Friday Weigh-in…



I super excited that I lost this week! Just imagine what would happen if I actually tried?

I didn’t eat quite as well as I should have but I did hit the gym and run outside several times this week.

On Wednesday I finally made it back to kickboxing. I loath ab workouts and strength training, so I usually leave the class when the hyper instructor tells us to get our mats and weights. This time instead of just going home after the class I hoped on the treadmill and ran an 11 minute mile! (I was trying to make up for the Lo mein I ate the night before!)

(random note: I’m getting good at my 11 minute mile! I think I am going to do one more week at 5.8 then the next week I am going to up it to 6.0 mph, which will be a 10 minute mile- wish me luck!)

Yesterday, after work M and I went to the gym for a quick cardio workout. She only had 30-45 minutes to workout so I made it worth her while! We started with running a mile… see hasn’t been running, so she ran about 5 minutes then walked at an incline. Once we were done with that we upped our incline to 5 for 1 minute then 7 for 1 minute. THEN we did sprints. Oh how I love sprints. Ugh. We did 30 second sprints with 1 minute breaks in between. We started at 7.0 mph and worked our way up in .5 increments to 8.5 then back down again. By the time we got to the last sprint we were pooped! But it was a good 40 minute workout!

I want to do better this week, so I am going to give it a shot. I’m going to do my best to record what I am eating and record my workouts as well. Cross your fingers!!

I’ve got to stop bullshitting and get rid of this weight. I’m still working on finding my happy medium, when I find it, I’ll let you know!

Have a wonderful weekend!!


  1. How exciting. I need to start doing some more cardio - it's my least favorite part of exercise.

  2. @Novelista- Thanks!!

    @AsianCajus- Cardio is not so bad... it's getting to the gym that is the hard part for me! lol
