We were lucky enough to enjoy a long weekend with SB so I’m just now getting around to a blog update.
I started the C25K program on Saturday. My motivation came from Dawnya who told us all on Thursday to “remember that healthy living does not have weekends off” and I got even more motivation on Saturday from Camille, who didn’t want to run but ran anyway.
I really did have both of these ladies in mind during my first attempt at C25K. I got to the mid way point and was ready to stop and just finish walking. My breathing was a little hard and my legs were tired. But I knew I wasn’t at my stopping point, I knew I had more in me. So I thought of those ladies and I kept going.
I took my littlest one with me on Saturday and did a little grocery shopping while SB and the other Rascal did a little ice skating at the end of our road. We had a friend over Saturday night and watch the NFL Playoffs. I’m not a big football fan but I was out voted.
I also started playing Words with Friends this weekend with Laura Belle and got to chat a little with her. That was fun but between you and I, I think she might cheat.
Have I ever mentioned that I don’t like to lose, unless its weight?
When I woke up on Sunday my legs were a little sore to say the least from my running the day before. It was a good sore and I welcome it. Sunday was a lazy day for us, we did some cleaning, played with the boys and by 1 all 4 of us were napping. It was great. We spent the evening at my In-laws eating turkey breast and catching up.
We were super excited that SB was off on Monday. I did a complete clean out of our master bath the bleach smell is still in the air. After I was done cleaning SB decided that he too was going to try to C25K and he also completed day 1. By this point I had already showered and was ready to call my cleaning my “exercise” for the day but watching him do it motived me to do day 2. I did day 2 with my ankles and legs yelling at me the entire time. I also watched videos on the computer teaching me to do sit ups with my exercise ball. Once I’m sure that I’m doing them properly I will join Ronnie and Brandi in the 200 sit-up challenge.
I also became Facebook friends with Ronnie so that was pretty exciting. Since I’m in the closet about my band I will only friend people who wont talk about Lapband with me on Facebook. I’m way more open about myself in my blog but at least on Facebook you can put a face to me and see my family. So if anyone wants to be Facebook friends please let me know and I’ll e-mail you. Also remember this post about my stage name.
I'm getting lots of protein but I have noticed that I'm shedding a little more than normal. It may be because I'm also growing my hair out again and when it gets long I do tend to shed. I have some suppliments coming from GNC that will hopefully help the issue.
I haven’t weighed myself yet this week because it is my TOM and I don’t want it to depress me. As it is I feel depressed when I look down just one of those days. Here are my numbers from the last time I weighed in.
1/14/12 239.7 LBS
Total loss since 9/8/11 35lbs
Total inches lost since 11/3/11 (including neck, waist, and hips) 8.5 inches.
My head is pounding and since by some small miracle I was able to get both boys down for a nap I too am going to join in.
