HI!! I’m Erin, a 22-year-old college graduate, who is currently in the middle of accomplishing absolutely nothing in her life.
I’m starting this blog to track my progress with my latest venture- Couch to 5K- or C25K: a program that helps
super lazy, unmotivated, non-athletes like myself become runners.
For those of you who
live in a cave have yet to hear about this iPhone app, it seems pretty legit. The program has 3 workouts/week for 9 weeks. By the time week 9 rolls around, the user is supposed to be able to “run 30 minutes without a walking break.”
For example, Day 1 consists of : “Brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes. Five-minute cooldown walk.”
Sounds easy enough right? :-/
Who cares! I can do this! :)
For as long as I can remember, I’ve lost and maintained my weight using unhealthy means. I’ve struggled with eating disorders and I’ve NEVER gotten into working out.
In fact, I open and cancel gym memberships approximately every 6 months. Can you say commitment issues? So it’s time for me to make a change, and I truly feel that I am ready.
This blog is going to be dedicated to me being healthy…the healthy way.
