Are these weeks flying by or is it just me? I swear I was just writing week 3 review and here I am writing week 4. I am loving my new planner to help me keep accountable of my workouts and such. Weekends are still tough as ever, but it's something I am working on.
This week was a huge milestone. I officially hit the 5 pound weight loss! This might not be big to some but for someone who struggles to lose 1 pound, I was so excited when I realized I had lost 5 pounds. I am going to give big kudos to the 24 day challenge that I am doing currently. Today is last day of the cleanse phase and tomorrow starts max phase.
Day 22 [Thursday, July 16]: Food is on point. I am using my fitness pal . After work, we went for a walk along the trail again with a friend. It is 2.5 miles long and it doesn't take too long to do.
Day 23 [Friday, July 17]: We had errands to run in the morning than it was time to get my workout on as we had plans for that night to go to the Padres game with some friends. I did week 4 day 2 of C25K - since I ran my furthest without stopping in a long time [Thank you C25K] I asked the hubby for the dress and of course he said yes! I love working towards something like this!
I ate 3 chicken street tacos at the padre game which I thought was a much better choice than other things I could of ate there.
Day 24 [Saturday, July 18]: I was up early to finish week 4 day 3 of C25K. We had some errands to run too. Than it was off to a 60th surprise birthday party. This is where it got tricky, I ate the cake, more tacos and even had a splurge of a drink, but the best part of it is that this is life. You can't eat 100% because life is going to happen.
At the birthday party, can you even tell I've lost 5 pounds?
Day 25 [Sunday July 19]: I took the day off and went to have a facial and massage. The hubby had to head back up north for work and I was home. I went to bed early though as I was tired from the weekend festivities.
Day 26 [Monday July 20] : I went to workout with my trainer to do some legs. I had to do jump squats, sumo squats with a kettle bell, pull throughs, back raises and abs. I got home to my present sitting outside my house. New Nikes! A girl can never have too many pairs of nikes.
Than I got this wild idea to go run on the treadmill about 8pm Monday night. So I did it barefoot, it hurt but it was amazing. I actually ran like 10 of those 16 minutes, I was very proud.
Day 27 [Tuesday July 21]: I was up at my normal time and back to C25K starting week 5 day 1. This is intense week as you run for 5 minutes, walk for 3 and repeat 3 times than do a 5 minute cool down. I was sweating bullets as the humidity here is crazy. I also changed up my breakfast from my meal replacement shake to a acai smoothie and I was not a fan, I was so hungry within minutes it felt like after having it.
Day 28 [Wednesday July 22]: I had to be extra early as I had an appointment earlier than normal today. I did day 2 of week 5 C25k. I swear that thing is live changing. The food is getting much better and I am excited to see the scale moving in the right direction. I am hoping to reach my goal of 10 pounds by end of next week to start August off right! This weekend will be huge for me.
We also have family pictures booked, so I want to get in shape for that as I use these photos for Christmas cards.
Happy Hump Day ya'll!
