Come visit me at Girly Bitz. It's my other interweb hangout.

I ran.

Hi everyone.

Guess what I did today?
I ran!


I won't bore you with the humorous details of my run (you can click here to go to Girly Bitz and read all about it).

That's right. MB and I are doing the Couch to 5K plan. Today was Day One. It was okay. I survived.

I would love to solicit advice from all the runners out there. This is really the first time I am running (MB too) and I could use all the help I can get.

My biggest discomfort today was with breathing. I found it really hard to maintain even breaths. I was able to do it while walking, but once I started running it fell apart.

I would start hyperventilating and then felt like I had to stop. I didn't want to stop, because my body was feeling okay. It was just trying to catch my breath.

I know it's my first day and alot of this will come with practice. I'd still love to get some advice if you have any.

We'll be back out there on Wednesday and Friday. On the off days, I plan on doing slim in 6 and yoga.

I have to tell you that MB is a wonderful motivator. He really pushed me today and kept me moving and I appreciate that. He's a great coach. A great partner. And he looks pretty good in his running shorts!

I'll be back tomorrow with my official weigh in and the beginning of daily food journaling again.

Can't wait to get back on track and get my fat ass into those skinny jeans again!

The BLitz is back on!


  1. I've fallen into the depths of cookie land.... I need to pull myself out an hit the pavement.

    Glad you ran - the breathing gets easier, I promise. But trust me, the only thing you can do is keep running - the more you run, the easier it gets (You'll be surprised by how quickly you improve).

  2. Good for you! I find that practice makes perfect, and as you're running, your breathing will find its rhythm, if that makes sense.
