I jumped on the scale this morning not really sure what I was expecting. I haven't felt like I have gained any weight. I have been staying super active around the house, painting, unpacking and I have barely had time to laze around. Even though I haven't been working out, I have been staying active for sure.
As for the food front, I have been doing my best, considering I don't have access to my kitchen at the moment. I did have a slip up Monday night with Wendy's. Scott had a ball game an hour after work so we really didn't have time to go home and eat so instead of me doing the smart thing and packing a supper for myself, we ended up at Wendy's. I got a Jr. Hamburger Deluxe and a baked potato...could have been worse but I'm still kicking my butt on that one. Other than that, this week has been going well. I was pleasantly surprised when the scale showed me 1.5 lbs down from last Friday. I'm finally back in my comfort zone. This is the biggest loss I have had in a long while! I'm still 2 lbs away from the lowest I have been (back in May) but at least I am back down around where I want to be. I will still do my official WI on Friday and hopefully I will be happy with the results! I still would like to lose another 15 lbs but really I am in no rush. Scott and I are talking about heading down South at the end of April next year. Either Dominican (We've been there once on our Honeymoon), Mexico or Cuba. There is a big group of us going down...any suggestions on where we should go? I DEFINITELY want to be in bikini shape by then and in order to be there I would need to lose about another 10-15 lbs or so. I have never owned a bikini in my life and this is my big chance!
I have heard so many success stories about the C25K program so I decided to try it out!! I will be starting next Tuesday. I have done a similar program before but ended up stopping because I had a tightness in my knee that only came up while running so I cooled it off for a while. Now I am going to give it another shot. If the tightness in my knee persists, I may try a brace or get some suggestions from my Doc. Anyone else have this problem? It may just have been the program I was on, may be have been too much too soon. Also I was running on a treadmill, this time I will be braving the great outdoors! I've heard that it is much harder to run outside so I'll be putting that theory to the test!
How is everyone else doing today and this week??
