Week 5 Recap

Pounds Lost This Week: 3 lbs (16.6 lbs TOTAL)

Exercise: I finished week 5 of C25K! On Friday I was actually able to run the 20 minutes straight! It was such a great feeling to be able to do that. I am still in shock that I have lasted this long.

Sunday was my rest day. I exercised every day besides Sunday. I'm still slacking on crunches and the Bowflex workouts. I did them once last week. I really need to do both, but especially the Bowflex since I am a bit worried about the obstacles in the 5K Foam Fest. I need more arm strength for some of those obstacles.

This last week I:
Walked - 194 minutes
Ran - 57 minutes
Elliptical - 30 minutes

Eating: Sunday was Easter, so of course I had a very filling dinner & dessert. On top of that, my parents had M&M's on their end tables. Oh...there was also wine. ;) On Monday I had Easter dinner again because my mom sent leftovers home with us. My parents also gave us a ton of chocolate. I brought it home and thought that maybe I could control myself. I found out on Monday that I was wrong, so I gave my friend at work the rest of my chocolate for when she had cravings. I had some on Tuesday after I gave them to her. On Wednesday I told her that she can't let me have any more. I was good the rest of the week and stayed under my calorie goal of no more than 1300 calories a day. I have no idea how I lost 3 pounds this week.

Weak Moments/Craving: Wine and chocolate on and a couple days after Easter.

 Next Week's Goals: My goal is to loose between 2-3 pounds this week. I also plan on doing more strength training this week!

Start & 5 Weeks Later

Have a great week, ladies! I know that I will! :)

You are doing amazing!! I am starting a diet yet again this week so we'll see if I can stick to it. You are being very inspirational! I did get on the treadmill 4 days last week and this week I'll start the calorie/food part.
