Training Update III
*pic taken by Tayler after my morning run...
(ignore the open pantry..it was 6 am...what can I say??)
Well, its another update without loss....technically I have gone down, but I keep going between 127-129. My body is fighting to hang on...which is exactly what I thought would happen.
I need to refocus on why I originally started working out. It was to be healthy and to find a positive stress reliever. Having the goal of 124 before Thanksgiving was good, but I dont think I am going to hit it. I am hoping to get in several runs while in Florida next week. I am also hoping the timeshare has weights so I can do cross training.
We will be eating out every meal so......even with good choices, it is inevitable that we will both gain. Brian is only 1 pound away from his Thanksgiving goal. We both had 8 pds to lose before Thanksgiving and it looks like he will hit his. I have only gone down 3-5 pds. (5 on most days-3 on Mondays??)
I continued with my running in the gym this week and beat my previous running time by running 4.15 miles at 5.6 speed. I also did some cross training on the eliptical and weight training as well. This morning, I worked on intervals at 6.0 speed.
My goal for January is 6 miles in 60 minutes 3 X a week. This is a lofty goal and I hope I am not setting myself up for disappointment...(as with this weight loss goal)
On the bright side, I have to remind myself that if I am at least staying near my same weight, that is a huge accomplishment with vacation and holiday parties! Leave a comment and let me know what you are doing to stay healthy over the holidays! I need the encouragement!
