|Friday, Apr. 28, 2006 || Friday fitness update (2 weeks down...?? to go)|
Today is kind of a bittersweet day. I am back down to 143, which is ½ lb less than exactly a week ago, the same as last Saturday, and 2 lbs down from Monday. I told myself that if I got down to 141 by today, I’d treat myself to a bottle of wine I've been saving (takes me about 3 evenings to drink a whole one on my own), but looks like I get to wait. Ah, but it is good to practice restraint, right?
However, the good part is that I am down ½ inch in all of the four areas that I measure! So, the exercising is doing something, and though the weight isn’t coming off as fast as I’d like, I am obviously losing some fat and likely gaining muscle as I increase my running/walking distance.
I am up to 2.9 miles a day, 1.65 of that running and 1.25 of that walking, five times a week (I also walked an extra 1.25 with Rob last night). I plan to increase my running to 2 miles next week and walking to 1.7.
Overall stats so far:
- 6 lbs lost
Now, that should mean that my jeans won’t be as tight, right? We’ll see – I am going to try on my tightest ones today and see if I can actually sit and breathe at the same time.
