Well..I made it through 10 minutes...really sad huh?:( I was going to try to the do the first mile but after about 10 minutes my hips were burning and I was breathing so heavy...it is so ridiculous that I have let myself go this much!! I get so frustrated with myself but I know it will take time to build myself up...I will keep going and work my way up to the 4 miles! Oh well...I will try again tomorrow! :) I AM NOT giving up!


  1. Just take it one day at a time and do the best that you can each day. You will be amazed at how quickly you build up your stamina! :)

  2. You have to start somewhere right. Congrats on the 10 mins, keep it up and you'll be doing 30 min no time!!

    I have heard such great things about those DVD's, tons of people I know love em.

    Congrats on the loss this week BTW! :)

  3. Take it easy, push a little, endurance will build. Don't get frustrated, turn it around and be happy that you are activiely participating! (Yeah, I know, but still a positive attitude helps.)

  4. Hey Christa, have you heard about what Ace is doing? Burst training? I like the concept and it will help you build up strength...

  5. We all have to start somewhere! I am so proud of what you've accomplished so far!

  6. No it is NOT sad Christa...it's FABULOUS!!!! We all have to start somewhere...I started at walking 15 mins...and not walking fast, lol...and when I fell off that treadmill I truly thought I would die. Out of breath, sore, heart pounding out of my chest, hips joints screaming at me.....however...I am pleased to say that if you keep going...doing as much as you can...slowly increasing...it DOES get easier...and although you might not believe this...it actually gets ENJOYABLE...I'm up to walking 3.5 miles now at a pretty good pace. I'm proud of that....you'll progress just like everyone else...just don't give up!!

    Also, my whole attitude towards the pain of exercise changed when I read this quote on Amy H's blog at "No To The Deuce".

    "Pain is just weakness leaving the body."
