The Holiday Challenge!
Speaking of which - so last night DH and I had our anniversary celebration, staying at a local nice hotel, dinner, and a horse drawn carriage ride. We went and checked in and then both went to the workout room. I did the first day of Couch to 5k. I actually ran! For a minute! With a minute and a half between each bit of running! 8 cycles!! 31 minutes of this!! So excited. The last time I tried this, I couldn't do one time. Mostly because (I think) I could barely walk and even just the 20 pounds or so I've lost since the beginning have made the difference! Anyway - good times!! The rest of the night was wonderful Just good to spend time with DH and relax and be away and do fun things together. I didn't do too bad with food. One Cosmo, 5oz fillet with a little blue cheese on it. You know - up the protein. Salad, with dressing on the side. half of the side of mashed potatoes. And dessert. But overall, not bad for a good night out.
Back to the challenge! I weighed in heavy today - 263.8. Not sure how I feel about that - although I'm glad it's at the beginning. I think I'm getting ready for a period - so I am anticipating a quick loss there. We'll see. At very least, though, I am hoping to get back on track with basics. No pop. More good protein. More Water. More exercise.
Can you believe it's November???
