Okay so I started Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30: Week 3 yesterday and holy crap was that hard. I thought Week 2 was tough… geez. My legs were BURNING. Damn you Jillian! But I noticed that today I’m not even sore. That’s progress right? Does that mean I’m getting stronger? I hope so!
I have this goal for Thanksgiving that I will do a 5k Run To Feed The Hungry and a part of me feels like I need to go on the treadmill 3x a week to achieve that goal. Now I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again. I HATE the running long distance. I actually loathe it. But I have seen so many friends lose weight through running so I know that I will have to suck it up and do it. I think part of my dislike of it is that many people I know and some that are even heavier than me can run 3-5 miles and I can barely run 1 mile straight. It’s so frustrating. But to lose weight I have to run. What a catch 22. My bf says it’s because of my lung capacity and how much oxygen I am taking in because at about 0.5-0.7 miles I can barely breathe! I swear, one day I hope I can post a message that says “I just ran 2 miles straight!”
I have been working out 4-6 days a week but have I lost weight? I have no idea. I haven’t gone on the scale in a while. I’m actually scared to because I HATE seeing that number go up! I know I’ve gained some muscle but I don’t know how much fat I lost.
I probably won’t post this weekend so I hope everyone enjoys their weekend and see you next week!
