Remember last week when I was all sad and mopey about stalling out? Well my moping continued throughout the week. I kicked some sand, I pouted, I considered tape worms.
Well, no not really. She was much nicer about it but it could have been summed up that way.
She reminded me that I have not had many weeks of zero losses. The ones that I have had were somewhat planned and this is the first time I’ve truly stalled out. Thankfully she presented me with a few options to get things moving again. Add three ounces of protein on the days I run, a half hour before I run. This is in addition to my lean & green. I am also going to try using the Medifast Calorie Burn drinks. I can use up to three a day in addition to my meals.
If these things don’t work, then I might switch to the 4&2 plan. That would be four Medifast meals and two lean & greens. Its more calories which worries me a bit. But my body might be fighting me because I am not getting enough calories. We’ll see what happens with the first option before I jump to the 4&2.
I also did a few things to help rid me of my mood funk. First I went shopping. I wish I had better photos but, well, I forgot. So you get my dressing room photos, sneakers and all.
Now I need to get a job as a secretary. Meow!
Oh, want to know the sizes on those dresses? Size twelve, baby! What’s even better is that they were $11.99 and $5.99, respectively.
I also go my hair cut over the weekend. But there will be no photos of that. I hate it. The girl hacked the crap out of my bangs. I have to wear them pinned back until they grow out a bit. I had the rest of my hair done in a long bob. It looks ok – but kind of boring for me. Its very soccer mom and I am not used to that at all. I usually lean more toward rocker hair (um hello pink highlights. I miss you!)
I’m keeping up with the C25k. I started Week 5, Day 1 yesterday with an extra five minute run interval. I did the extra five because I wanted to see what my time would be covering 3 miles. My first 5k is in twenty days. TWENTY! and I wanted to be sure it wouldn’t take me an hour to do it. So, doing W5;D1 with one extra interval I came in around 35 minutes. Thats with walking so I am hopeful by the 20th I will have a decent finishing time. And even if I don’t, oh well! I still did it.
I’ve also signed up for this 2 week challenge. I’m totally scared of it. I also might have to modify it so that I am not overexerting myself. It calls for daily workouts and I might have to stretch it to every other day since I will still be running. However I do it, I’m getting it done. But can I just show you some of the terrifying shit I’m about to attempt?
There are squats, lunges, crunches and sit ups. Calf raises, dumbell curls, something called a French press, and V-ups (oh jesus have you seen these?)
WHAT THE MOTHER EFF IS THIS? They seriously expect me to do this?
Maybe I will place some candy corn on the ground as motivation to get up and down.
Speaking of candy corn, I found this graphic on Pinterest and thought it was funny. Its a breakdown of the true ‘magic’ pill required to lose weight. I find it hilarious that it looks like candy corn.
Did they intentionally do that? Because if all it took to lose weight was eating candy corn, I could be a size zero in a matter of days. I could throw down on some candy corn!
So it’s Halloween and I’m sure you are wondering if I got a trick or a treat on the scale this morning. Since I’ve been such a good girl, I got a treat. The scale is moving again and I am down a pound. Woot! I am 39lbs away from goal. Can you believe that???
Lastly, I want to leave you all with my favorite running song:
Month One: -16 lbs
Month Seven: -7.5 lbs
Month Eight: -5 lbs
Week thirty five: -1 lbs <insert happy face!>
Current weight: 179 lbs
Distance from goal: 39 lbs!!
