Longest jog yet

Sunday, May 05, 2013

Yesterday I did my longest jog yet. My normal route is 2.2 miles. It's nice but for a while now I have been thinking about this longer route and wondering if I could do it and how long it would be. My parents came up to visit and so I seized the opportunity! They were here to entertain the kids so I had no guilt in leaving them with my husband. I shouldn't have guilt in the first place. They are his kids too, but I do end up feeling guilty any time I take "me time". It's just how I am I guess. Anyways. I took off. Felt good the jog went good. My long route was 3.67 miles and I finished it in about 45 minutes. I hit the 3 mile make at 36:34 I think. I can't remember exactly. I was super proud of myself though! My legs felt awesome when I was done. They were spent! While I won't do that everyday, I hope to do it once a week. I want at least 2 other jogs on my normal route a week. That is what I am shooting for.

I am wrapping up cycle 3 this week. Tuesday will be my last day. I have lost some focus while on cycle 3. I made it to my sister's wedding and things slowly got my and more lax each day. I am eager to get back to cycle 1 to refocus my efforts.

Over the last few days I have pulled down boxes of clothes that have been packed away for years. 5 years or more for some. To my surprise some of them are too big! Some fit! Some are still too small. It is a good feeling. I can see the progress. I should have pulled them down sooner but I didn't realize I was loosing that fast.

I have had a lot of great motivators lately so I don't know why I am floundering lately, but I have worked really hard to lose this and I need to work equally as hard to maintain the work I have done and make more progress. I have about 10 more pounds to go and I am hoping to get that off on this next round and then focus on maintenance. I am just so worried that I won't be able to maintain. I know if I set my mind to it I can and that should be that. I don't know why I worry. I am a worry wart!

Lets hope this week flies!!!
