I finished Couch to 5k. March 4th Food and Exercise Journal

by Alison on March 4, 2010

I finished the couch to 5k program! 9 weeks of working to running 3 miles.  I started walking 2 minutes running 1 minute and worked up to running 3 miles in 38 minutes.  In that time I also participated in two 5k events.  I’m proud of myself, I feel like I really accomplished something.  I stuck with it through a cold, through an injury and through the blahs, I finished.  Go me!

For breakfast I had oatmeal and yogurt with chia seeds, then did my run.   I knew I would be out and about most of the day so I grabbed a snacky lunch of kale chips, a banana and string cheese.  When I got home I had some pumpkin seeds and cantaloupe to hold me over til dinner.  Ben and I walked the dogs then came home and had left over chicken biryani and asparagus.  For a late night snack I had a vitamuffin and milk.

Tomorrow my sister and brother in law and their 2 kids, as well as my father and step-mother arrive for 5 days, I’m so excited!  We have lots of fun things planned including inner tubing in the snow, should be fun with these little ones from Hawaii, they have never seen snow 🙂
