Couch to 5K, Week 1 Day 1--Take Two

Today's weight: 242
Gain of 3 lbs since last weigh in

I suffered from kidney stones when I was pregnant with Bailey. I think I passed 13 in all. I hadn't had one in a year but earlier this week they were back in full force with me having two wreaking havoc on my insides. I'm suspecting I let myself get dehydrated. I won't make that mistake again. Four days later, I've made a full recovery and back to the routine.

My weight is up three pounds, but I'm not stressing it. I laid in bed for days and ate junk and put needed water back in my system. I'll have those pounds back off plus some in no time.

I started my Couch to 5K program again. I made it through the full workout. It wasn't as ugly as the first day I tried to run, but I could see I had already lost a little strength in the four days I didn't workout. All the more reason to make sure I stick to my program.

I think I'm going to have to return the new shoes though for another pair. The arches started to rub a bit. The good news is I had no shin splints. The shoe store said I could return the shoes as long as I didn't run outside and have any signs of wear. I told them no problem there. What they don't know is I'm afraid for my neighbors to see me stampeding through the neighborhood just yet. I'm afraid if they see me running they'll call 911 for fear I'm surely running from a fire and not just for exercise.


  1. So glad the kidney stones are gone! You're really motivating me to get back into an exercise regime. I even ordered a new sports bra that can handle 'big ones'. Maybe it will inspire me, too, once it gets here. That's a nice program on the shoes to be able to return them. Keep us posted!

  2. Glad you are okay and getting back on the bandwagon. I did week 2 day 2 last night, it was great. I hope you continue to feel well.

  3. Wee ha! Love the positive attitude!
