You're reading this on Sunday, but I'm writing Saturday night.
And I need you to know something.
My legs HURT!
I've been doing that whole "working out" thing that people are always talking about.
And it sucks.
But it works.

I'm here today to document my workouts from this past week.
Because I think this is the first time in my life that I've been consistently active for two weeks.
And now that I'm putting it into writing, hopefully it'll keep me more accountable.
Because if I'm not going to stick with this, then why the heck have I been torturing myself for two weeks?

Monday: 45 minute brisk walk on treadmill.
Tuesday: Started the Couch to 5K workout. Week 1 Day 1
Wednesday: Couch to 5K. Week 1 Day 2
Thursday: 2 miles on Elliptical
Friday: 1 mile on Elliptical (because my legs were sore from the day before!)
Saturday: Couch to 5K. Week 1 Day 3 (and that completes the first week of the workout! Only 7 more to go!)

This week I've conquered a major fear.
I've shared before that I've been diagnosed with Anxiety.
I rarely have panic attacks anymore.
But my anxiety flares up big time if I feel like I can't breathe.
And obviously when I work out, I get out of breath.
This panic has been a major factor in why I've never consistently worked out.
But this week I've pushed myself.
And I'm learning that even if I'm out of breath, I'll catch it eventually.
Nothing bad has happened while working out this week...besides the incredibly sore legs.
And the past two days, my workouts have been panic free.
If you're keeping score, that's Lisa: 1, Anxiety: 0.

I'm proud of myself for keeping with this for more than 5 minutes.
And I really hope that I'll keep having the desire to workout and get in shape.
And now that I've put it out here on the internet, I think I kind of have to keep it up.

xoxo, wife.
