 Friday– I did my 2 mile run at the gym this morning and then hit the weight room for tricepts, bicepts and abs.  I’ve logged 12.5 miles of running in the past 5 days and feel great!

Thursday– Another 2.75 mile run in 30 minutes on the treadmill early this morning. Followed up with yoga poses. I feel really good.

Dinner was finished at 6:20pm and then I went on a 30 minute walk.

Wednesday– My daughter is better and back to school, so I was able to go to the gym! I spent 45 minutes in the gold mine (weight room) and did everything from weights to planks. It was great. I didn’t cardio at the gym because… I decided to get up early and go for another run. This time I did 2.75 miles in 30 minutes.

Dinner was finished at 6pm and then I went on a 30 minute walk.

Tuesday– Another gym at home day. I got up early and ran another 2.5 miles in 30 minutes. I hate getting up early to run, but I love it when I’m done afterwards.

Finished eating at 6pm and then I went on a 30 minute walk.

Monday– Today I got up early and ran 2.5 miles in 30 minutes on the treadmill. Then I did three sets of push-ups and sit ups. I was planning on doing this at the gym today, but my daughter is running a fever. Mary, Kath and Allison, kudos to you all for getting up at the 5 am hour and getting to the gym, I struggled to get out of bed at 6:20am!

I squeezed in a 20 minute walk this afternoon.

Finished dinner and eating at 6pm. After some blogging, I went on a 50 minute walk.

Here’s a photo taken Sunday. I wasn’t able to resist the temptation of the scale this week and hopped on…still hanging on at 150 pounds. But that’s okay. When I put on my jacket this morning it was a bit loose. I could definitely feel those inches lost around my middle. So, despite the stagnant scale, I am still encouraged.

This week I will:

  • Go to the gym 4 times.
  • Stop eating by 7pm.
  • Walk after dinner.
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Avoid hydrogenated fats.

In addition to my usual diet and exercise solutions, I am going add the goal of running 12 miles this week for my part in Run Swim Bike Cook.
