Couch to 5k...and the rest of the week

First goals for this week...
  • go to the gym 5 out of 7 days
  • finish week one of couch to 5k
  • send out 2 resumes/applications
  • finish all of my back homework for accounting
So as I told a few people today, this blog is so that I can organize my thoughts and goals, and so that I can be accountable to the people who may be reading. I've made it this far, as of right now I am down 35 pounds, have 7 resumes out, and am 4 classes and 2 exams away from my degree, but I know that at some point that it will stop being easy. I know that ultimately the only person that I have to answer to about all of this is myself, but who doesn't need a little help from friends and family, right? There is a lot left to do and a long way to go, so thank you all for being a part of this with me.

Something new that I have been doing is the "Couch to 5k" program. In theory it makes non runners (me) into runners in nine weeks with 3 workouts a week that increase in difficulty as you go. We'll see. I am two workouts down, and its not easy. I mean I haven't really seen my couch very much in the past four months but the truth is...I was not built to run, I'm going to keep pushing though and see where it leads.

P.S. Thanks for the love notes, they made me smile.

First Post

This is going to be a blog about my first steps...already taken...and all the steps to come to make the important move to a life that I've always wanted but have been too lazy/scared/whatever to pursue. For the past few years, in every aspect except my marriage, I have been pretty stagnant. Easy, mostly fun, dead end, job, weight that kept creeping up, a 99.5% finished college education, and a house hunt that never got past the Realty USA website(shameless plug for my dad). Its time to start, time to jump, time to really become an adult.
