Whew! Another week has gone by too fast. Craziness I tell ya. But this week was quite a bit better than last week. Not the potty training part. That still sucked giant monkey butt. Again. I EFFING HATE POTTY TRAINING! Okay. Moving on.
I completed week two and started week three of C25K. I have to say that I almost didn’t. When I looked to see what the intervals were I honestly didn’t think I could do it. Now don’t laugh, but seriously a 3 minute run kinda scared me. I don’t think that I had ever ran for a straight 3 minutes in my life. Seriously. I was the kid that dreaded the two days (fall/spring) of school in which we were forced to do the mile run in gym class. If I got wind of it before class you could bet your ass that I was going home sick that day. I hated running. I couldn’t control my breathing which would give me those awful side aches/stitches(? I really have no idea what they are) I was embarrassed to run because of my chest size and body weight. Since I’m really fair skinned I get SUPER red faced and that seems to last forever. Then to top it off, I would always come in last place. So really, who would WANT to go through that.
Anyway, the point of all of that is that it was a HUGE accomplishment for me to actually do it. I was initially just going to repeat week two because I didn’t feel ready but I decided that I would at least try it first before I admitted defeat. I’m already nervous about next week and its 6 minute run but I have promised myself that I will try and if I have to walk for part of that 6 minutes then so be it. I’ll just keep repeating that day until I can do it.
Also, I’m really loving running. 😀
I got 3 workouts in this week. Two 30 minute sessions and one 60 minute. I’m going to be striving to get 60 minutes 5-6 days a week. I’m just going to have to work up to it. I just keep reminding myself that it is better to be taking baby steps and losing weight slowly then doing nothing and gaining weight. With that on to my stats:
this week: 216.8
weeks loss: 1.2
total loss: 5.2
I look at those numbers and I have to remind myself of a few things to keep from being disappointed.
1. I’m not on The Biggest Loser.
2. I’m breastfeeding, I have to eat enough so I can maintain my supply.
3. It is healthier to lose weight slowly.
4. I’m making progress.
5. This is a life change. Not a crash diet.
6. I’ll get there, if I keep trying.
How are you doing with your fitness goals?
