I lost 1.8 pounds this week! What's great is that I'm 0.6 pounds lighter than what I was before last week's gain. It also means that if I lose just 0.4 pounds over the coming week, I will have officially lost 20 pounds this semester! I'm kind of excited about that goal. Each semester is about four months long, so 20 pounds in four months is a doable goal. I think looking back over this semester, with all its ups and downs and unexpected occurrences, THAT'S real life. You don't lose 2 pounds each week, and it's kind of hard to be disappointed when that doesn't happen. That's life. I also can't believe that I'm less than 10 pounds away from hitting the 50 pounds lost mark. That is exciting indeed!
Yesterday at the gym, I gave C25K Week Two one last go. I start Week Three tomorrow, and I'm kind of worried. It's walk for 90 seconds, run for 90, walk for three minutes, RUN for THREE MINUTES. Panic! Panic! I wonder if I'll be able to make it all the way through. Yesterday was also the first day that I've EVER run on a treadmill. I was so worried about it, and I was really conscious about not getting near the end of the belt. But I did it! It was great. One thing I'm trying to get used to is that at my gym, all the cardio machines face each other, like in a big square. There I was, huffing and puffing through my run intervals, and I felt I had an audience. It was definitely weird, but I know they weren't watching me. I just gotta get used to it!!
