I thought I’d give a little update on my progress so far…or lack there of. I had a really hard time doing week 3 which included a 3 minute straight jog mixed in with walking, but I just couldn’t do it. I couldn’t breathe at all and I ended up stopping early to avoid dying and flying off the back of the treadmill which caused me to burn less calories than if I were to just repeat week 2 again…and again and again. So I’m going to continue to do week 2 for probably a long time because it seems to be enough for me for now. It’s easy enough to keep me motivated but hard enough that I feel like I’m getting in shape. The goal for all this wasn’t to actually run a 5 k (though that would totally kick ass) but to just get off my ass and run.
But I did loose 5 pounds since starting. It doesn’t seem like a lot but I feel a difference in my stomach. And my face (especially my double chin which was driving me nuts) looks a little more like normal again. I’d like to loose another 6 pounds to make it an even 10 lost but I’m happy with anything.
