Couch to 5K Challenge

I have recently been inspired to take this challenge! For those of you who've never heard of it, its a 10 week program that takes you from being a non-runner to running a 5K non-stop! Those 10 weeks put me at right around the time Matt will be home for R&R so I'll be able to take runs with him! Today was day 1 and I was pleasantly surprised that I wasn't nearly as out of shape as I thought I was. I guess chasing after a very busy 14-month old and carrying him around has helped out my fit factor!

I also started using Mederma's Stretch Mark cream. Thanks to my little boy, I have a few stretch marks on my stomach that have faded quite a bit since I had him but not nearly to where I'd like them to be. So I caved in and paid $35 for a lotion. Yes, $35. Another blogger bravely put her before and after pictures up and that really pushed me to buy the lotion. She looks INCREDIBLE.

I am so excited for Matt's Father's Day gift which I will share with everyone once he has seen it!


  1. I hope you took a picture! Even if you don't share it (which I don't blame you...that chick has huge balls), it will be nice for you to see the results. I decided not to buy it yet considering we are planning on having another baby in the next year. How big of a waste of money would that be to fade them, and have a new batch of those bad boys pop up!?

  2. Who is this blogger? I'm going to need something.. hell, I had horrible stretch marks before I got pregnant.:)
