Ok so looked into blogging today and wow it's a lot more complicated than I realized. Know someone who blogs so will message her for advice.

Until I decided journaling will have to do!!!! (Such a hardship, not)

So today I went for a walk around a little area in dadeland, it's nice and scenic and I had time to kill until hubby got done with PT. I walked for 25 minutes and 1.6 miles. I was winded but not short of breath and totally exhilarated.

Hubby met up with me and we went to the Panera Bread in the same area where I had my new favorite food the Lentil Quinoa Chiken Broth Bowl! Absolute nom nom!!!!!

Got home and did a twenty minute beginners yoga I found on YouTube, Yoga with Adriene. She has a 30 day challenge I think I'm going to try once I feel I have refreshed my basics. It was it was so good but downward facing dog was really hard on my wrists.

Afterward I found a meditation through J bitter sweet also on YouTube that I tried. It was Day 1 of 30 day challenge. She did some explanation and then a 5 minute mediation. I like it and I'm going to try day 2 tomorrow, will see how it goes.

I've been reading some of the suggestions posted about how to start/keep a yoga practice and how to start running. The my have some really great suggestions. Example, morning yoga 10 minutes. Layout mat by bed so it's the first thing you step on. Plant the idea of doing yoga in your mind. Going to try this!!!!

So excited!!!!

So I have never been a runner, you could say I'm allergic to it. I'm asthmatic and overweight, not the right mix for running. Today I got invited to do a different kind of triathlon, yoga/meditation/5K. Yoga is one of my goals for the year & while I can do it meditation is something I have been wanting to get better at so 2/3's of this triathlon is something I can really get into, but the running scares the crap out of me!!!!

So I hit maybe on the invite and started thinking, do I really want to try this? Turns out that it's a yes. Maybe I'm crazy and I'm not sure I can run a 5K even with 7 months but I really want to do this. Motivation to get healthier and work on my goals.

So starting today I'm training for a triathlon. Thinking I may try to blog/journal/write about this. (Another one of my goals)

Possible names:
A non-runners journey to a 5K
My path to yoga & a 5K

Either way my first entry:

4/6 - today I did 30 minutes of introduction yoga, walked for 20 minutes with some very very light and awkward jogging and did a 7 minute work out I have been trying to do daily for a few days now. Meditation up next.

Wish me luck!
