Working on my fitness

A while back, at the beginning of August, I started the Couch to 5K running plan.  I had been tread-milling it up at the gym three times a week and was doing pretty well with it.  Unfortunately, Kylie ended up in the hospital for two weeks and, during that time, I abandoned the gym (and pretty much everything else in my life as well).  But now that she is safe and sound at home, I am making my triumphant return!  As of today, I am resuming the Couch to 5k Challenge!

Since I am out of practice from two weeks of sitting around, I am starting over at week one.  Each week I will post my progress in the form of weight, measurements, distances, calories burned, and average heart rates.  I'll try to make this a weekly Monday event.  So if you don't care about my fitness adventure, probably just skip those days.  Here are my current stats as of today:

Weight: 125.4
Waist: 28
Hips: 37
Thigh: 21.5
Calf: 12.5
Upper Arm: 10.5

Eventually I also plan to start some the Nerd Fitness Beginner Body Weight Workout, but I don't want to get ahead of myself.  I'll see how this goes first before I start adding extra days of obligations.  The ability to stick with things has never been one of my strong points, but I am hoping that being accountable on my blog will help.  This way everyone (or at least everyone who reads my blog) will know if I fail and I certainly don't want that to happen!
