Shrink for Good with the Sisterhood!

Time to be accountable with my friends over at Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans and weigh-in for the week. I had an emotional weekend and I’ve done a lot of crying. Stepped on the scale and held my breathe…..would I have more food to contribute to the Shrink for Good Campaign? Or would my emotions get the best of me (there may have been some hummus and bagel chip snacking)?

Yes I do! I am down 1.6 lbs this week to 142.4 lbs! Can I get a woot-woot! That’s another 2 cans of kidney beans to my pile for the food bank! This also puts me 2.8 lbs away from a huge milestone…50 lbs! I hope hope hope I reach that goal in the next couple of weeks!

For some extra motivation, I joined a challenge with the Shredheads for the month of October, to focus on either a 5K or 30 Day Shred. I choose to do both since I am alternating between the two to find a happy medium between losing both pounds and inches.

My workouts for this last week were:
Thursday-5K Training-1.5 miles (5 min walk, 1.5 min run/walk, 5 min walk)
Friday-Shred Level 1
Saturday & Sunday-REST
Monday-Shred Level 2
Tuesday-5K Training-2 miles (5 min walk, 3 min run/walk, 7 min walk)
Wednesday-Shred Level 2

Feeling good overall with my workouts. I am almost back to the level of C25K that I was on before Labor Day so that makes me feel better. I’m tweaking the plan just a little bit to see how far I can go. I’m gonna stick with the intervals for a week at a time so I can hopefully get up to 3 miles by November 8th, which is World Run Day, and complete my first unofficial 5K (around my neighborhood or local university) with the Sisters!

How did you all do this week…get some Shredding or 5K training in? Keep pushing yourself…you will be surprised what your body gets used to when you have a goal in mind!
