Everyday this week I thought, "You need to blog!" However, life has been a little busy and I didn't take the time to check-in!
Where we left off: Monday's weigh-in. I'm still uncertain about being 150 by 7/15/2011, that's about 30 days and around 10 lbs to lose. I hate being infatuated with numbers. It's been nice to wear shorts from last year that are now a little looser. Once July 15th comes, it doesn't mean my weight loss journey ends. I have my sister's wedding to look forward to and am very much excited to look great in my dress :) Not as good as Meg, of course!
Monday and Tuesday my workouts were on the exercise bike. Wednesday I wasn't able to make it to the gym because I had to go home for my Great Aunt's viewing. Thursday I did an early morning work-out and tried to run a faster pace mile than what I have been running. 10 minutes might not seem all that fast, but I have really only been running around a 5.3 - 5.5 mph pace. Friday I went to work and then met my Mom and sister in Frederick to pick out wedding invitations. I can't believe the big day is less than 3 months away!
Yesterday I decided to run outside in the morning before the humidity set in. For the first time I was able to use my Nike+ GPS app. I didn't have the chance to play around with it but I was able to use the basic functions of entering my age and weight. Then I set up my music playlist and hit start. It was great because it told me what my pace was, the time, and total calories (which isn't always reliable). I did a quick run and realized I am not good at pacing myself at all! I ran a total of 1.66 miles in 17 minutes. I think the app is really awesome and from what Scott tells me, it has a lot of other cool aspects.
Today I am going to prepare my lunch meals for the week, clean up my laundry, watch a movie, and make my way to the gym. Pretty decent Sunday minus that fact that Scott isn't here :(
