May 28 thru June 4– Days 144 thru 151
One hundred and fifty days ago, I began my weightloss/fitness journey. Wow, how things have changed for me, in this area, since I started my “New Beginnings Journal.” I have completely transformed and have become a person who perseveres and continues to push the boundaries with my fitness. I have gone from somewhat active, to very active. You know when you do a BMI test and they ask about your activity level, well I can put very active. I still have a long way to go, but I am much closer to my goals than I was before!
Over the past few days I can honestly say that I have given 150% to aggressively get my $#!% back together with my nutrition, which was, is and will always be a pain point for me. I feel better, I’m guilt free and I’m focused. I am very happy and grateful that it didn’t take too long either. Whew! Bullet dodged. LOL
I started running this week after testing out that minor hamstring injury I had. It is still pretty tight and my range of motion, when stretching it, is very decreased, but I know it will get better. I am not pushing it. It feels really good to run again, too. I only do it three times a week, using my old reliable “Couch to 5K” app. I love the cheerleaders in this app.
I have more speed, also. Before when I ran, it was more a jog, but now it is more of a real run. I will thank Shaun T and Autumn Calabrese for their high impact workouts that really helped with my stamina a pushing through, even when I was huffing and puffing. Thanks guys..haha!
I am alternating my run days with either Focus T25 Workouts or 21 Day Fix Workouts. They compliment each other very nicely. I might do this for a while. If I start getting antsy, then I will change it but I’m good for now.
Extra Workout Challenge
Shaun T does these 5 minute workouts on his Facebook Page that you do in addition to your regular workouts. They are not easy. I opened my big mouth on Sunday and decided that I was going to do everyone this week. I started on Tuesday a day behind and did a double on Wednesday. It was tough. I had to offer proof to my followers, so I made this short video…lol. I’m a movie director now! Check me out!
Weigh in Status
I’m going to start posting my results again starting the week of June 9th. I will pick up my results from where I left off so you won’t miss a thing. Thank you and good night.
