Not really much of a surprise, but I gained this week. 1.8 pounds to be exact. I've been very upfront with all you folks, and you know that when I head home, I kind of give myself a free card to enjoy whatever. A lot of you go on vacations. This year, I'm not going on any official vacations, so I guess we can count last week as a "vacation". I'll drop the weight quickly, as I usually do when I return to my regular eating schedule.
I did my first C25K Week Five run this morning. This week has a different routine for each of the five days. Today was a five minute run followed by a three minute recovery period. I was surprised that I made it all the way through each of the runs. Last night I downloaded a bunch of dance remixes of songs that I really liked to get me through my run instead of that awful techno stuff that was on the C25K podcasts. Now that I'm running about five minutes at a time, it's a lot easier for me to watch the timer on the treadmill.
So... I'm setting a goal for the next six weeks. I want to hit my 50 pound loss mark (another 10 pounds) by the end of June. I think it's totally doable in the next six weeks. Now that my semester is over (even though I'm teaching this summer), I can focus on my eating and my exercise. I need to get over this hump that's been keeping me hovering around that 40 pound loss mark. And this is the time to do it :)
