Couch25k-Week 6-Day 2

Had to do 2 10 minute jogs with a 3 minute walk in between. The 1st jog was A LOT easier than the 2nd one! Tomorrow is a straight 25 minute jog! Oh, my! 🙂

Here are some in progress pictures from last summer and tonight. YIKES! I still need to shed at least 17 more pounds if not more! 🙂

I can honestly say that the only real difference I see between last summer and now (I have lost 14 pounds) is:

1. under my chin     2. BUTT from the sideview     3. I see my shoulder

From the way I feel and the way some of my pants fit now, I really would have thought there would have been a more visible difference in the pictures. My co-workers are telling me that they can see that I have lost weight so why is it not showing up with the camera? Stupid camera! 🙂

Anyway, I’m trying to remember that my goal for this year is to run a 5k, not lose weight. I was just hoping that the weight would be a side benefit!

So I’ll keep on training. I did day 1 of the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred on Monday and haven’t done it since. Time to kick it into high gear!!

  1. Why is it not showing up on the camera?! Girl, you need to get your eyes checked!! There are HUGE differences there! I am amazed! Looking good!

    • OK-so I printed them off and looked at them again last night. My daughter said she could tell a big difference, and I saw it too. The only one that didn’t look different was the back view (INSERT WIDE LOAD SIGN HERE!). 🙂 Thanks for the positive encouragement!! 🙂

  2. I also see a difference, great job!

    You are making progress on your running. It’s a good goal. How did you do with your 25 minutes?

    Good luck this week!

    • Thank you!!!!!!!!!! I did the WHOLE 25 minutes on the treadmill tonight at my hotel at 3-4 mph. BUT-I thought it was too easy. I guess because it was the treadmill, and I’m used to training at the school track which is MUCH MUCH HARDER! 🙂 So, I’m going to try the 25 minutes again either tomorrow or Sunday. Then next week is week 7 which is 25 minutes each time, then 28 minutes, then finally 30 minutes on week 9. I’m psyched!!! 🙂
