This morning I woke up with a cough and was totally congested. My alarm went off at 5:30 and I had a decision to make. Was I going to sleep for another hour and a half and hopefully feel better or was I going to just get up and workout anyway. I chose to just get up and work out. Even though I was hacking a little on the treadmill, it felt really good to work out my body after taking a Sabbath break yesterday. Here is what I have done today.....
*I actually ran/walked for 2 miles today!!!! That is my goal for this week and I am excited that I did it on the first day. I have decided that I am not going to run for big stretches anymore. My right shin is really acting up and I don't want it to get any worse. I am walking for 2 minutes and then running for 2 minutes at 6.0. Towards the end I just walked at an incline. I was sweating up a storm and burned 250 calories during the 27 minutes I was on there.
*At the gym today I worked my upper body. I am getting a little bit stronger and able to use heavier weights now. I really am feeling the difference.
Saturday when I was at the gym running on their treadmill my size large workout pants started falling off. Hmmmm, I guess that is a good sign, huh?? Yesterday I was able to zip up one of my church dresses without sucking in or without the help of my husband. That is a big accomplishment, too!!!
I'm happy to lose my weight slow and steady as long as it continues to come off. :)
