Weight: 183.8 pounds (down 1.2 pounds from last week, down 22.4 pounds total)
Waist: 34.5 inches (down 2.5 inches total)
Hips: 40.5 inches (down 4.5 inch total)
On diet: I would probably have lost another pound this week were it not for book club. I was hosting, so I indulged in the margaritas and someone brought me my favorite dip (Skyline chili, cream cheese, and cheddar). I know I should say that I regret it, but I don’t.
NROLW cross-training: Still no squats and lunges. I did boot camp again on Monday and loved it still. The margaritas the night before may have been a mistake though. In fact, half way through I turned to the person next to me and admitted that I was regretting my life choices. Line drills+margaritas do not mix.
Today I tried the only Wendesday fitness class I can attend: Active Older Adults. Basically, weights for senior citizens. I learned that old people are super sassy and do not appreciate when you assure them that you “only” run half marathons (I was wearing a Marathoner in Training shirt, which is my running group). I enjoyed the class, but I’m not sure it’s going to be enough for my weight training goals. I’m still searching for the perfect workout. I could theoretically hire a trainer, but that doesn’t really align with my fiscal goals.
On running: I have done 4 miles pain free three times in the last week! Saturday I ran with the No Boundaries group again. Turns out that I am actually extremely lazy and easily did an 11 minute/mile average. I seem to run much faster if I have someone to keep up with/talk to. Yesterday’s 4 miles sucked majorly due to the insane 20+ mile an hour winds. I actually had to come home after the first 0.75 mile to add clothing. I can honestly say that has never happened to me before.
Anyways, I know I’ve been lazy about blogging, but it’s because I’m busy trying to get out there and accomplish my goals. I’m finishing The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness by Dave Ramsey, which has me totally distracted. I promise cute baby pictures on Friday. Probably.
