The first two weeks of the new year are practically over. Last week I kick started the new year off great & worked out 5 days. I stuck to my workout plan FABULOUSLY! I was very proud of myself. This week has been good so far as well. I didn’t workout Monday, just pure laziness, but I did workout Tuesday through Today. I have ran 3 days this week, making up for my run from Monday and then switching my cardio for today with tomorrow’s (running). I didn’t run my scheduled 3.5 miles tonight, but I did run 2. It’s been a long week, so I’m not going to stress out over it or be disappointed. I DID do my 4 mile run and my other 3.5 mile run, so I’m okay with doing just 2. I’ve been doing really well for myself, considering I ended last year in a workout slump. I told myself to just aim to run 3 days a week until my Half-marathon, and so far, for 2 weeks, I’ve done that… so not stressing! This week was also the first week back to my 2nd job, so I have been working a little more. I was proud of myself as I fought through my tiredness. Even when my body didn’t want to go downstairs and hop on the treadmill, my mind told myself to get up and get going because I KNEW I would feel better and more proud of myself afterward. And I have been! I have felt better after each workout, okay not ALL of them, but I feel better about myself overall. The other thing I’m proud of is I’ve been sticking with Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. I started that as a challenge to myself because I need to strength train. I HATE weight-lifting, but I felt if I did this video for 6 weeks and then started her other Shred It video, that maybe I’d develop a passion for weight training. Who knows, but I have at least completed day 8, and should be starting level 2, day 11 on Monday. So, hopefully I can keep up the good work and start seeing some changes.

On other news, I am doing a Biggest Loser challenge with some friends for 4 months (until the end of April). I am trying to not only lose my last 15 lbs, tone, but I want to look good in time for my 25th Birthday and sister’s wedding. I weigh in tomorrow for the Biggest Loser challenge. I wonder how much weight I’ve lost in these past two weeks. I’ve been TRYING not to step on the scale, but I have in the afternoons, which I know my weight would be higher then, but I wanted to see if even my afternoon weight was less than my starting weight. I’m excited to see how everyone else’s weigh-ins are going and to see if anyone else has lost any weight. I am really excited to ┬ásee how everyone is progressing and coming along. I am interested to see what my weight will be tomorrow. I will be working out tomorrow afternoon too and again on Saturday to catch up on my 30 Day Shred.

I don’t really have a lot going on right now… Just starting to get into the swing of things again, with the whole dieting, watching my calories, and exercising. I’m sure something will come up along the way–I’ll get some inquisitive question and try to answer it or solve it on here somehow. But tonight, I don’t really have one!

I hope you all are doing well though. I shall update later with something more exciting later!
