This was my latest status post on facebook, "Jill Williams just completed Week 1 - Day 2 of C25k once again.....". Why did I end it with 'once again'? Well, if you've known me for awhile now, you know that back in April 2009, I started an exercise program called C25k. You might have actually even read about the post I did about it here titled "I'm Gonna Do It!". Well, I did it, for awhile that is. Actually, I was doing really well and being very faithful about doing it. And I could tell a difference! I started losing weight and I had more energy. I was feeling good about myself. Then, the craziest thing happened. It was in May 2009 and I was on Week 4 of C25k and I fractured my ankle. I didn't even realize that I had done it. My ankle just started hurting when I was on the cool down of the workout one day. You can read about that here. Needless to say, I had to stop C25k for the time being. Ever since then, I will start it and get 2 or 3 or even 4 weeks into it and then stop for various and sundry reasons and excuses! I've gained back the weight that I had once lost and have just gotten out of shape once again.
But I need your help. Dave is very supportive and always encouraging me to get out and exercise but I need to hear it from more than just him. I'm asking you to help me. Whether you know me or not, I would like for you to encourage me and hold me accountable by asking me on a regular basis, "Have you done your C25k today?" or "Did you walk/run today?" or something like that. You can comment on my blog, email me, ask me on facebook, text me or ask me at the bus stop of a morning. Anything. I don't care. Just ask me. Hold me accountable so that I will continue what I've started. I'm counting on you.
