Fitness Friday #7


Dear Bathroom Scale,
I've been up and down this week, as you know because I couldn't stop checking in on you all week.  Earlier in the week I was THRILLED when you showed me a 193.8!  WHOOO HOOOOO!!  I know I celebrated a bit this week because of my husband's advancement as well as my baby brother being home so please don't let me have screwed up that beautiful 193.8!
Your Friend,
Dear Nicole,
Yes, you were way down earlier, but the Chili's (twice) and the Durango's lunch, you have probably had a lot of sodium.  So my answer to you is....
Not much off of what you wanted.  Hope you're happy.
Love Always,
Your Bathroom Scale
Dear Bathroom Scale,
Yes, I'm happy because it's still down!!
Thank you,

Last Week's Goals/Results: 2/4

:) Continue with C25K. Week 7 here I come! I did it! :)  Week 7 is DONE!  All three days were a 5 minute warm up, a 25 minute run, and a 5 minute cool down.  on Day 1 I had to have a couple of short walk breaks on the 25 minutes.  On day 2, however, no breaks!  I ran straight through!  But then on day 3, I had Baby Girl in her stroller and I just didn't have it in me :(  I ran sluggishly and had to stop several times.  I also didn't make it nearly as far as I had even on Day 1.

:( Log 4/7 days. I didn't manage this.  I think I logged 2 days or so.  As I mentioned above, I had a lot of celebrations this week and although I tried to make better choices, I still enjoyed myself a bit and forgot to log.

:( Take my vitamins. I forgot more than I remembered.

:) De-stress by doing something for myself each day. I got a mani/pedi with a friend, read a book, went for walks, and yes, I accomplished my goal.

My husband was officially given the notice that he made First Class! We pretty much knew he was going to, but this made it official so we went out to eat to celebrate.  My baby brother is home from the Navy for a couple of weeks so he came to visit and again, we went out to eat.  I had some girl-time with a friend guessed it...we went out to eat!

 This Week's Goals:
Pretty much the same as last week...
  • Although I did fine with Week 7 of C25K, I am going to repeat it.  The reason for this is that I start back to school and will have to run in the hot hot hot Florida summer afternoon sun after work. I want to make sure I am comfortable with what I'm doing. 
  • Log 4/7 days.
  • Take my vitamins.
  • Don't let the stress of a new school year get to me this week.

I love the scale dialogue - I too wrote letters to that darn thing in the 190s

I'm impressed by your week 7 progress - way to go!
