Just found out about this board. I figure we are all kind of in similar situations. I'm breastfeeding so I have to eat 2400 calories a day, but I'm not trying to lose weight, I'm trying to pass my pt test! I have 2 babies, a 16 month old and and 11 week old. I'm in the Army. I hated exercise but I found out why, I think it was an authority problem, being made to get up at 4am and do it for an hour and a half with a bunch of people. NOT my thing! Well after being stretched out by 2 kids running doesn't hurt much anymore, as in that cramp you get in your side.

I started using the app called get running on your phone, and I am on week 4 run 2. I hadn't missed a single run, or fell out a single time except for this weekend. I fell really sick on friday and missed my weekend runs But I get back at it today! Hoping this board can help motivate me.

Hi! I'm new here too.

I'm working on my running too. Not in the Army but my husband is and I have a bet going with him that by the time he gets back I'm gonna outrun him. I have a looooong way to go, I just started 30/60s and my 2 mile is like 27 minutes right now, but considering I used to walk 2 miles in like 40+ minutes I don't think that's awful progress so far.

Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.

Hey! Welcome to the board! I'm not working on weightloss either. I think everyone has their own goals. We have a few runners on the board (I'm not one of them). I mostly do strength training but I try to do some type of cardio a few times a week. I love watching everyone make progress towards their goals, whatever they might be. It's a really great board to help keep you motivated. I know that I am still not at the point where I love exercise. I find myself dreading my workouts most of the time. I just like the results.

Visit us at the Am I Pregnant board.

Welcome to the board!

I'm Kelsey, mommy to Kendra (6 1/2) and Josh (almost 3). I would say I am a "runner wanna-be" right now...haven't really ran since high school. I'm planning on trying out the couch to 5K program after school gets out for the year. DH is a farmer/rancher and it is one of his super busy times of the year right now, so it will be easier to get the workouts in if my DD is home to watch my DS. I'm currently working on losing those last 10-15 stubborn pounds.

Hi! New here also. I'm hoping this board will keep me motivated and help me get my much need pounds lost. I have a 19 month old daughter and just stopped bfing in January. Since then I feel like I may have lost an inch or so but I still have a long way to go! Yeah for running and sticking to it!

Nice to meet you all I'm soooo surprised I'm sticking to this couch to 5k thing. It's better than the PT program I'd be forced onto if I fail my PT test though. I just hope it's effective. I have to be able to run 2 miles in 19 minutes and 40 seconds, and do 17 push ups in 2 minutes and 50 sit ups in 2 minutes. So it's pretty easy but I hope I can do it. The bad thing about C25K is that it doesn't track distance, but hubby bought a fancy heart moniter I'm going to start using. I plan on doing the 5k my work is putting up June 15th. I was joking around saying that if I can't do the 5k I want my $2.99 back for false advertising!

Hi! Welcome to the board! I'm Jaime, momma to Jacob(9), Clara(8), Isaiah(5) and Caleb(2). I am a runner I got back into it after my youngest was born, couldn't run a mile without stopping but I trained and I ran my first marathon when Caleb was 12 months old.
