NOTE: I thought that I posted this last week, but it just saved as a draft.... Oops. So this post is extremely late. I had a very very busy week! Last Tuesday I finally went to the doctor after being on my period pretty much since the middle of February with only a two week… Continue reading Belated Weekly Weigh-in
So I did really really great this week. Until last night and today. I went to my parents this weekend because a bunch of my friends from high school were in town and we had a little mini-reunion. This was pretty stressful for me because I weigh almost a hundred pounds more than I did… Continue reading Weekly Weigh-in
Up until this point I haven't really been on a diet. I've been counting calories, but still eating whatever I want as long as it's within my allotment (1200-1600 calories a day). But I've been disappointed with my weight loss (compared to the amount of time I've spent in the gym) the last few weeks,… Continue reading Week 4 C25K
This hasn't been a good week. I only went to the gym three times. I went a little over in calories about three days. I've just been stressed out this week and really wanted to quite the whole eating healthy thing and eat whatever I want. But I reeled myself in and only splurged a… Continue reading Weekly Weigh-in
I finished Week 3 of C25K on Saturday. It was tough. The first three minute run was okay. I actually felt pretty good at the end of it. But I barely made it through the second three minute run. I tried to do Day 1 of Week 4 last night but failed miserably! I was… Continue reading Couch to 5K Update
I gained weight this week. 😦 I'm pretty frustrated with this. I worked out every day this week except for Thursday. I stuck to my diet. I feel like I lost weight. And I feel like I should have lost weight! But when I stepped on the scale it said 227! I gained 0.4 pounds. My… Continue reading Weekly Weigh-in
On Wednesday Heidi and I did our first day of strength training! We used all the arm machines in the gym at the highest weight we could handle (which wasn't a lot!). We did two sets of 10 reps. It was hard! I didn't realize how weak I was! Stronger than Heidi though, which was… Continue reading Sore Today, Strong Tomorrow!
I haven't been skipping a day between C25K sessions. Oops. So far it hasn't bothered me though. Yesterday I ran Week 3 Day 1. It's 1 1/2 minutes of running, 1 1/2 minutes walking, then 3 minutes running, 2 minutes walking. Twice. I ran the whole thing!! I thought I was going to die. But… Continue reading Strength training. Help?
I have discovered a new favorite gym activity! The rock climbing wall! How have I never used this before?? It's like a treadmill rock wall. Like, it spins, so you can keep climbing for however long you want without getting too high. It was little scary at first. And every now and then I wouldn't… Continue reading Rock Climbing!
I was actually excited to weigh in today. I've had a great week (aside from the milkshake incident). I've stayed well within my calorie allotment and weight watchers points. I didn't eat any of my weekly or activity points. I went to the gym 5 days for at least an hour and a half each… Continue reading Weekly Weigh-in
