I am overweight and unfit! I started running recently – so I will totally join in!

I want to be able to run 4 miles consecutively by January … I’m up to 2 miles. I don’t care how long it takes me right now, I just want to be able to do it!!

AND I want to lose 6 pounds by January. Anymore is unrealistic – can we say Christmas cookies?

That’s awesome. I started the Couch 2 5k this morning!! SO – I ran for a 1/2 hour with intervals. That’s about all I cando oday.

Applecake sounds so delicious – I have a TOTE (like, seriously large tote) full of candy in my office right now … and it’s calling my name. I’m thinking my diet may just suffer a little today! I had oatmeal for breakfast, though!

Yesterday- there was no working out – I just went home. Aunt Flo came for a visit and I was not into the gym!

Also – my wedding is May 14, 2011. Forever far off but I want to be in shape waayyyy before then!

I used to run, too, but I have no cartilage in my knees so I stopped. It really is the best workout. I’m hoping taking it slow will really help me get back on the running track …

Also – have you checked out Sparkpeople? It’s an awesome sight for recording calories you’ve taken in, burned, etc. I just signed up yesterday and I’m loving it!

Are we twin brides? My wedding is on JAN 2, 2010, 29 days left. I’ve been going to the gym for the last 6 months and reached my target weight. By doing so, I was able to enjoy food here and there especially the last holiday but will be in serious business starting today till my wedding day which means I’ll be heading to the gym 3-4x a week.

Enjoy working out ladies!!!!

@swissbride – I do indeed have time on my side. I’d like to just tone up closer to the wedding, though. Overall, I want to lose 54 pounds. not a light undertaking,t hat’s for sure.

Couch 2 5k is a running program I actually heard about via weddingbee. It uses intervals and such to prepare you to run a 5k … it starts off very easy. I just started this week. I’m sore, yes, but you only run as fast as you can take it … I find it’s easy to finish 2 miles right away … so only a mile left to go to reach that goal! I’d love to run a 5k sometime in the future!

Glad you like sparkpeople!! It makes me happy, too!

@cgenove – gooood luck! I’ll be crossing my fingers for you! I admire both you and swiss bride for having weddings so soon after the holidays! They’re my downfall!

Swiss bride, I would love to check-in daily too!! 🙂 I had another post going for workout check-ins, but it is getting quite long!

My wedding is 5 months away and I would like to lose about 10-15 lbs and tone up majorly! I have already lost 4 pounds and have been sticking to my workouts. My only problem is eating healthy (and smaller portions) which I am working on!!!
