Here's a recap of how this challenge has gone so far:
Week 1- lost nothing
Week 2- lost 2.5
Week 3- gained back 2
Week 4- lost nothing
I'm have been keeping a "chins up" attitude since I started the challenge a month ago, but this is the first week I'm feeling a little disappointed. I have been really working it in the gym. I've increased the intensity and duration of my workouts, plus added new cardio like the stationary bike and stair machine. I'm just stuck here. This morning I got up, weighed myself, and just went back to bed.
On a more positive note, I had my running club meet tonight. They changed the route this time, and it was slightly longer, 3.6 miles. I can now run half before having to walk briskly to catch my breathe. In the end, I finished the 3.6 miles in 44 minutes, which is about a 12:30 mile. That's not half bad since I only do this once a week, and its only been about 6 weeks. I've improved alot. I actually passed up a few thin young men, which makes me feel great, and I finish before the beginner Leader comes in.
You know what would make me feel even better? Getting into the 160s.
