Hi everyone! Well, it’s been a week since my last post and I have good news. I’ve dropped a few more pounds.
Starting weight: 210 lb
Last week: 204.6 lb
This week: 201.2 lb
It racks up quickly when you gain it but takes a lot longer to shed it. I’m happy though. I’m still going to the gym 5 days a week and don’t want to go most days but I make myself. I’m pretty much doing all cardio on the treadmill and elliptical.
Today along with my usual 3 mile walk and 5 to 10 mins on the elliptical, I tried to run. I only made it 1/10th of a mile before I felt like I was going to collapse. I would like to be able to run a mile non-stop by time summer gets here.
I remember Shiloh Walker tweeting that she started running 1/8th of a mile when she first started and now she can run 3 miles. Also, she’s got a really bad case of asthma. She said “If I can do it, Anyone can do it.” When you say you can’t it just means you don’t want to. (Sorry if I got that exact words wrong
Shiloh….I got your point though)
Friday I have an appointment with Megan, my trainer. She’s going to help me set up a strength training routine and also talk to me some more about nutrition. That’s something I’m really interested in learning more about. I’ve set up a quick start program with her. It’s 3 training sessions for $99 dollars.
She was telling me yesterday that she allows her clients to have 4 cheat days a month and also expects them to lose between 6 and 8 pounds a month. So far I’m on track. I only allow myself to have one meal a week that is a cheat. Normally it’s half a cheeseburger with some French fries or a couple slices of cheese pizza. It’s amazing how good it tastes after eating healthy all week. :)
That’s about it for this week. As far as my quitting smoking, I am now 26 days smoke-free. Yay!!!
Before I go....I thought I’d list a few songs that are currently on my workout mix on my iPod.
- Hey Baby (drop it to the floor) – Pitbull (feat. T-Pain)
- In My Head – Mayday Parade
- Boom Boom Pow – Black Eyed Peas
- Club Can’t Handle Me – Flor Rida (feat. David Guetta)
- We R Who We R – Ke$sha
- Break Your Heart – Taio Cruz (feat. Ludacris)
- Only Girl (In the World) – Rihanna
What songs do you listen to when you workout?
