On track and setting goals

Just got my period and have been feeling bloated and crampy. Set my alarm to go to the gym and I woke up at one point and turned it off. But then I woke up again and thought, I'm awake, I'd better go! So I did. Got 3 miles in. I always vary the pace and the and the incline. It felt good. Three days in a row! Can I go for 5 days next week? Could I (gasp) possibly go on the weekend? It's up to me.

I have a little secret goal. Every year my girls run a mile in the fall for their school's fun run. This coming fall, I'd love to run with them. I've never done that, and I never thought I would. The only way I'll feel comfortable enough to do that is to lose weight. In a few weeks, if I get on a good workout routine, I'd love to start the couch to 5k program and maybe even do a 5k in the fall. I don't know if my knees will let me, and I'd be OK with not doing a 5k, but I think I should be able to run one mile on two days to be with my girls. Shhhh, don't tell! :)
