. Here he is after I got home 25 minutes later. He is still panting.
Not sure how he came out but he was hot. I was hot too. I hesitated to put my picture in here but I was hot and it is me.  As you can see I am terrible at taking self-portraits. Hopefully I will improve. It is harder than it looks.

I had my best time even in this heat. I am slowly improving. Now if I could get my eating in control. I am not giving up; just keep on getting up and moving forward - just like running. One foot in front of the other no matter how slow you go you are moving forward.

Have a great day!

I can't believe I haven't blogged since Monday. I have  meant to check in every day.

I haven't done very well this week. Maybe it is because I haven't blogged or maybe I haven't blogged because I didn't do well. What comes first the chicken or the egg?

My husband was out of town during the week and I went out to dinner a few times with friends and I just don't do good eating out. I really need to do better eating out.  I had a good meal Thursday night that I really like. Gorton's blackened tilipia and a bag of frozen vegetables. I could eat that every day. It is very filling too.

I have finished Week 2 Day 1, 2, and 3 of Couch to 5K.  I start Week 3 tomorrow. I am trying to get into strength training. I need to get into a routine and make it a habit.

Okay I have a plan for this week.  I will fill in the blanks later but it mainly consists of whole food eating and moving more.  Can't go wrong with that plan. And add in sleep and fresh air and there you go!

Go out and make it a good day!

Well I thought I had blogged Sunday.  I had a good day. I did Week 1 Day 3 Couch to 5K around my apartment below with my dog Brady below.

Yesterday I had a busy day with my niece for her birthday. We shopped until we dropped.  One funny episdode showed us unknowingly trying on the same shirt and similar sweater. She called me and asked me to see how a shirt looked and when I went to her fitting room I had on the same shirt.

I am planning to doing Couch to 5K  Week 2 Day 1 today.  I feel a little bit of a failure doing it for the third time. I was successful for the first two times, but just have to find a way to keep it up.  When I trained for my half marathon a year ago I was doing really good.  I was up to running 9 miles.  I need to get back there. I have been feeling better - less pain in my joints lately.

So this is the first day of the rest of my life. Isn't it always?
Anyhow, my friends have convinced me to try this again. I am not sure but I thought I would try.
I live in suburban Detroit, Michigan now.
I started Couch to 5K again yesterday.  I have completed the program twice before, but I have slacked off and need to get more running in. I have been walking and running but I want to run more. So here I go.
Today I did Week 1 Day 2 at Kensington Metro Park. A little chilly but nice day.
