I'm not as far as I would like to be. And I skipped two weeks because I felt like there was no progress. But, that's why I haven't been posting. I honestly love the musical I'm in, but it is taking a lot of time. I kinda can't wait for it to be over, so I can add more to my workout! Because this body needs some more "stress". My couch 2 5K plan is getting much easier. The first time I tried doing this, I only got to week 2, because it was just "too hard." This time around, I feel like I could run just a little bit longer and go a little bit further. I think I caught the running bug. I actually
Ok, here are my previous stats:
Last Weeks Goals (2 Weeks Ago):
Finish Week 2 of Couch to 5K- I finished week 2 and 3! (even though it took me a little while)
- No Pop (repeat) - I didn't completely do this, but I've limited my pop intake to once a week, this usually occurs on Saturday or Sunday.
- Go to bed earlier (repeat) - I'm taking this off the list for awhile, with rehearsals, I'm not getting to bed till fairly late.
Let's see my progress:
(The differences are a comparison to last week)
Weight: 163 (+1) - But, yesterday morning I was 158. My weight fluctuates quite a bit! I think I may start weighing myself in the mornings??
Waist Measurements: 35 ½" (down 4½ ") I must be gaining muscle weight!!
Hip Measurements: 41" (down ½")
Thigh Measurements: 20" (down 1½")
Upper Arm Measurements: 11 ¾" (down ¼")
- Finish Week 4 of Couch to 5K
- Add some other physical activity at least 2x a week
- Drink 8-8oz glasses of water/daily
Well I can say that the running is helping! My mom kept saying I looked slimmer. Woman cannot live by scale alone!
Here's a reminder of my monthly/yearly goals!
Over all Body Goals for 2012:
- Run a half marathon: Lincoln Half Marathon 5/12
- Goal weight: 125 8/12
- Wear a size 4
- Go vegan
- Be able to run 2 miles
- Lose 10 lbs
Since this is my last weigh-in in January let's review these three goals! I am almost 100% vegan. It's the weekends that kill me! But during the week I'm very good at sticking to the plan!
I am not able to run continuously 2 miles. But my run/walk gets me to 1.95 miles so I say again, I'm very close!
Well, I didn't lose any weight, since week 1, I've actually gained 5. But, I know if I stick with running and adding some other sort of workout routine, I will be losing in no time!
- Sign up for at least 2 races
- Add another workout routine
- Lose 10 lbs
