I did the HBBC a few years ago and it motivated me to run on days that I would have much rather just sat on the couch. And since I've been doing a lot of couch-sitting again recently, I'm super excited this is here to get me back off the couch!

I'd probably put the gifts I'm giving them (i.e. the jewelry I'd love them to wear during the wedding), plus a thank you note with a message from me. Haven't thought too much about what else I'd like to give them, but I'll figure it out eventually!

Good for you for starting! Saw one of your comment/discussions above about tracking numbers: I'm just as obsessed with tracking fitness stuff (weight, workouts, etc.) as I am with money.

Also saw that you ended up starving yourself with Weight Watchers by trying to stay under the points and stuff. I used LoseIt for awhile when starting out, and it helped me see where the extra calories were popping up. Stopped eating seconds, toned down on the unhealthy snacks. But I do think I also maybe undershot on calories some days, so I don't know if LoseIt will be just as dangerous as Weight Watchers for you. Just a thought. Watching what you eat + exercising will work together to get you where you need to be.

Also, drink water. I know everyone says that all the time. But thirst sometimes manifests as hunger, plus there's a million good reasons to keep hydrated. So, do that.

As for the getting exhausted business, I know all about that. In fact, the vomiting issue has been a problem for me in the past: after the past few 5k races I ran, I puked. Then and also during some exercises, if I push myself too hard, or my heart rate gets too high, I get sick to my stomach and think I might vomit. So, the feelings happen, it's a sign from your body that you're pushing too hard.

As for accountability, you should join in on the #pfworkout hashtag! We'll support you and cheer you on there.

Okay, I've said way too much for one comment. I'm really proud of you for starting this! I think videos can be pretty great, and you can get more through youtube and on-demand cable.

Seriously, I've kind of gotten obsessed with this fitness and healthy eating thing, so I'm here for more ideas :) And of course support!

I haven't been to the gym or gone for a run in weeks. I stopped working out when I realized it might have been making my chronic cold stick around (it's still lingering...almost 2 months with cold symptoms :( ) But I do want to get back into running. I never was that fast of a runner, but I feel discouraged the longer I'm away from it. Thanks for the advice!

Whoops, just realized that this is no the Mad River that I know! I thought it was the Vermont one! So...I dont think I'll enter. Thanks for the giveaway, though!

They were giving away mini larabars after a 5k I did a few months ago. Loved them! My favorite is probably the chocolate chip cookie dough one :D
