Weekly Wrap-up - October 19, 2011

Overall weight lost: -63lbs

Weight lost this week: -3lbs

Work outs: Thursday - Work-out @ Home (15 mins) / Friday - Cardio (30 mins) / Saturday - Off / Sunday - Off / Monday - Off / Tuesday - Burn Workout (70 mins) / Wednesday - Cardio/Running (50 mins)

Accomplishments: This week I bought my first pair of big girl running shoes! I figured I needed them now that I am becoming a RUNNER. I went to the Source for Sports and they observed how I walked and found the right fit for me. I'm very happy with them, although I sure do hope they hold up given how much they cost! 

My new shoes after their first 5k.

Challenges: Today I set out to set a baseline time for a 5k run. Unfortunately, 25 minutes into the run one of the daycare volunteers came over to talk to me about Maddie and I hit the stop button on the treadmill. Unfortunately, there is no way to continue after you hit stop and so I had to reset the machine and lose my progress. I was pretty frustrated when I started back up. I was on my way to talking myself into stopping since I had lost my reason for running, but instead, I cranked up the pace and took out my frustration by running faster. I ran for another 15 mins assuming that I would have hit the 5k by then. The baseline will have to come another day.

Thoughts: I read a really good blog post by Sasha yesterday morning that really got to the core of where I am these days. I hope it inspires you too.

Good for you, cranking it up instead of shutting it down! I'll bet it felt good. I need to find that motivation again. I've fallen off the workout wagon and am finding it so hard to climb back on. Which is silly, because I know very well that it's a rockin'-great place to be!

And thanks so much for the linky-love. Nothing makes me happier than hearing I may have stuck a chord.
