So proud of you, Jill!! I keep saying I'm going to start it back up again and then I make up excuses not too. So hopefully I can really find the time to do it this week and stick to it.

awww, thanks girls! I never would have found the program, started it, or continued it without all of your support!

 

I was watching the biggest loser last night and they had to run a marathon, all I could think about was that I only did 30 minutes straight, and these contestants were jogging for 4-6 hours straight! I had a hard enough time just getting through 30 minutes, lol!

 

For anyone just starting, it's defiinitely do-able if you stick with it. Now I just need to work on improving my speed a little bit.

Ok, I started up the program last night. W1D1 and it was still freaking hard. I wish I had a treadmill instead of an elliptical b/c it's hard to "run" on an elliptical. But I need to stick with it this time. I think I'll put a tv in the extra bedroom, so I can keep myself occupied for the 30 minutes. I'm also setting a goal for when I move outside - week 4. I think by then, I should be able to do it and not embarrass myself too much.

 

I also re-started the crunch, push-up and squat challenges last night too.

Yay I'm glad I found this thread :) I'm starting Week 4 day 1 on Monday, and yikes I'm afraid of the 5mins of running, I found 3mins was tough! lol

 

Congrats Jill for finishing!

I need to try this again. I've never been able to run, even in high school. I started this program and got up to the day I was supposed to do 20 min straight and couldn't cut it.

It's really not bad if you follow the program. Sometimes the first day of a week would be tough because it was new, but by the second day of that week I was usually fine.

 

I finished this program a couple of weeks ago and have since missed going to the gym for the past two weeks!!

 

I'm going tonight and am going to try to do the week 9 workout, I don't know if I'll be able to finish with two weeks off, but I'm going to try!

I just officially started back into this last night. I started from the beginning... and it was tough. I feel akward pushing a stroller while running, and it's much harder. But, I have no choice and hopefully it will make me stronger.

I do really love the C25K program for my iTouch though. It's much nicer than having a piece of paper or watching a stop watch.

 

So... here's to progress I suppose!

    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
