Workin' on my fitness!

So I am on this fitness kick, including eating super healthy, and can I just say been fun. Though I've only done it for 2 days though, but hey 2 days is better than none.

I have always wanted to be a runner but I never got into it; however, I found this thing online where you work your way up to running for a half hour. This is how it works

Week 1: Walk for 6 minutes, run for 1 minute, repeated 4 times. Then do this 3 times a week
Week 2: Walk for 5 minutes, run for 2 minutes, repeated 4 times. 3 times a week
Week 3: Walk for 4 minutes, run for 3 minutes, repeated 4 times. 3 times a week
Week 4: Walk for 3 minutes, run for 4 minutes, repeated 4 times. 3 times a week
Week 5: Walk for 2 minutes, run for 5 minutes, repeated 4 times. 3 times a week
Week 6: Walk for 1 minute, run for 6 minutes, repeated 4 times. 3 times a week
Week 7: Run for 28 minutes straight, 3 times a week.

I like how this plan eases your way into it. I must say it was a lot easier today than it was yesterday, and I've added that I do all that, plus I walk for an extra 20 minutes at the end. Its been quite fun, and I'm excited to see the results. I have a hard time doing baby steps, I want results right away, but I'm focused on trying this. Though I must admit my bum/legs hurt SO bad today ha ha. I even got one of those arm band things so I can put my ipod in it, and I made a running playlist with these songs on it:

-You Can't Stop the Beat: Hairspray
-Unwritten: Natasha Bedingfield
-That's How You know: Enchanted
-Suddenly I see: KT Tunstall
-So Much Better: Legally Blonde the Musical

-Nothing Better to Do: LeAnn Rimes

-High School Never Ends: Bowling for Soup
-Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go) Dierks Bentley
-Fergalicious: Fergie
-Favorite State of Mind: Josh Gracin
-Ever Ever After: Enchanted
-Don't Stop the Music: American Idol
-The Beauty in Ugly: Jason Mraz
-Since U Been Gone: Kelly Clarkson
-Country Girl: Rissi Palmer
-Not Like That: Ashley Tisdale

Happy Birthday as well to my parents today. They have the same birthday, although my mom was born in 1953 and my dad in 1950. It was a pretty low key type of day, and I have a second job interview on Friday for the job at North High School. I'm stoked, and I really hope I get it. Its weird to think I'm applying for "grown-up" jobs with benefits and such. Oh the joys of having graduated college.

You inspire me! I've been slacking on my running the past couple weeks, and I'm running another race in a month. Steve got me an armband for my ipod too for my birthday, so I think I'll follow your lead and start running more consistently. You're awesome!
