This morning I got on the scale and I lost 3 pounds! That brings me to 210. I'm so glad I broke that holding pattern I was in, and now I'm back to seeing the scale move the right way. Earlier this week I came up with a really good reward. For every pound I loose I'm going to put $5 dollars in a jar. That way when I reach my goal I can buy some nice new smaller clothes. I also think that is a great motivation. This week I owe my jar $15.
I'm going to start this week off on week 1 of the couch to 10k then I might bump up to week 2. I kinda excited about that. Week two is 90 seconds of running and 2 minutes of walking. I might start that on Wednesday.
Goals this week: I want to loose 2 more pounds. I want to be on week 2 of the couch to 10k. I also want to do more strength training on days that I don't run.
Yesterday I got myself some much needed new running shoes. And I got a really awesome deal. They were originally $80, they were marked down to $60 with 30% off of that. And I had 2, $10 reward checks. For people like me who hated word problems in school I paid $16 for new running shoes!
Well I'm going to go eat lunch cause I'm really hungry, and then I'm going to test out the new shoes.
Okay, so I thought I would edit this post because I wasn't really firing on all cylinders when I wrote this, this morning. I've lost 25 pounds since I started this weight loss thing. I remember when I first started out and I had lost 6 pounds. I was so happy because I had lost the weight of my dog TY. (He's a really small Min Pin) Now I've officially lost a Buddy. Maybe that’s a strange way to look at it but I was carrying around a whole medium sized dog. That, to me is crazy.
