Guess what? I FINALLY won the monthly contest with Courtney. That’s right. I lost more weight. It’s about time, really. I was sick of sending her gifts
I lost another 2.92% and am only half a pound away from my goal weight! HALF A POUND! Overall, I have lost 12.5% since January. Sorry while I brag, but daaaaannnngg am I proud of myself. Not to mention, I am currently wearing jeans that didn’t fit a few months ago. And they are too big.
And since I gloated over beating Courtney, I should mention that she is 6 pounds UNDER her goal weight. She even went bikini shopping. Skinny little punk.
I am still using my fitness pal, but not nearly as much as I use too. I am still working on my couch to 5K program. Everyone kept saying once I get in the habit, I will love running.
Those people are nuts. I do not love it, I don’t even like it. Running should really only be done when being chased. But I am still determined to do a 5K. I am currently able to run almost 2 miles without stopping. I have been running on an indoor track, and it is so BORING. If it wasn’t for my Pandora pop and hip hop power work-out station, I think I would collapse out of pure boredom. Pitbull jamming out makes it a bit better.
I am hoping to be able to keep this motivation going as it gets nicer out. I fear I won’t want to go to the gym, but want to come home to play outside.
I am also joining in with Living in Yellow and her #1800minute challenge. So far, I am 200 minutes in. I am hoping this helps with my motivation a bit.
I was starting to feel frustrated that you couldn’t actually see a physical difference in my appearance, so I took a picture from Christmas and a selfie form last week. Here is the comparison:
Sorry for the poor photo quality, but you shouldn’t expect more from me by this point :). I think the difference shows! Also, I should consider wearing make-up when I go to work. A little under eye oncealer would have worked wonders.
Work-out people: Is it better to have a cardio day and then a separate weight day? Or do some cardio and some weights each day?
