First things first. I lost 1.4 pounds in the last week, bringing my total weight loss in 6 weeks to 10.6 pounds. Not too shabby. 🙂 I updated my inspiration board too! I was e-mailing with my mom about this today and she said to me, “Do you realize that you’ve lost 10% of the weight you wanted to lose?”
Holy crap. I totally have.
I’ve also lost 4% of my total body weight in 6 weeks.
10.6 pounds is the equivalent of:
- 42 sticks of butter
- 5 liters of soda
- 7 dozen eggs
- 3.2 chickens
- a 6-pack of beer
- a 12-pack of soda
In case you were wondering… 🙂
Now, on to even BIGGER NEWS!
I started Couch to 5k this week. If you’ve followed my dailymile training, you know I’ve been struggling. Today was different.
I ran y’all. I RAN. I ran 100% of the time I was supposed to. I F*cking RAN. This is HUGE. The last time I did C25K, I averaged my running “speed” at 3.7-4.0. This is walking for y’all, but was jogging for me. Today I ranged between 4.1-4.7!!! It wasn’t until I was in the last running leg that I realized what I had just done.
I started sobbing, while I was running, on the treadmill, at the gym, during peak time. It didn’t matter. I was running. I did a li’l stretching then decided to head home. I got to my car. I started crying. I got home. I walked in the door, told my sis and started sobbing for a good 5min! She gave me a much-needed hug and said she was proud of me. It meant the world to me.
I ran today.
