Day 18: Really looking forward to Sunday
Wednesday, June 18, 2008
Why Sunday? Because it's the last day of this challenge.
I may not have a _net_ loss for the 21 days, but I sure as heck have lost 4 pounds. At least 2 pounds, TWICE. :)
Okay, focus. Goal - at least 60 minutes cardio 5 times a week. Well, today I was trying to run at 5 mph for 12 minutes ... but after the weights, I could only run for about TWO minutes before I was gasping and holding on to the hand holds. :) So I made it an interval training workout on the treadmill - got up to 6.5 for 30 seconds, but also had to slow way down to about 3.5 mph on the one-minute slow phases.
Good workout. A tiny bit lower on the scale, still not at 208 or less.
Oh, and to answer Todd's question: why do I _need_ to work out for 2+ hours? Well, I don't, not really, but by the time I do my 60-minute cardio (my goal for the challenge) PLUS the weights, plus the ab work PLUS the stretching, it's easily over 2 hours. :) And still very little weight loss - I am staying within calorie ranges for the most part (heh - except on splurge days, when I totally lose it!)
But I'm back on the wagon now.
Here's to keeping on keeping on!
