C25K Week 6 Complete!

image via google 

As I got to the 20th minute of running I asked myself "am i really doing this?" Unfortunately, it was at this same time that I began to feel some pain in my right knee. I still pushed through and decided to give my knee a break before I commence Week 7. 

These past few weeks have been irregular for me. I just keep travelling between 200lbs and 204lbs. Perhaps it's because even though I exercise regularly my eating has been all over the place. Rice has been the culprit so far. I measure a cup and then it becomes two. :-( My vegetable and fruit consumption has decreased at an alarming rate. I need a slap on the wrist. It is based on these that I have decided to undergo a three day detox where I would be forced to consume mostly fruits and vegetables. 

Have any of you done detox programs? What was your plan like? Did it help improve your eating patterns? 


  1. Hi dear... I am so interested about C25K. What was it about?

    1. It is a running program for beginners who have never run before and would like to do so. The program consists of a series of podcasts that guide you from running for a minute to actually running for 30minutes straight.

      Try visiting www.nhs.uk for more information.

  2. Yea for you and that 20 minute run! I remember when I did this training I looked at the app on my phone and thought it must be a typo!!!! :)

    I have now run in 3 5k races and lost 33 pounds!! :)

    Keep on keeping on!


  3. Amazing progress you're making!!

  4. Way to go on completing week 6. It is not easy but you are doing it!

  5. I know that when I was losing this weight the first time that I bounced right above that 200 pound mark for a few weeks. It was driving me nuts. I sooo badly wanted to break that 200 mark and be in the 100's. I could taste it (bad term for a foodie...but you know what I mean...lol). I think it's mental block. Dropping into onederland is HUGE and our minds play tricks on us! :-) Keep working it....it WILL happen!

  6. You are doing so well! I can't wait to follow in your footsteps. You inspire me! First with the elliptical and then this!

  7. I so can relate to your wanting to lose weight. I was glad to be able to have lost 20 lbs in the last 3 mos, but I've been slacking off the past couple weeks. Trying to get back on track.
