yeahh finally completed a week lol also I had the best run yet. My friend who is training for a tough mudder came along and she motivated me to run faster lol I was about 2-3 minutes faster than usual but I was quite out of breath lol. She also tried to get me to “challenge” myself and run up a steep hill but no way haha I could barely walk up it.
But no pain what so ever with this run which makes it so much more enjoyable. Only we were running straight into strong wind so that made it harder D:
All in all a great end to the first week! I have no idea how I’m going to manage 90 seconds of running.. but I suppose alongside 2 minutes of walking I should be okay catching my breath.
Anyway I’m away to have my dinner then head to the gym!
I can’t go to weight watchers this morning but according to my own scales I’m down 3lbs! Yay! I didn’t do a weight loss picture last week so this includes that one.
This is totally down to the gym and running lol. I’d never get the weight off if I just dieted.
I’m out of the 170’s! Yesssss!
(Also for my fellow Brit’s, I’ve only got to lose half a pound and I’m 11 stone something, hurray! Not been this weight since I was 14.)
fortheloveofshortshorts asked: Yay! I am so happy for you! You have done so much and have done so well! I think today's rest is well deserved! Great job sweetie! I'm so proud of you.
Just measured myself out of sheer boredom and was pleasantly surprised!
Bust: 31 inch
Waist: 27 inch
Hips: 40.5 inch
So I’ve lost 1.5 inches off my waist and 0.5 inches off my hips. Yessss!
My ankle pain is completely gone so this run was great :) It was freezing cold though and a lot of cars were going about so I had trouble keeping a steady pace but I think I did alright! 2.2 miles again.
Running capri’s and a new sports bra definitely made this easier lmao.
Now I’m going to get changed then go meet my mum for some lunch and then head to the gym!
I went out shopping today (did about 6 miles, actually…) and naturally I bought a tonne of stuff I can’t afford but oh well.
I got my first ever pair of running capri’s! Yeaah! Well make that 2 pairs cos’ they were on sale lol. They’re Karrimor and super comfy. I really needed them though because running in regular leggings is horrible. I was constantly yanking them up and bleh, you know the feeling.
I also got my first ever pair of shorts/hotpants ahhhh! Terrified lol. They’re my goal shorts to get into for my trip to Rome in 4 weeks! I can button them up only barely haha, so my goal is to lose an inch so they’re comfy and also tone the hell out of my legs so I’m not too self conscious about them :( they’re my problem area.
So I’ve decided to get my shit together and really go for it the next month. I’m gonna keep going with the c25k, continue doing 100 squats a day, my usual gym workout along with a load of walking.
I’m also starting a yoga class once a week and I’m looking into starting either zumba or boxing..?
Also if I’m brave enough I’m going to don a swimsuit for the first time in 5 years and go to my local pool lol so scared of that though!
I was so shocked trying on clothes today though, my shorts are a UK 12 (US 10) and I also bought a skirt in a UK 10 (US 8). Holy crap man lol. Plus my Karrimor running tights are a UK 12 (US 10) as well. Can’t believe I can actually get my arse in them lmao. Happy days!
Wish me luck guys! I’ll keep you posted.
So after a week of rest after totally wrecking my ankle, I gave c25k day 1 another go today. I went a lot slower paced than usual and it seemed to help. My ankle is still sore but its just a dull ache I’m able to ignore now rather than sharp stabbing pains.
I think I was running on my tip toes for some reason?! and that was causing my ankle to mess up a bit, once I consciously began putting my entire foot down it felt a hell of a lot better.
Also I found a new trail out in the countryside, it’s a quiet road thats almost totally flat and surrounded by beautiful scenery! It’s great. Theres a little pond/lake along it with otters living there, cute!
I only managed 2.2 miles (3.5k) this time, but I think that’s okay considering I was going way slower lol.
But yep the gym went well this morning as well, now I’m off to do some stretches so hopefully I won’t be in horrible pain tomorrow lol.
So I’ve rested my ankle and hopefully I’ll be able to start the gym again today and try c25k day 1 AGAIN D:
I’ve managed to maintain my weight the last 5 days despite not exercising but it’s not going down either so I’m glad to get started again!~
Hopefully I won’t kill my ankle this time
