a confession and a to-do

i heart photos. i especially heart not having to sift through tons of photos i'm not really looking for or interested in, in order to find shots that i want. it's for this reason that i'm outting myself as a flickr creeper. i creep your photostream and your favourites and add them to my own. some of my current favourite haunts are elise's photostream (well, how could you blame me? her blog's a freakin work of art in and of itself!) and jennifer's too. love love.

tell me (and for goodness' sake, save me hours of aimless wandering through flickr uploads) - what are your some of your faves?

oh, and an update to my to-do list: i went running last night. it wasn't so much running as mostly walking quickly, but i did run a little bit. and by a little bit, i mean across the street and then up to the next stop sign (which really wasn't all that far at all). but it's a start. i speedy-walked and my lungs didn't explode, which was pretty sweet. i'm not even aching today (which i'm starting to think is a sure sign that i really didn't push myself yesterday, which i kind of already knew anyways).

so - tonight - i'm going to run again. and i'm going to actually aim for half a block, maybe with a few stops to lay down and die along the way. but it's gonna be great. it is. really.

in the meanwhile, i'm strongly considering buying this workout video because there's a whole bunch of comments on kal's blog saying that it's a pretty awesome workout. and it's 2o mins of shredding. shredding. come on - could it get any cooler?

I just finished doing day 2 of the 30 day shred. Aaahh!! I was so sore this morning, so I guess that's a good thing. It's a butt kicker, at least to me, but it's only 25-30 mins, so not too bad.

The Shred is totally worth it. And, like Mendy says, be prepared to be paralyzed for the first few days. I certainly was!

Congrats on going for the run again! Good luck, remember to keep your thoughts positive. I always cheer myself on (in my head) as I go. It helps...really.

I have thought about going out for a run several times - that kind of counts as exercise, right?

I might get that video you're thinking about. I wonder if it requires lots of bouncing around, because I have people living below me and they probably wouldn't enjoy listening to me jump about. But it would be so convenient.

I'm using this: http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml
couch to 5k program. I'm in week 6 and so far, so good. It starts off pretty slow with just 90 seconds of jogging (which was surprisingly difficult in the beginning) and now I'm running for 10 minutes at a time which is HARD but I'm doing it. And I never really thought I could. I highly recommend it since it gradually builds up stamina.
