Welp, here we are at 287.4 pounds. Down 64 lbs from 351! Nothing to sneeze at for certain! However, I find myself annoyed as I’ve been stuck here since returning form the 4th of July vacation! Still; not too shabby all the same! Plus, I think the inches are still disappearing, so it’s all good.
Beyond that, I can’t complain too much. Just this morning, I completed week 8 of the Couch to 5k program. That translates to walking a five minute warm up, then running for 28 minutes straight, then a five minute cool down. That equaled out to about 2.3 miles this morning! I have one more week left starting Wednesday, where I’ll have 3 days of running 30 min, then I’m done! Seeing as I couldn’t even run a mile in high school, this is still kind of hard to believe for me!
Just about a month ago, I was talking with my coach about updating my goals. One of the goals I told her I wanted was to be able to run a mile. She told me, “You uh…realize you’ll be doing that in like two weeks, right?” I didn’t believe her then, now I can look back and think, “Well how bout that?”
So here we are, currently at 287. (Big Note! This puts us 12 lbs from the half way point!) Hopefully, this plateau breaks soon. I’m not despondent by any means; I know it’ll break sooner or later! Plus, I’ve got the coach to help me out as far adjustments go, we’ll discuss that Thursday. It just helps to get the frustration off my chest and this is my blog so….here ya go!
Until next time, later gaters!
