Couch to 5K Running Plan

I started the "Couch to 5K Running Plan" today. It actually wasn't that bad..except for the biting wind in my face! For a while I have been wanting to shed some of those unwanted pounds, and become more healthy. I've pretty much tried everything under the sun in order to do this...except run. I would go to the gym and work out...and run on the treadmill or do the eliptical machine..but I would never lose more than maybe 5 or so lbs. And it wasn't like I was cheating with my food or working out once a week. I was GOOD!

Because of this, I am going to do the thing that I have not done. Run. I'm not working about going to the gym and lifting weights, etc. I'm going to run, run, run. I honestly think that's how I'm going to lose the weight. After I do that, then I can worry about lifting weights to tone up..but that's my last goal. I just thought back to high school (when I was the skinniest of course) and thought about what I did. This was the time that I was cheering, but I was also in track...hence the running..hence the me being skinny..

So, I guess you could say I'm going back to high school. Wow, I never thought I'd say that one again...so, go me! Hope this works!

Do CrossFit workouts! You'll drop that weight in no time! (And yes, their workouts usually include lots of running and/or other forms of cardio)


P.S. Aaron's been doing CrossFit for about 4 months now and he's down to about 9% body fat!!! Insane!!
