Hold Me Accountable

So, I've been (not-so-diligently) doing C25K (that's Couch-2-5K). 

I downloaded the C25K app for my Android phone (the freebie, so I also downloaded Handy Runner to give me an idea of distance [apparently it doesn't work... it was clocking me at 4miles+ in 35min which equals ~6.5km... I drove it out with my car and it's closer to 4km]).

I definitely have noticed progress, my legs are leaner and it's really helped me drop some more weight.  I definitely need a virtual (and real) kick in the ass to keep me more committed.

So here I am.  I'm putting it out there.  That I am doing C25K and I'd love for my readers to virtually (or in real life) kick me in the ass.  I've done weeks 1 through 3 on and off.  Keep me going.  Please!

I promise to write a weekly update with my runs, times and visible distance (I have to guestimate since Handy Runner is obviously wack and sucks ass... ).

So, motivate me.  Okay?

** Oh and in the spirit of being completely honest - the 3.5 glasses of wine, handful of ribs, potato wedges, and ice cream with cookies on top... possibly not conducive to my whole "I wanna be more healthy" thing **


  1. **yeah, but that sounds like a yummy delicious dinner!

    Rob uses "endomondo" to track his cycling and running. It is compatible with every phone and tracks online (and uploads to facebook if you want it to). It is also nice because I know where he is and how much time I have to make dinner.

    Check it out -

  2. Thanks Lindsay!
    Now I just have to figure out how to get it on my phone. Can't find it in the Android Market and the link that they (Endomondo) texted me doesn't work either... Hmmmm...

    Oh and supper did consist of some deliciously grilled veggies and a tossed salad. It wasn't *all* junk... just mostly ;)
