Learning to love water....

I've been trying to get in all the H2O I'm supposed to have - but man, is it hard! I have a 32 oz mug at work and I try to get through that in the day. I probably get 40 oz during the day, but at home is where it suffers. I have to find a way to make myself continue drinking a decent amount once I'm at home. If I can figure that out, I should be able to get my 64+ oz a day.

I went to the park yesterday with some friends and we walked for about 30-40 minutes. It wasn't a super fast walk, but we kept moving the whole time. I'm hoping to get a couple more walks in this week, then start the Couch to 5K program next week.

Biggest Loser

A group of friends and I have decided to have our own Biggest Loser challenge. I'm really excited since it'll be nice to have a place to turn to talk about weight loss with friends and different food ideas, etc. We start with a weigh in on Monday and go to the beginning of June, so wish me luck!

One of the ideas I've already gotten from it is for exercise. I loathe running, but I know it's best cardio workout, so I want to try it again. One of the girls showed us a program that helps you work up to running a 5k in only 9 weeks. I think I'm going to give it a try!

Here's the link if you're interested -

Starting over :-(

I've really been sucking at this lately. (Yes, sucking is the technical term for it. lol) I'm back up to 281 lbs and just haven't been doing anything about it for the past couple of weeks. Now that it's spring time, I'm hoping that being able to walk outside and enjoy the weather to kick start back into exercising on a regular basis.

I've been watching Biggest Loser every week and just can't believe the transformations of everyone on there. They seriously look like new people! Hopefully that will be me someday.
