gettin’ fit update: weeks 5 & 6 – just keep going

You may (or may not) have noticed I didn’t post an update last weekend. I was a busy beaver redesigning my premade theme shop (isnt it pretty?). So something had to give, and sharing my more intimate details about loosing weight and getting in shape got the ax. Shocker.

Today marks the end of 6 weeks of my gettin’ fit journey. Its been a challenging, enlightening, energizing month and a half. Thanks for sharing it with me.

Workouts:

I finished week 6 of C25K. Friday I ran for 25 minutes straight and thought I might just die, but I did it. That’s child’s play to some, but huge to me!

Diet:

I made a few yummy and “skinny” dishes I want to share…

Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie {via}

Spring Rolls with Carrot-Ginger Dipping Sauce{via}

“Kitty Chow” {via}

What I Learned This Week:

Last week was the first week I started to loose the drive and focus. But I just. kept. going. I’m now understanding the impact of simple endurance and dedication. The rate at which changes happen is soooo much slower than I expected, but just as surprising, things are definitely changing. I have more energy, I sleep better, my clothes are fitting better and I can physically see a difference in my posture and stature. So…Im in this for the long haul.

Pounds Lost This Week:

Last week I lost 1 pounds.

This week I found most of that pound.

Weird. Because I feel great and I dont notice a “gain” and I didnt do anything differently. There are definitely times I know I’ve blown it or just havent been doing what I need to, but that’s not the case this week. So I’ve started adding measurements to my weekly check in. I know the whole thing about the scale…that you can fluctuate for a number of reasons, but I didn’t really think of it before now. So we’ll see what happens there now that I have a baseline.

  1. Good for you, girl!! You looked great last week!

    I’m always on a fitness journey – I try hard to make it part of my daily life, and the “ten minutes a day” motto we heard last week rang true to me. I have committed to at least ten minutes a day, and am happy to report that pushing myself towards those ten minutes has ended up putting me over the ten minute mark every day!

    • That was such good advice, wasn’t it? The first few minutes are the hardest, but once you’re sweaty you might as well make it count and go all the way! ;)
