Heading Back Down

I weighed in this morning and I lost what I gained last week and then some which was nice. I lost 2 pounds bringing my total to 63.8 pounds. I've now lost 29% of my starting weight so I'm almost a third smaller than I was last November when I began this little journey. Who'd have thought?

As for the C25K, I made it through Week 5 Day 2 the other night. It was two 8-minute runs with 5 minutes walking in between. The first run was, dare I say, almost easy! The time went by quickly and felt good. The second run seemed to kind of drag but I made it through. I was pooped by the time I was done and too tired to do the eliptical, so I came home and showered and got ready for bed. Tomorrow is a 20-minute run. It seems like a huge jump and I'm not sure that I'll make it through. I know...I need to have a positive attitude, blah-blah-blah, but seriously....20 minutes of NON-STOP running? sigh. I will definitely try my hardest but I may need to walk just a bit here and there. I'll let you know how it goes.

My husband and I went to a Saltdogs baseball game the other night and we each won 2 free games of bowling, so I think we're going to use them tonight. I suck big ball generally spends quite a bit of time in the gutter! Again, I lack an athletic gene! lol....But, I still like to go every now and then. We've only bowled once together and that was about a year ago at a get-together with my office mates. Our team of 4 people came in dead last (out of 5 or so teams) and we ended up with the "best effort" trophy. If I get over 70 points tonight I'll be happy!

That's all for now. Thanks for reading. =)

It's always a god relief when that scale goes back down. Are you able or do you have any music to run to? I feel it motivates me. Sometimes I think to myself, just 3more songs to go, rather than 15 minutes to go. You can do it!

I want to hear all about your 20 minute run. Details please!

Congrats. That's pretty impressive dedication. And you sound really positive!

You can definitely do it....I know you can! If you feel like quitting during your run - which I know I always feel - just repeat to yourself that one more step, one more minute, and sure enough - you will get there.
