Howdy Sparklers!

I'm in a better mood today!

I got up and did my exercise this morning and I have been behaving myself really well!

Today was a jogging interval day, so I went for a walk to warm up.
It was just a 4.5 mile warmup walk emoticon
Then I jogged for 35 minutes( with logger jogging intervals today!) and got a little over 1.5 miles in that way...

Calories Burned Goal: 500
Calories Burned: 625

And I feel like I'm finally learning how to breathe as I jog... That has been something that I've felt like I struggled with, but it's getting better!

Although I must say that I really don't care for the feeling of my belly jouncing with every step I jog... Even after I tighten my core muscles to help straighten my back and give it support... I can still feel that layer of fat that bounces... And by the end of the jogging intervals, I felt like my belly fat was sore!

But then I thought about it... At the start of this I couldn't even jog for 60 seconds, let alone 5 or 6 minutes... which I can accomplish now! I had a lot more belly fat when I first set out on this journey, but quite a bit of that has melted off with the 30 lbs I've lost. Which means that I am actually feeling a layer on my belly instead of having a "spare tire" that moved with me! So if my layer of belly fat was sore, that's a good thing!

And I can conciously tighten my core muscles (and keep them tightened) for longer as I am jogging! If I just take a moment to look , feel, and listen to my body I can see so many signs of improvement!

So I'm not going to be discouraged by the seeing the same numbers on the scale, I'm just going to keep at it. After all, if I don't continue on this journey I won't get to see the end of the path, nor will I get to meet that fabulous me that is waiting!
