Marathon? 5k, maybe

I have been pretty consistent with my treadmill since I have decided to go for the marathon. I have found a new regimen to follow to get ready for the 5k. It says from the couch to 5k in 2 months, so we will see. Since starting it, I have actually run on my treadmill. I have never done that before. So I guess next will be buying a real pair of running shoes!! I also have been doing some research on elliptical's. I really would like to mix it up a bit. The treadmill gets a bit monotonous. I hope to purchase one with the next month. I don't know enough about them yet to just buy one. So far my weight has not really gone down much since Thanksgiving. But the good new is, that I have not really gained any either. I will continue to work out regularly and hopefully as I see results, it will encourage me to eat a little better. I do okay most days during the day, it's my dinners that could use some help. But now that I have a goal, I know that I can do this. Mickey has not really been supportive at all, but maybe after he see's how much I want this, he'll come around.
