Weigh-In Wednesday

in C25K, weigh-in, July 21, 2010

Good Morning friends…happy hump day!  Time to step on that scale and see how badly my splurges of the last week hurt me.  I mean come on, let’s be serious…I know it’s not gonna be a loss this week. I mean, did you see what all I ate last week?  Yeah, not expecting a loss.

Loss this week: +1.75 lbs
Total loss for challenge: -3.5 lbs
(23% of my goal of losing 15 lbs this summer)

Well, I have to admit that isn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be, but still not happy to have to jot that I gained almost 2 lbs.  Especially during a time when I’m in a challenge where I could win some mega moolah to take to Chicago in September.  Back on track and fighting to have all that gone and then some by next week.  Lots of it is probably sodium anyway, right? (wink wink)

I did start C25K W4 on Thursday….and got thru the whole thing!  Sure I was a little winded at the end of the 5 minute segments, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought.  I started to do day 2 on Monday, but when I went for my run last night, I ran into a skunk and deer so only got a mile done, so not counting it as day 2, rather it was day 1.5.  Pending the rain stops by this evening, I will finish Day 2 tonight!  It feels soo good to be running longer and longer intervals.  I’m still not close to running a mile straight, but I’m at about 1/4 mile so I’ll get there.

*Thank you all for the prayers for my Grandma and her heart cath last Thursday.  She didn’t have to have any stints put in this time and she doesn’t need surgery!  Just needs to get some cardio in to get her oxygen levels up.  Otherwise she looks good.  So thankful!
