If you didn't see already on the main Win, Lose, or Blog page, I lost 7 pounds this week. I should be thrilled, but instead I'm feeling a little disappointed I didn't do better. I have the most weight to lose, but didn't lose the most weight. Ugh! I'm trying to move out of that mindset and keep moving along like that tortoise. Slow and steady.
I did lose 4 inches off of my waist which is really exciting. I still have quite a few inches left until I reach an ideal waist size for my height (34" or less) but I'm on my way! I remember in high school I wore boy style jeans from the gap that were 32" waist (I wore them low on my hips). I also remember I could take them off without unzipping or unsnapping them, meaning my hips were hardly more than 32". Crazy!
This week I'm going to keep with my exercise and food intake. I'm going to up my cardio to 50 minutes (before cool-down) and try to add in more jogging intervals. I *think* my knee is doing well enough that I can add alternating leg days to my weightlifting, we'll have to see how it goes.
I also wanted to add some exercise goals. By the end of Win, Lose or Blog I want to be able to:
- complete a 5K in 45 minutes (or less)
-do 50 consecutive sit-ups (I can do 20 right now)
-do 15 real push-ups
How did you do this week? Any big plans for the fourth of July?
