Welcome to week 15!
My goal starting Jan 1 was to lose 1 pound a week until July 2022.
15 weeks in and I’ve lost 16.6 pounds, so I’m still on track! From last week my weigh in only showed a drop of 0.6, but I had a heavy eating day yesterday after walking an 8k- Run Across America was giving out badges for mini-challenges, so I figured I could only boost my total walked. The goal is 250km by 6/12 and after yesterday’s walk I’m at 74.1. That leaves me with an average of 3 miles per day, which is totally doable since I got a gym membership and can walk even when it’s raining or super hot. 💪🏻
The walk yesterday left me a little damaged though- I wore a cotton shirt that chaffed the under side of my arms a little, and I neglected to put on sunscreen because I didn’t really plan to go on the adventure I did (walked through 2 nearby neighborhoods) or complete the 8k... my face looks awful and my chest looks worse. I also got a pretty good blister on my right heel, which is more annoying than painful.
The good news is that the insoles I invested in are working splendidly- I went to The Good Feet Store and spent a ridiculous amount of money on some insoles that they guarantee for life... they will replace if my issues expand past plantar fasciitis or if they break/crack/stop working. The only thing I’m not covered for is if I lose them. I already feel like they’re making a huge difference, but we’ll know for sure coming up here when I work my 12-hour shift tomorrow!
Time to reapply aloe and rehydrate and rest ✌🏻
