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!!

I admit-I covet!

Yes, I know that coveting is a sin, and I try not to do too much of it. But there is something that I have been coveting for the last 5 weeks that I have been following my couch25k training program. Take a look at this picture and guess what I covet.

 You guessed it! Collarbones!! 🙂

Seriously. I know what you were thinking, but noooooo-don’t want them. 🙂

I have missed my collarbones and didn’t even realize it until I started exercising recently. I WANT THEM BACK! So this is my promise to you. You better believe that when I find them again, I WILL POST A PICTURE OF THEM! 🙂


14 pounds down!!!

I have lost a total of 14 pounds since December 27th when I started exercising! Woohoo! 🙂

3 pounds in the last week!

I’m on week 5 of the couch25k program. Today was Day1 with jogging intervals of 5 minutes each. The 2nd day will be intervals of 8 minutes. Then the 3rd day will be 20 minutes. WHAT THE?????? From 5 to 8 to 20? Did someone  with a math disability figure this one??? You’re telling me I have to go from 5 to 8 to 20? All I can say is-I’ll try! 🙂

Tonight I was going to start my little strength training exercises at home, but I’m thinking I’ll start tomorrow. When I feel better. 🙂
