Slow but sure…Hot 100 update…

Weight Chart

So today’s weight, 187. I lost 1.5 lbs this week. Still have 7 more to go to make my goal and that is not going to happen in a weeks time but I refuse to fret about it. I am getting there. 2010 was a great year and just think if I use what I learned this year what I can do next year. I’m happy.

My goals I’ve been working on are the weight loss. Then my exercise. I am proud of myself for joining the gym on the 9th of this month and I have gone 9 times so far. Next week have planned at least 3 times and maybe a 4th if possible. I have been using the C25K program and have made it to week 4 day 1 which I have to do again. If I don’t finish the certain day the way I feel I should I repeat it until I am happy. I was able to run for the 5 minutes and the 3 minutes but couldn’t make the last 5 minutes to the end so will do it again next Tuesday. I did walk 2 days of my 4 this week, on my Nike 5K and one was my personal best of 40:28. I walked and ran this one at a 2% incline and ran at 6 mph and walked at 3.5. I love all the weight machines available so have found muscles I didn’t even know existed.

My menu planning, not on paper but on my grocery list and in my head. I could just throw this challenge out the window but I keep having plans on really doing up a menu. Maybe next week. :o)

So for my 2nd to last Hot 100 update, not bad. Not perfect but I have improved tons so no complaints at all.

I wish you all the most awesome and blessed Christmas ever. I hope that it is the best one yet. Take care my friends and God Bless you all!!

Julie, thanks for visiting and for your encouragement. I really can not say what is a good time for a mile, only what is good for me. I normally run around 11:30 ish and when I train harder should be 10:30 or less. Erin, my daughter, runs 8-9 min miles and my son does about the same. Of course the pros can run 5-6 min. or maybe less if for a short distance.
My first 1/2 marathon I averaged 15 min miles and my wonderful daughter stayed with me the entire time.
