100 Days Challenge and Days 1 and 2

I’m participating in the 100 Days Challenge.  What is it?  It’s the commitment to move at least 30 minutes a day, every day, for 100 days.  That shouldn’t be too difficult, right?  To help keep myself accountable, I’m going to chronicle my journey here.  The daily posts will probably be pretty short, and hopefully you all won’t get too bored.  But if you don’t see a post each day about what I did, call me out on it.

Day 1 – I started yesterday with a nice walk with the puppies.  We did 40 minutes around the neighborhood.  I actually slightly altered the route and plan somewhat because it was very warm.  The temperatures weren’t too bad, but it was dang humid.

Day 2 – Today is a whole different kettle of fish temperature wise.  Where I was in shorts yesterday to do stuff, today it was jeans.  The weather people are saying our overnight lows are supposed to get into the mid-30’s with some areas seeing low 30’s.  I don’t like being cold.  In fact by the time I decided I really needed to get my butt outside it was already 59 degrees.  I had a hard time convincing myself to get up and get outside today; I would have much preferred sitting curled up under my nice warm blanket.  But I put on my workout pants (pants instead of shorts!) and a t-shirt.  Leashed the pups and headed outside.  I’m easing back into Couch to 5K (C25K).  I find that I really want to be a jogger/runner.  And the only reason I can think of why is because it’s not something I can currently do.  It’s a challenge.  So it’s becoming part of my 100 Days Challenge.  I did Week 1 Day 1 with the puppies today.  Duncan seems to like running, Ciera is tolerating it right now.  That may change and she may get left home if I manage to actually make it further into the program.  Today’s total movement was 40 minutes of C25K and about 15 minutes of stretching after.  Now I can spend the rest of my night curled up under warm blankets.
