Time flies when you’re running 🙂 This has been a fabulous week for me! It’s the first time I write down weekly goals and better yet I’ve achieved pretty much everything on my on it!
I’m going to be mentioning Mike a lot in this entry and the reason is that he was participating in a step challenge at his job and I walked with him to help him get at least 20 thousand steps a day to help him place top 10.
Highlights from the week:
- I’ve achieved all the goals in my list for the week.
- I lost 7 lbs this week which brings my weight loss to a grand total of 20 lbs since I got active 3 months ago.
- Pena 5K – I reduced my time by two minutes since last week, finished it in 28 minutes and 23 seconds. This is my personal best at Deer Island ever.
- Ran Deer Island without stopping. One of my main goals was to run the this course without stopping. I can check that one off the list now.
Breakdown of the week:
Monday – Mike and I walked 8.5 miles in the evening. We walked from work to the train station where I leave my car.
Tuesday – I ran 4.11 miles at ungodly hours in morning, ungodly for me! In the evening Mike and I walked 5.75 miles at the lovely heart break reservation in Saugus. It’s a beautifully scenic and hilly course.
I usually gain a few pounds during the weekend. I spend a lot of time at my parents’ house. There’s always so much deliciousness everywhere!
This week I was telling Mike about it during one of our long walks and because he’s a numbers guy he simply commented that I was ‘losing one third’ of my weight lost. That somehow set things to a different perspective. I don’t want to lose 33% of anything! And that’s what I had been doing for ever. Some weekends I would gain all the weight back during the weekend.
I’m extremely pleased with the progress this week and intend to keep it going next week and into the foreseeable future.
Thanks for reading.
