I'm new and just signed up today. I use to run in High School, but stopped when my feet (bunions and flat feet) hurt too bad to continue. I'd like to start doing it again, but honestly I'm afraid. I'm more than 100lb overweight and my knees are very good, so I'm starting with some things that aren't 'running' related to make sure my body can handle what's coming up and make sure it has what it needs to succeed.

My goals are;
Drink 64oz of water / day
Strength Train 3-4x / week
Get proper nutrition -
1-2 protein / day
2 or more vegetables / day
2 or more fruit / day
1 fiber or more / day

Never mistake failure as final

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

I want to take it easy a little bit on the running this week to let my shin splints heal, but still try to stay on track, so, here's my plan:

1. Run Monday and Thursday.

2. Do at least 20 minutes of mild activity Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday (swimming, walking, hiking, etc).

3. Track food every day and stay within my limits.

It's that time of the month for me, so I just want to take it easy, take good care of myself, and push through the week without falling too far off track!

Back to some basics that I have been avoiding.

Core work - 2 sets of 10 each: Squats, crunches and back extensions. 5x a week.
Calorie count - 1700 - 2050 daily

M - core done! Cals = 2045
T - KABOOM!
W - core done! Cals = 2040
R - core done! Cals = 2057 (darn)
F - core done! family in from out of town; ate out twice.
S - core done! family in from out of town; too many cooks to try to figure out what was in food.

Please use this thread to let everyone know your goals for the week, to keep yourself accountable. The goals can certainly be running related, but you can use the thread for other goals you are currently doing as well.

Simply write down what you have for a goal for the week (for example: complete week three of C25k), and then as the week progresses, come back and edit your initial post with the results as you complete steps toward your goal.

If you want to add the mileage to our team's monthly mileage challenge, you can get there by following this link:

www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_message
board_thread.asp?board=579x2189x7435059

Plus, our team is on our way to running to the moon! Please help us get there, by adding that team goal to your own goals list. You can find it from the main team page (near the bottom).
