Taking things in stride

No weight loss this week. I'm not upset though, i realize that you get back what you put into it. My running was going well, i never miss my running days, but i wasn't doing my upper and lower body workouts with extra walking. And i had one day where i went over in calories. I'll just make sure that this week i get back on track and work out 6 days a week. That seems to work for me.

On a more positive note, i ran outside again yesterday, and i managed to run for 21 minutes this time! I slowed my pace a little, and was better prepared. I knew what to expect this time, and i made sure to bring water with me. It was a much better experience than the first time. And i continued to walk at a fast pace for a while, then ran for 4 more minutes. All in all i exercised for an hour, so i'm getting back on track.

Today i will be going for a walk with a friend. She has two daughters, one is a few months old and the other is almost 2. Last time we walked i didn't get much out of it, it was more of a stroll for me. But she was sweating hard cuz she was pushing the baby in a stroller and had 30 lbs of 2 year old on her back! I told her that i needed to fill a knapsack with rocks but she laughed and said the next time we walk that i could put 30 lbs of child on my back and she'll carry her baby in her snuggie. So that will be todays adventure. I'll let you know if i survived! If i'm still able to move after that, i will come home and do my upper body and lower body workouts, then it will be time to watch Losing It with Jillian!

Then tomorrow i will be heading over to the Running Room to do the 20 minute challenge!

I haven't had much time to read all your posts the last couple of days, but i will do that as soon as possible. Hope you all are doing fabulous!

  1. Sandy, Keep pushing through!!! This is a process!! The results will come. Way to go on the running. That is awesome! Some day I will get there! Hugs!

  2. I can't wait to hear how the challenge went.

  3. Sandy,
    Hope the walk went well. My 15 month old isn't quite 30 lbs of child yet, but he is a chunk for sure :) - So I know how it is! I'll bet it was an adventure. Sounds like you are doing so well, that is great! How funny that we both had a week of no changes, weight-wise.
