Starting Weight: 250.3
Last Week's Weight: 215
This Week's Weight: 211.8 (-3.2)
Holy cow. I was so surprised to see that number, I weighed myself twice! But it is true. I lost 3.2 pounds this week. I only need a pound and a half more to reach 40 pounds lost. (210.3) I can do it this week!
Highlights of the week:
1. Running a 12 minute mile. Yes. Yesterday I was running and was just like eh, what the heck, let's see how far I can get at 5 mph. And I pushed myself, and I made it a whole mile! I slowed down to 4.5 the rest of the run, but the last quarter mile I went back up to 5 mph. I like finishing strong.
2. Signing up for a weight room orientation. I am very proud of myself for doing this, for some reason I am still so intimidated of that room. So now I have someone to show me how to do all the machines, and who will hopefully help me create a lifting plan. I am going to ask all my questions, and if I go too far into personal training territory, I hope she will tell me and then I will sign up for a personal training session. I refuse to not lift weights, especially with training starting in a few weeks.
Hmm I know there was something else I wanted to talk about, but I have no idea what it was. Oh well. Maybe there will be another entry later today, haha. I am now off to have breakfast and get ready for the day. I have to leave early for work today, because on Fridays I go to Starbucks. It's my reward for making it through the week, and if I know for sure I'm getting it on Fridays, I can successfully avoid it the rest of the week! It seems to be a great plan, because it has been working!
Have a great Friday, everyone!
