Run 6 of #couchto5k
Well #couchto5k got a hell of a lot harder this week. The burn was real 🔥💦
I've set a challenge to the group for us all to take part in a local running event. in September, it's been a very long time since I've ran, and it's like starting from scratch. but... after boxfit tonight I'll be staying behind to make sure I stick to my plan and get my legs moving again. It's going to be hard, but it'll be fun in the process. 🤔 I used to love running, especially by the canal, even better when you have someone with you to keep you going and take your mind off of struggling to catch your breath. but as it's just me, I need to push myself. the biggest battle as always is the one in your head... I can do it... you can't do it.. aghhhhhhhh. I Can ! Time to get some miles in. I've got this 💪 #running #plan #canal #boxfit #couchto5k #startingagain #dustoffthetrainers #canalrun #greatlinford #miltonkeynes #views #outdoors #heartrateup #sweat #smile #ican
Run 1 Week 5, unbelievable I'm running 5 minute spells at a time, this app is amazing #bbcbeinspired #couchto5k #fitnessmotivation #feelinggood #swdetermination #longtermgoals
Out early this morning, first time running with the running buggy and first week of excercise for me! #couchto5k #sweating #amelielovedit #ameliebosher 😅
Embracing Thursday morning with another 25 minute continuous run on #week7run2 of #couchto5k . I’m very happy with my progress. I’ve been gentle with myself, allowing my desire to run to propel me out the door rather than forcing myself to stick to a regime. In running, I am learning to support myself with kindness and love. This is new ground, and I like it. #mentalhealthawareness #womensrunningcommunity #runforyourlife #bekindtoyourself #runner #running #trailrunning #freeyourmind #runinthepark
Tried to continue my #couchto5k last night as I've got my old phone back including the app with my progress on and I pulled a muscle in my calf so now I'm hobbling about! So with my son biting and breaking my phone and now this I think someone is trying to tell me I'm not cut out for running 😂😣🏃‍♀️ #weightlossjourney #onplan #slimmingworlddiary #slimmingworlduk #SWUK #swmums #swfamily #sw #fooddiary #swfooddiary #swsupport #swfriends #swinsta #swinspiration #swinstagram #swmafia #slimmingworldmafia #slimmingworldmums #slimmingworldfood #slimmingworldsupport #slimmingworldinstagram #slimmingworldfamily #slimmingworldfooddiary #slimmingworldfood #slimmingworld #swblog #swblogger #diet #weightloss #C25K
Going for my second run tonight and I’m actually almost looking forward to it 🙀 I’m hoping along with the help from #couchto5k app and taking my time I will eventually be able to run 5k without stopping..?! . . . #weightloss #personalblog #mindfuleating #fitness #workingout #nutrition #goals #walking #mindfullness #summer2018 #health #exercise #UK #balance #weightlossmotivation #journey #instagram #running
Not much to get excited about here. Look at those eye bags!!! Onto the 3rd day of the course and I am shattered! 🏃‍♀️ But I got out and got to run past some HUGE houses in Kensington. Can't wait to be home with my boys tonight ❤️ #slimmingworld #slimmingworldessex #bodymagic #couchto5k #couchto5kgraduate #mumswhorun #thisgirlcanessex #thisgirlcanessexambassadors #ukrunchat #myracemypace #bebetterthanyesterday #runmummyrun #thisgirlcan #ThisGirlCanrun #thismumruns
Week 5 completed 🏃🏻‍♀️ Proud of myself for getting this far. 5 weeks ago I would never of thought I would of been able to run for 20 minutes! That’s nothing for some people but for me it’s a big achievement for me 😊 Roll on week 6 🙌🏻 #couchto5k #c25k #fitbit #beginnerrunner #feelingdetermined
Beautiful views make running so much easier to get up for 😍🏃🏻‍♀️😎 #running #run #lakegarda #couchto5k #italy #holiday
So happy to be back in these shoes, even if just a little bit, from time to time 😊 #kneesurgeryrecovery #stemcells
Week 9 run 2 completed. Spurred on faster today by a parish walker on his training walk being very fast behind me!! #couchto5k #parishwalk #isleofman
🏃🏻‍♀️ This mornings run was more of an ouch to 5k, than couch to 5k 😂 I felt a twinge in my left knee half way through 😔 but carried (hobbled!) on anyway! #couchto5k #running #week1done #thewombats #determinationbadge
this is so exciting for me. i haven’t been making the best food choices lately because my friends are home and they always want to go out, but i actually stopped myself from a binge a few days ago. i’m watching someone’s house while they’re on a big road trip and they said i could eat whatever they wanted (for reference they have two huge freezers and a giant pantry of not so healthy food) and after i ate a piece of broccoli stuffed chicken, all i wanted was the doritos in the cupboard and the ice cream in the freezer. but i told myself “no, you don’t need that. just feed the dog and go home and make a smoothie bowl instead” and that’s what i did. i’m not saying it’s always that easy for me let alone anyone else, but it’s a huge step in my current lifestyle. my longest streak up until this point was 14 days, and i’ve almost doubled it without realizing. 😌
Dinner last night was chicken and veggie fried rice/quinoa/pearl barley mix with salad... Wasn't from a book just off the top of my head last. Minute after a hiit session... Was absolutely lovely too! #weightloss #weightlossjourney #slimmingworldmum #healthy #foodoptimising #slimmingworld #slimmingworlduk #slimmingmom #foodblogger #newstart #freshstart #determined #backontrack #weighin #couchto5k #learningtorun #healthybody #healthymind #healthylifestyle #thebodycoach #leanin15 #hiit #dinner
Not gonna lie - that was tough (but I really do love it when it’s a challenge!). Don’t worry you did your job right - I can’t lift my arms 😳 happy Thursday everyone #fitfam #fitnation #fitlike #homeworkouts #fitforlife #transformation #trexarms #mucleup #gains #motivational #couchto10k #corrieyarrick #thr #bilateralhips #couchto5k
Completed week 4 of #couchto5k and feel so happy with myself also did a set of weights this morning 💪 #fitnotfat #bodymagic #slimmingworld #slimmingworlduk #exercise #couchto5k
Today is as good as any day to start🤘🏼 I want to be able to hike where I want, walk the streets of a foreign city, and to release my stress through sweat. I downloaded the @activedotcom Couch to 5k app and added the zombie as my trainer. Nervously left the house 2 hours later 😹 Walk/Jogging through the park felt wonderful..... and tiring. I got my 1.5 miles in which means I’m halfway to a 30 minute 5k 😉 I am loving the #21dayworkoutchallenge @healthyisthenewskinny I am feel more accepting of my body and less critical of my choices 🤘🏼🤘🏼 I plan on doing this alongside my #tiuolympia ladies doing the #summertoneup 🦄👌🏼
This is starting to become all about fitness/C25K so I’m going to remember to start posting some meals again #couchto5k #c25k #fitness #fitnessmotivation #run #running #runningman #runningmotivation #instagramrun #instagramrunner #instagramrunners #instagramrunning #ukrunchat #slimmingworld #slimmingworlduk
Started the couch to five K tonight! 🏃‍♀️ Weight watchers is more than just “dieting” to lose weight, its a #lifestylechange which for me includes fitness 💪🏻. ... I’ve never been one to stick to something so when I took the plunge into #weightwatchers I wasn’t sure how I would do, but I have stuck it to so far and I aim to stick to this challenge as well! #weightlossjourney #weighwatchers #weightwatcherscanada #weightwatchersfreestyle #weightwatchersonline #weightlosstransformation #newmom #postpartumjourney #postpartumweightlossjourney #postpartumweightloss #fitmom #aspiringfitmom #doingitforthekids #doingitforme #newgoals #lifestylechange #mylife #momlife #motivation #meals #organizingmeals #couchto5k #c25k #fitmom #running #walking #goals
It was hot. I didn’t want to. My legs hurt. My lungs hurt. We picked a new trail and all the running was uphill. It sucked. BUT I DID IT. #noexcuses #hypothyroidweightloss #hypothyroidismweightloss #couchto5k #healthylifestyle
Not sure where my last post went but let’s try this again. Day 4 (technically) but day 1 using the @uamapmyrun app. It’s a start. So it’s better than nothing. Not a #run but a #powerwalk - #asics #couchto5k #humid #ohio #lakelife #stressrelief #workingonmyself - now to try and adjust to the extra fatigue
One of the reasons I love running is that it gives me self-discipline. You become the kind of person that can not only get through, but enjoy a challenge. 🖤⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ——————————————————-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Follow👉🏼 @pantrydoctor ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Follow 👉🏼#pantrydoctor ——————————————————⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🖤Like 10 posts & follow the link in bio to meet me 🖤Tag 3 friends that would love this⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🖤Turn on post notifications for the latest content ——————————————————- #love2run #lovetorun #runnersofinstagram #runnersofig #neverquit #finishline #runnergirl #womenrunning #runningman #longrun #ultrarunning #backofthepack #determination #runninglife #sherunsgvl #couchto5k #couchto10k #running #rungvl #sherunsgvl #marathon #runner #marathoner #marathonrunner #marathontraining #runalways #runhappy #motherrunner #runspo
This was harder than I would like to admit. But it’s the first time I’ve broken a mile since the beginning of my pregnancy and I was pushing my little butterball in the stroller! If anyone is looking for a cheap, easy way to get into running I really am enjoying #couchto5k . It gradually gets harder week by week (9 weeks total program if you run 3x per week) and you can find it in the App Store for Apple or Android. . . #2monthspostpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartum #fitness #fitmama #fitmom #fitnessjourney #fitnessgoals #movefor #mybabyboy #staymotivated #progress #running #runningmama
My bud and I started Couch to 5K tonight ..... loving that he’s requesting to run with me and even asked to continue to do it on nights he doesn’t have hockey conditioning 💕🏃‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️ #mothersontime 💙 #couchto5k #fitfam #brodylee
This girl was giving waaaay more cuddles than she normally does and was just burning up when we came home from our bike ride. Took her temp and she consistently kept reading 101 - 102 degrees so we decided to get her into urgent care. And SO thankful we did because she ended up testing positive for strep throat. 😔 . The nurse we saw said there were about 5-6 other kiddos in there today who tested positive too. 😬 . So we did loooots of cuddles tonight and are praying these mess kick in soon so Miss Mads can get back to feeling like her old self. . This is the first time Maddie’s ever really been sick and it is just SO sad! Heartbreaking to watch your littles be so down and out, isn’t it mommas??
Running for the views (also, towards food) 💦 But really - just signed up for a 5K in September with @wanderlustfest and trying to get back into running now!
Couch to 5K Week 2 Day 2 Done! It helps when you have great weather and a nice view to look at when you run 👟
She’s flying ahead of me, and I’m following her lead. What a strong and amazing girl we have ❤️
Great run tonight! I havent ran for a few months and it felt great to get back out there! #couchto5k #5km #running #learntorun #girlgotgoals #goaldigger #canadiangirl
the bag is empty because i ate them 😂 they are the most delicious dollar store find for a movie, ever! swipe for the nutritional breakdown
After I finished sharing about the what. why. how. to coaching on Sunday, I’m so excited to help one of those ladies get started to inspire women herself as a coach. She has been in my accountability group for over a month now and shows up for herself and the team everyday - challenging and encouraging us to be our best. I can’t wait to see the lives she changes! THIS is one of the many reasons why I coach 😍

Gym day (3 of 5)! Did you even go if there isn’t proof 😂?! #gym #humpday #motivated #inspired #ketojourney #weightlossjourney #couchto5k #fitmom #eatyourgreens #chaseyourdreams
Week 2 Day 2! Forced a smile today. Shin splints got the best of me but some days the victory is that you did it. #sweatingbeauties #motherdaughterrun #summerrunning #runningintherain #couchto5k #notsofunrun #running #shinsplintssuck #conqueredit
Latest exercise adventure, Couch to 5K! Are my times crazy slow... YES! But am I exercising vs. eating the Nutter Butters in my pantry, YES! Small victories every day, DO add up! I HATE to run, like HATE IT. If you see me running, you should probably run too because something is chasing me. My food challenge today was to resist the tortilla chips with dinner and to eat healthy Mexican food! I DID IT! Mexican food in Texas is the real deal so again, resisting these chips, was huge. Revel in the moment and enjoy every success, that’s my new mission. I also tried my new food for the day, mushrooms and bell peppers. Bell pepper, we can maybe be friends. Mushrooms, not so much. Any creative recipes to hide the mushrooms but still eat them!? #exercise #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #healthy #healthyish #couchto5k #run #running #runningmotivation #challengeyourself #gastricbypasssurgery #gastricsleeve #sheddingthepounds #mexicanfoodlove
Today I did something I’ve barely done in the last two years...I ran. Sounds funny right? But I am not a runner. When I started with Beachbody two years ago, one of my goals was to run a 5k with my big sister. After achieving my goal, and with a better time than I’d hoped for, I really haven’t run since. Because truth is, I just don’t really like running. I wish I could be one of those people who goes for a run to clear their head, but honestly I just get bored. But when my friend and coach asked if I’d run a 5k with her this fall since she’s never done it before, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. I may never be a runner, but it’s always good to push myself out of my comfort zone. Today was day 1 of couch to 5k training, and it definitely went way better than when I first did it two years ago! This year’s goal is to beat my time from two years ago. So glad that Liift4 is the perfect program to accompany my training. Today was a rest day on my Liift4 calendar and the run was the perfect way to spend it!
Wednesday night photo finish. 1.9 miles in 30 minutes jogged for 90 sec w/out stopping 6 times #couchto5k #everystepcounts #runlikeaturtle #northernrailtrail
Week 5 complete!!! Felt proud after I'd recovered! Thanks to @dave.moores.50 for not letting me give up! Here's hoping it gets easy now I've completed a 20 minute jog. #thisgirlwill #thisgirlcan #thisisme #determined #motivated #norunner #nomorefatmummy #couchto5k #c25k
So proud of myself last night I ran my first ever 5k - non stop in 38 minutes! With my amazing @runto5kweston !! 💚💚 #westonwhippets #running #couchto5k #c25k #c25kgraduate #runningclub #bodymagic #slimmingworld #slimmingworldmademedoit
Day 199: It’s been a while but I’m back out there. Never gonna get healthy and shift this weight if I give up! #365dayphotochallenge #running #couchto5k #running #healthylifestyle #weightlossjourney #dontgiveup
Keeping it real. I did not want to run this morning. It was dark, cold, I’m tired, my running app didn’t work. Etc. Etc. Etc. So here’s a picture of the beautiful first light at 6:15am. I ended up running 4km in around 26 minutes, yet I’m disappointed in myself. . . #running #run #goals #couchto5k #couchto10k #couchtohalfmarathon #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #inspiringwomenrunners #womenrunning #womensrunning #goldcoast #lovegoldcoast #ourgoldcoast #runaroundeurope #nike #nikerunclub #nikerunning #nikerun #myactiveyear
That's week 8 of #couchto5k smashed! Cooler weather this time, but I think I pushed myself too hard in the first half listening to Disney on Spotify 🙈 so I ended up with a bit of a stitch. But after slowing down I pushed through and completed the run. So chuffed 😊
#couchto5k Week 3 sesh 3 review - the lows. Week 3 is overrrrrrr🏃🏼‍♀️ #running #nuroute #nume
Woo run 2 complete! Really didn't want to do it today but it's times like that when you need to push yourself I guess!

It was graduation 🎓 night at Tipton Sports Academy for our Couch to 5k programme. Here is just one of our fantastic #teamtipton finishing their 12.5 laps. #proud #achievement #fitness #health #healthylifestyle #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #couchto5k #instagood #instavideo #tipton #samdwell #summer
And just like that I'm back starting the Couch to 5k!! Thought I'd worked it out right that I'd be walking back up the hill to my house for the cool down walk. Nope, I was doing the final jog up the hill!! #couchto5k #jogging #sweatyselfie #shirlandcookies #newmum #worldwifeweb
