I’m convinced that the hypnosis sessions are not making me crazy.  I think after just 2 days they are actually helping.  It changes your cravings if that makes sense.  I now have this nagging sensation that I need to go to bed at night, when normally, I’m trying to figure out if 11pm is too late to start watching a movie.  The only problem I foresee is taking the time to listen to it every day.  It’s only 20 minutes, but I could see how you can think of so many other things to do other than sit in a chair with your eyes closed. It’s all natural, and it has no bad side effects.   Luckily, it’s just Me and Nyah, so I don’t have too many distractions in my house.  It’s almost like meditation, which is something I’ve been trying to do recently, but couldn’t focus on for more than a few minutes.  After about a week or so, I’ll see how many changes I’ve actually made before I promote it.  Of course you can try one that you find, but I realize that with nearly 8,000 people visiting my blog every week, I should be mindful of my platform and things I recommend.  Since I went to parties all weekend and ditched my workout routine; I was determined to get back with it today.  I went to the park and attempted to run with Week 3.  My calves hurt so bad after the 3 minute run.  My legs started screaming at me with an Old English accent “Carli, why doth ye cause us to endure such pain?!” LOL!  I pushed through as much as I could.  About half way through my little sister called, very upset that I didn’t invite her along.  “No worries” I told her, “I’ll come get you and we can go back together.”  I finished Week 3 (as best I could) and picked her up.  We went back to the park, and walked to the cool tunes of Twilight Tuesday, a free outdoor summer concert series in the park.  At the end of the evening, I ran/walked a total of about 4 miles.

What Did Carli Eat Today? (Nothing to Brag about, but no sweets)

B– Banana Nut Muffin and O.J.

L– Beef tacos, mexican rice and Beans and too many tortilla chips and Salsa (My sis came downtown and we went out for Mexican my fav)

S– A pack of 4 snack crackers before my run

D– KFC – Grilled Chicken, Green beans, Biscuit (too tired to cook after my workout)

  1. Carli,

    I have been meaning to leave you a comment since I started running to your podcasts. I am finishing up week 4 and just wanted to say thank you! I have never been able to run a long distance before and would always be lagging on motivation. I find myself now looking forward to the run of the day and hanging on for dear life waiting for your voice to tell me to take my walking break. The music is so easy to listen to and I enjoy the challenge. I am looking forward to great results!

    Keep your chin up! The only way to know if the hypnosis sessions are working are to keep up with them as recommended. Then you can really say if it worked or not.

    Happy running!

  2. Z, congrats on making it to that point in the program. People always let week 5 intimidate them, but you’ll do just fine. Thanks for leaving a comment, and the other comment about fruit water. Sometimes it takes me a couple days to reply, but please know I read them all! Keep on running!

  3. Hey Carli…. I have been on week 3 -C25K was scared but i pulled through it like a breeze. I wanted to start a blog to track my weight lost journey. How can I start my page and where do I begin. I want like a journal you know…

    Thank you Carli’
