Day 26 of my 90 Day Challenge
Let me start of by apologizing. I promised you I would post this blog every Tuesday. Well it’s Wednesday and for those of you who woke up Tuesday looking forward to my update, I’m sorry. I realize the disappointment I must have caused you; kinda like if you woke up Christmas morning only to find it was pushed back one day. I will try not to let this happen again. 😉
So today is day 26 and I’m holding steady at 125 pounds. I haven’t stayed at this weight since before my daughter was born so I’m quite pleased with this. However; I want to hold steady around 120 pounds. I guess the ViSalus shakes and the amount of running I’m doing is causing me to maintain so if I want to loose more I need to burn more calories. Boooo.
Last weekend I decided to start running 2 miles on the treadmill every morning before work and add push-ups and sit-up. I woke up Monday excited and ran my 2 miles and I did 25 push-ups and 35 sit-ups. I was feeling so good about myself that I actually did my hair before work. I woke up Tuesday ready to work out again and it hurt getting out of bed. My measly 25 push-ups and 35 sit-up caused me to be crazy sore so I did what any normal person would do; go back to bed! I knew this morning was gonna be hectic so I didn’t run either. So far I have run 1 out of the last 3 morning; this isn’t gonna help me loose any weight. I WILL run tomorrow morning.
This week I ran 6.5 miles on Saturday morning. It felt great! I pulled a Forrest Gump and kept on running. Wednesday morning I went into work late so I ran 5 miles and Monday morning I ran 2. I’m pretty pumped that I can run these distances with out walking. It took several, several months to get here. I remember the first time I tried 2.5 miles around the neighborhood I walked most of it and wanted to puke afterwards.
Still making my shakes for lunch with the Visalus shake mix and fruit blended in.
Thanks for allowing me to share my world with you…welcome to my brain.
