1st week doing the 3 mile track.

My main goal for 2013 is to become fit. I signed up for a color run 5k in October. This is my first run ever and I want to run it not walk.

So I'm going to share my journey .

The week of May 13th I walked a total of 15 miles. Even though it was walking it's something I'm very proud of. A friend and I even threw in a hour and a half Zumba class one night, it kicked our butts.
Slowly I'm trying to work on what I'm eating,why not lose weight at the same time. The first thing I've done is givin up soda. Even though I  gave up soda before and lasted almost 2 years my pregnancy had strong cravings so I'd started again. Once the caffeine headaches are over it's not so hard.

The new thing I'm trying are salads, I've always had salad but have covered it with ranch and it's such a heavy dressing I thought I'd try something new. The salad from Panera Bread and Atlanta Bread are really good and much lighter. So I went online and found the recipes. They are so yummy. My favorite part of the salads are the strawberries and the mandarin oranges.

Now that my first week is over I lost 3 pounds. However on Friday I caved in and had a burger from Sonic and I'm back up one, crazy how fast that happens. I'm really happy to have a friend walk with me it gives me more motivation, and when my husband walks with me he pushes me to work harder, I'm very grateful.
