"If it does not challenge you it does not change you"

A thousand times a year I will utter the phrase, "I am on a diet".
And how long does it last, well not very long if the scales is anything to go by.
But I am so sick of it. I just want to be fit and healthy and not be out of breath after running for merely a minute.

So why the change of heart? Why NOW?

I am in my early twenties I should be loving my body not despising it!
So now that there are a million apps out there to track calories, have workout videos, and running plans for us mere individuals who are incapable of running for more than 30 seconds. I have decided for once and for all to KICK my derrière into shape!

So after scouring the app store and with a recommendation from a friend I downloaded the 5K Runner:
 0 to 5k run training. Free.
Free always is the key phrase isn't it? 

This app takes you through 3 workouts a week, for 8 weeks. With the goal in mind that by the end of the three weeks you will be able to run 5k.
However there is one downside (only a small one). You get the first week and the second weeks first day FREE. Then you have to pay a small fee of 2.69.
The first day you do a 5 min warm up walk then you run for 1 min and walk for 1.5 min and this is repeated 6 times, then ends with a 5 min cool down.

Rank photo I know but it is motivation to show how UNFIT I am.

Here's hoping I can stay motivated, I need not only a summer body but a whole new forever fit body.
