2 and a half weeks. That it is all it took. 1 week of vacation and over eating...another week and a half of slacking of and continuing poor eating habit. 6 pounds back and a large loss of self esteem. Not just about the regained weight either but because I was disappointed in myself. The worst part is that with me that often starts a self destructive cycle. I don't feel good about myself so I have trouble doing anything about it, which only makes me feel worse about myself. However did a decent lunch walk on Weds. & Thurs and tonight I got back on the treadmill. I was sick of being shown up by the older women at work whom I got started on the fitness kick too. They are steady jogging 30 minutes now with the goal of a 5k in mind. Now the most I do is sprints. walk, sprint, walk, sprint. My longest sprint was about 5.5 minutes and that I had just finally worked up to a couple months ago. So tonight after a 5 minute warm up I decided to see just how long I could jog without pushing to dangerous levels. I managed 12 minutes at 5.1mph! So happy. I also managed to tack on another 3 minute sprint at 5.2mpg and a 10% incline towards the end of my work out. At the end of my 30 session I had gone 2.25 miles and after my 6 minute cool down was at 2.5 miles. I feel good. I will be sore tomorrow I am sure.
