So, I've lost 5 inches and 7.2 lbs. I wanted more of a loss on the scale, but I know I didn't do all I was supposed to do. That's my fault, so I'm not stressing about it. Plus, a loss is a loss. That is 7.2 lbs I am no longer carrying on my body. I know what I need to do for this next 6 weeks and I'm more motivated now to do it. I'm super excited about the inches lost though. I lost the most around my bust (1.25 inches). This always happens, so I'm not shocked. I'm also really happy about the inch gone from my waist. Whoop Whoop!
I started jogging on Wednesday and it was fabulous! I was planning to do the Couch 2 5k plan, but for whatever reason I just was not feeling it. So, what I did was walk 0.25 mi to warm up then I alternated jogging and walking 0.25 mi. I did close to 3.1 miles in 48 minutes. I was not in any pain or anything. I was really shocked because when I tried C25K back in March it was horrible. I was in pain and aching every single time I jogged. So, I expected the same thing this time, but it was not there. I think this is because of the strength training I've been putting in with Sam. That's really the only thing I can think of that is different. Regardless, it was a really exciting day for me. It felt GREAT! I'm going to keep walking the 0.25 miles, but slowly increase the jogging intervals. I had a slight injury. My shoes rubbed the skin off my heel and I was bleeding. I've learned to wear socks that completely cover my heel. I was supposed to jog yesterday, but I visited my grandmother for a few hours instead, so I'll do it today.
The bottom line is that I'm excited about working out. I look forward to working out and it makes me happy. I know it's going to be hard work, but I get excited to see Sam. I'm also looking forward to my next jog. This has been a good week!
Today's Song is Whitney Houston's Million Dollar Bill. I'm a slow jogger, so this song is perfect for em when I'm jogging. I love when I'm on a section of the trail by myself so I can sing out loud haha! Enjoy!
