Week 1 Of the Biggest Looser Challenge done and I lost 4 pounds I am "Happy" sore but "Happy".
My biggest struggle this week was the 5k and the 500 step ups.
I did a walking 5k with Leslie Sansone You Tube Video
I had to stop and rest because of COPD my breathing gave out,but I finished it !!!!
The 500 step ups took me 6 sessions to complete. My right knee is still a bit sore.
All in all I have to say I am proud of myself. I have done things this week I didn't think I could.It gives me hope that I will get even better.
I have a few Challenges coming up this week
Saturday I am going to five o'clock mass with Hubby and then we are going out to dinner. Since we also have the Land of Oz Challenge (eat the rainbow each day) I plan to have a salad with grilled chicken and a fruit salad.
Sunday I an going to The Feast of St. Francis With Blessing of the Animals with Hubby, son Jamie, daughter in law Stacey, my grandson Lucas and their dog Riley.
Inspired by St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment, the celebration will feature a blessing and procession of a variety of creatures through the world’s largest Gothic cathedral. Animals that have participated in years past include camels, kangaroos, yaks, elephants, fennec foxes, and many more. Guests are encouraged to bring their pets to the Cathedral to be a part of the celebration and to receive a special blessing. An outdoor fair where Cathedral clergy will bless pets will be held from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM and will include festive music, food, a petting zoo, face painting, and tables full of information on environmental advocacy and animal and human rights.
There will be plenty of walking so I will get a lot of exercise, but there will also be lots of food, I am going to bring lots of bottles of water and lot's of fruit with me. I hope I can stay strong and keep away from all the goodies.
Wish me Luck
My plan for week 2 - Repeat what I have done in week one and eat a rainbow each day
