I finished the second week of Couch to 5k this morning.
I don’t feel any different yet. But, I know that these things take time. And, I haven’t been as proactive about my diet as I hoped I’d be. (Cooking for one is just so… ugh.) I started off eating well and then slid into my normal habits of finding something quick and easy. I am trying to make healthier choices though and make sure that I drink more water, eat more fruit/veggies and have healthier snacks available.
A few days ago, one of my friends told me about the Netflix app. I didn’t realize I could watch my queued streaming videos on my iPhone. Woo hoo! This has made my treadmill sessions a bit less boring. After all, 30 minutes of just staring at the wall isn’t very stimulating.
I’ve had the support of a few friends that have met up with me, whether in the early morning or the late evening. Sometimes we jog around my neighborhood. Other times, it’s in the country with the smell of cows hanging in the air. It’s so much more motivating to work out with another person.
Several more volunteers lined up for the upcoming week. So, bring on week 3!
Here’s what I’m (still) using:
- iPhone 3GS
- Couch to 5k app by Felt Tip inc.
- Facebook (to coordinate with friends)
- Netflix iPhone app
