Today I completed Week 1 Day 1 of the Couch 2 5K program!! I had started running just a few weeks ago and was doing pretty good. I started out really strong but I didn’t want to overdo it so I decided to follow the program since it’s designed for those just beginning to run.
I completed 1.89 miles in 28 minutes today….not too bad!! I used the C25K Android app to help with timing and it was awesome! I downloaded the Pro version because of some of the added features. The app notified me with a bell sound every time I had to switch from running to walking. I used the Pandora app for running music and had a great selection of upbeat songs for the entire 28 minutes. I’m looking forward to my next run already!
After yesterday’s discussion of intuitive eating, I tried really hard today to recognize the times when I was truly hungry and the times when I was reaching for food to deal with an emotion. Today wasn’t a stressful day so I was pretty in tune with my hunger cues and avoided the emotional eating. Taking it one day at a time!
- Breakfast – oatmeal, strawberries, coffee
- AM Snack – Chobani with granola – thought I took a picture…guess not : )
- Lunch – spinach salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese, almonds, dried cranberries and balsamic vinaigrette
- Dinner – Leftover turkey breast tenderloin, brown rice and carrots (no picture…too hungry)
