Training

In addition to becoming a fellow weight watcher, my husband and I are also training to run a 5k in mid-September.  After realizing that I needed new shoes (apparently your feet really do get bigger after pregnancy) I officially started training.  I know, I know.  Some of you out there will think it’s downright hilarious that I’m “training” for a 5k, but when you’ve spent the last year of your life leasing your body out to another tenant, it does take a bit to get back into the swing of things. 

Sure, I still have a LONG way to go before I’m race ready, but I’m already amazed at how much easier it is to run for a little longer and how my legs have stopped killing me when I head down the steps.  It’s pretty encouraging to see how quickly you can get in shape when you put your mind to it. 

As for my first week of WW, I feel really good.  I’ve tried really hard to have strictly core meals, but I’m sure I’ve missed on a couple of items.  However, I think just being conscious of the food choices I’m making has been a step in the right direction.  I’ve realized just how many calories I used to consume in the form of yummy cappuccinos or frozen treats.  Hopefully I’ll be able to report a great weigh in on Tuesday night!
