More Exercise Means Less Food? And Disney News!

9 Apr

So today was a big day.  I registered for the Disney 10k Marathon.  There was a cost associated, so you know I’m not backing out!  I’m somewhat nervous – I’ve never done a marathon before.  Who am I kidding – I’ve not run since high school.  That was almost 20 years ago.  But I know I can do this.  I have a feeling it’s going to be a pretty emotional run.  Not just the marathon and completing it – but because I’ll be 90 pounds lighter by the time I do it.  That’s a pretty big deal.

Have you run a marathon before?  Have any tips for a newbie?  I’d love to hear them!

39 weeks to lose 90 pounds.  That means I need to lose a little over 2 pounds per week.  It’s a must to reach my goal.  I can do it!

Today marked day two of hitting the pavement for a brisk walk.  I’m feeling good – I can feel it in my legs.  What’s even more interesting is my interest in food has dropped significantly.  Is that normal?  You work out more – you want to eat less?  I’ve barely eaten anything today – maybe 8 points?  And I’m feeling satisfied.  It’s a great feeling.

    I have used the couch to 5k app (c25k from zen labs) on my phone and have several friends that have used this to train for marathon. maybe use this to help continue the walking and when you feel ready to start incorporating running, start the program again and run with it! Rock on!!!
