who ever would've thought that this chubber would spend most of her blogging time on workouts these days?
i'm doing ripped in 30 days. week 1 - i loved it, i could do everything, i felt challanged... started week 2 today - it was hard. some of the moves were difficult and i had to really modify - my back is still a struggle and i have to baby it a little. after the workout, i talked to hojo & she said "you'll build up to it" when i said that if it gets that much harder from week 2 to week 3, i don't know if i'll be able to do it.
after 1 week, i've lost a pound [this is from my starting ripped weight, not my last fgi8 one which was the lowest... i'd love to get down to that!] and 2.5 inches overall. the inches i'm proud of - they've gone no where but down... so even though i'm not seeing the weight fall off like i'd like, i am seeing inches disappear. yay!
my reward to myself this time is: 6 week six-pack.
i'm also running my first 5k on saturday. terrified. with my back going out and the shin splints, i'd originally wanted to be about 2 weeks ahead of where i am now. but i'm doing it. i'm not going to let the back win. i will finish my couch to 5k training this week - with my last run being the actual 5k. no practice... which worries me but it is what it is. i can do it!
i still know that i need to be a better eater, and i'm trying. but i also know it could & has been a lot worse. so i'm giving myself some credit.
