It’s the morning after and I actually feel pretty good.  Very little soreness which means I am not as out of shape as I thought, or I need to work a bit harder today.  My shins are a bit sore, which is a problem I’ve always had while running, but hopefully the soreness will go away in a couple of weeks.

I figured since I am chronicaling this fitness journey, I may as well keep track of what I’m eating as well.

Breakfast – Smoothie 225 calories
3/4 cup of Non Fat Plain Dannon Yogurt – 75 calories
1 medium banana – 105 calories
1 teaspoon honey – 30 calories
1 teaspoon wey protein – 15 calories
1/3 cup spring water
3 ice cubes

I usually have a cup of coffee in the morning, but I am going to try to skip the coffee, and attempt to drink more water.  My goal by 4 o’clock is to drink 4 bottles of 16.9 oz water.

Snack – String Cheese 80 calories
1 bottle of water down

Lunch – Pasta w/ Broccli 195 calories
This is actually leftovers from dinner last night.  I took a half box of Rotelle pasta, and added a steam pack of broccli with cheese to it.  A very quick and simple meal.  I know its a lot of carbs, but I love pasta and won’t be giving it up anytime soon!

Snack – Chobani Yogurt  – Apple Cinnamon 140 calories
2 bottles of water down by 3:35pm, don’t think I’ll make 4 bottles…there’s always tomorrow.









Dinner – Pasta w/ Broccli 390 calories
I love this so I made it again for dinner 2nite.  I ate 2 servings of this to increase my calorie count for the day.

Today’s Calorie count – 1030
Total water count – 64ozs

Today I headed back to the track to complete day 2 of my C25K.  Week 1 is basically the same thing Week 1 Day 1 of the C25K is a brisk five minute warm up walk.  Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes, and then a cool down.  So I have one more day to complete week 1.

Day 1 was on Monday.  On Tuesday I put my workout gear on, but as soon as I put my sneakers on I knew it was a no go.  The blister I was blessed with on Monday was bothering me.  So I took a needled, sanitized it, and popped the sucker.  I put some ointment on it and let it breath for the next 2 days.

My total mile count today was 2.11 miles, which is 0.61 miles more than Monday, so I’d say that was an improvement.  I did a Wog (combination walk/jog).  I will say my left shin felt like death after the 2nd lap.  So I did a bit more walking than jogging, but tried to push it when the pain subsided.

I’m using a nifty little app from the site  It tells you have fast you are running, your pace, calories burned, and I’m sure a slew of other things.  I’m also using a C25K app for blackberry.  It is very basic, and free for 2 weeks, so I’ll try this one out until I can find a better one.  It is great because it beeps everytime you need to walk or jog, and keeps time to keep you on pace.  I can’t wait until the iphone 5 comes out because they have so many more app options to monitor these things.

P.S. I never made it to REI, its on my 2 do list.

Thats all for now…on to Day 3.
