In which I give myself a new challenge

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

(Sorry to borrow your title style, Lena!)

So now that I'm done with the 5K Your Way Rookie Running Challenge, I need new a plan to keep me motivated to workout regularly. I am planning to pick another 5K in my area to do, most likely in the Fall. But until I pick one and have a date in mind, I'm going to do the Coach Nicole 28 Day Boot Camp DVD according to the 28 day plan. Last night I did the Cardio Blast. Tonight is Cardio-Sculpt.

I am hoping that getting some more strength training will help me break through this plateau I'm on. I've been hovering around 145 for the past month, and I can't seem to make any progress. Some days it makes me want to settle for trying to maintain rather than trying to lose another 10 pounds. I am happy with my body now, but there is still room for improvement. I'm looking for more definition in my back, abs and legs. I've got this fantastic leather top that my boyfriend bought me at the PA Renaissance Faire last summer that I want to be able to rock when we go again this August. Also, I didn't make my goal for the 5K. I wanted to run it in under 35 minutes. So I can't get myself the reward that I wanted, that would be cheating in my eyes. My new goal is to buy the swimsuit
that was my 5K goal when I get below 140 lbs.

And now it's time to go home from work and run with my sweetie, so I'll say goodnight. Hope everyone had a Sparkeriffic day!
