3-17-09: 258 to 254.6lbs YEAH!!!! I tossed 3.4 lb this past week. Coming off a 3lb gain was actually a good thing for me. You see, before, the old Sandy would blow it, throw her hands in the air and promise to get back on track "someday"; but someday would never come. A year later and "someday" still never showed up. Yep, that was me. I lived that cycle for 20 years.
This was my biggest gain since starting my "for real healthy journey". I persevered, took some great advice this past week like drinking more water, and I challenged my self to try something new and that was running.
Quick take on running... MAN! IT IS HARD!!!!! I am still not sure that God created our legs for running, lol. I was able to run a mile, first in place with Wii Fit and then on the treadmill, reeeeal slow. I decided to celebrate my toss, that I would run out in public, in my neighborhood. So I clocked 1 mile in the car before going home after work, I changed, told hubby I was going out and he wished me luck. After two blocks, I thought I was gonna DIE!!!! Seriously, my heart was pounding so hard, I though it could be it for mama. BUT, I cranked up my praise and worship music and kept going... one more block. I had to walk two blocks and then I ran another two. I did this until I got back home. So I actually "ran" half a mile and walked half a mile. It took me 14 min to complete. Hubby was waiting for me in the driveway, cheering and clapping as I ran up to him. You'd thought I ran a marathon. Oh boy, do I love that man!!!
The scripture of the week has new meaning for me: Hebrews 12:1
