I just finished my morning jog. I needed a thread to post in. I hope it's ok to start a new one!<br><br>
Anyway, I'm in the first week of Couch to 5K. Also doing 100 push-ups. Gonna start weight training today too, as soon as I dust off my weight bench.<br><br>
So, work hard and good luck everyone! You can do it!

Meant to do P90X today but got sidetracked with stuff going wrong. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> Nothing awful, just time-consuming. But tomorrow is P90X and study day! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"><br><br>
Edit: forgot to add goals!<br><br>
P90X, though I might miss a few days here and there (like while traveling).<br>
Less cookies than I ate last month...<br>
More beans<br>
More fruit - been awful since getting home

September's goal is to not gain weight and actually stick to no junk food this month.

Did the week one C25K workout, which is a five minute walk, and then alternating sixty seconds of jogging with ninety seconds of walking. That lasts for twenty minutes. That leaves me about five minutes away from home, which I walk.<br><br>
It's a lot harder than the thirty second plan of last month. A lot harder than I expected it to be.<br><br>
I also did 33 push-ups, according to the plan here for Week Two. <a href="http://hundredpushups.com/week2.html" target="_blank">http://hundredpushups.com/week2.html</a><br><br>
And I saw a jack rabbit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">)<br><br>
I want to tune up my diet for September too. I tend to eat too much junk.

Same as yesterday, but I saw a coyote. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
Didn't do push-ups, but took the push-up test. I can do 16 in a row, so I am still in the beginner category, but that's not bad, considering that two weeks ago I could only do one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I felt like I was retaining water, so I cut back on salt and decided to weigh myself today. I now weigh ANOTHER pound heavier and I don't feel like I'm retaining much now. I will NOT let myself hit the next big number. I need to start weening myself off Zyrtec, see if that helps. I'm looking at myself in the mirror right now and I don't look or feel 15 pounds heavier than I did in March. My pants are a little tight, but my measurements are exactly the same.<br><br>
Yesterday for lunch, instead of my usual unhealthy restaurant meal, I ordered a salad (from my work) and modified it a lot. I got the dressing on the side and dipped my fork into it for each bite. I didn't even use half of a small ramekin. I also threw away more than half of the fried onions that were on top that I usually eat. I ordered no cheese, so it was: extra lettuce, avocado, corn, tomato, there was supposed to be beans but I just realized they forgot them, cilantro, and veggie chik'n.

Aw you aren't bringing the thread down dana.<br><br>
Taking a rest day. It feels so wrong not doing anything! I must be addicted. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
I'm wearing a dress that used to be too tight though, so that is rewarding. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Last night was rough, worked 10 hours. By the time I got my break, I was so shaken from the crazy rush that I could barely eat. I just got home and even though I know I should have a snack before bed, I just can't eat. I hate that I don't get 10 minute breaks at my job, it's just not doable, just 1-30 minute.<br><br>
Yesterday was also the first day of weaning off Zyrtec. Half pills now.

My Mom uses it and it's fine for her. I'm up to 137, from 123 earlier in the year. I only took half of a Zyrtec yesterday and my appetite wasn't ravenous the whole day. I'll find out tomorrow or Wed if the dose is too low because I'll start itching if it is. I'm starting to get a little congested, but it's manageable. I've suffered from allergies since February/March, this sucks.

Forty nine pushups.<br><br>
Week 2 of C25K. Five minute warm up walk, then ninety seconds of jogging alternating with two minutes of walking, for twenty minutes. Wasn't sure how I would do, but I managed.

A lot of people tell me "But by law, you have to take breaks." I have to explain that in the food industry, it would be extremely hard to give all of the servers 3 breaks, 1 is hard enough during the rush. It's also not fun to keep changing up servers on customers. I worked 8 hours tonight, I'm exhausted.<br><br>
Retaining water? Period coming up? I bet it's water retention, that's almost impossible to gain that much weight in a short period of time.

Day 2 going to 1/2 pills for Zyrtec: Hunger down TREMENDOUSLY. I didn't even eat half of my meal at work (Gardein chik'n and mushroom lettuce wraps). I had breakfast and that in between meal, that's all. It's 12:35am and yesterday I only had 2 meals, but I'm not hungry. I'm snacking on sunflower seeds now. It's weird because even when my stomach growls, food doesn't sound good. I also get full REALLY fast. Medication is so weird sometimes. Hopefully I can join the challenge officially, once the medication is out of my life for this year. I'll definitely take it again next year, it saved me from hundreds of sinus headaches.
