52 Mondays came to me in a fit of New years resolution fury. It seems I am always starting my "diet" or exercise plan on "Monday"! Well lots of "Mondays" have come and gone and my butt and thighs are still as thick as a Chick-filet shake (you know what I'm talking about!!) That is when I thought OK there are 52 Mondays in year...52 is a doable number of making small changing in my life that will hopefully change to number on the scale in a downward fashion. Come join us on the journey of 52 Mondays to getting our butt, thighs and almost everything else that shake and moves a little smaller. If want to be a contributor (and you know you do) just leave a comment and I will add you to the list of contributors! This is a blog were we can share our successes and failures on the hard journey of weight loss and just plain physical wellness.

Walking to Running plan

Week one workout finished. Not too bad either! I included the training plan above.
You can click on the work out plan to enlarge it. I thought this week would be harder beacause I hadn't worked out over 45 minutes on the treadmill and this had a 60 minute work out in the first week. But it was really great! I felt really good after the work outs. By the end of the wekk, i stated feeling i could go longer than a minuted, so I just increased the intensity. I can't wait to see what next week brings. I am a little nervous because I get to run 3 minutes in a row, and only walk 2 minutes.
Eating this week went well except for Tuesday. I accidently deleted over my family and business blogs. Long, story short, I was devistated over loosing my family blog beacuse I have been blogging for about 4 years, and had used it as sort of a journal. I was so so so sad, and being the emotional eater that I am I drug out a box of Valentines chocolates that were in my photography stuio that I have been using for a prop. Good new, I didn't eat the second one! However, I do need to figure out how to handle emotional stress like that. Emotional stress is the one thing that ruins my healthy eating habits.
Luckily the rest of the week was a lot better. Even today, Saturday was a great day. Saturday's are usually the hardest for me. But the whole family is on board, so it wasn't hard at all. We even went to the gym and had a great work out instead of sitting on the couch watching TV!


  1. Yay. Thanks for posting this, I may try it in the next week. Anything to get this junk in my trunk under control!!!

  2. When I am running on the treadmill at home, I like to alternate running/walking with the music I am listening to. It helps me not to focus so much on the time on the clock.
