Weekly Update

This week I tried a new class at the gym. YOGA!!! I loved it!!! Amanda from Run to the Finish has a new challenge every month, and this month is to do some form of Yoga every day for a month. Ive been doing a DVD at home, but nothing beats a great class!!

My Saturday run was awesome!! Only two of us showed up, and we ran intervals on the trail. 2 miles down hill, which means 2 miles UP HILL!! Run for two minutes, sprint 30 seconds, and walk for one minute.  I survived and was surprised how good I felt afterwards!! My last sprint she told me to keep going until I hit the road, it felt like 5 minutes, but Im sure it was more like 2, and I did it at a 9.15 pace. I wish I could push myself when I run by myself.

This was my list of goals for this week: Didnt do so well.

Weight: See the 170s on the scale. (lose 1.2 pound) Lost .6 lbs.
NSV: Id LOVE to be able to fit into my size 16 pants!!! I DID IT!! My sister gave me a pair of black pants when she moved out, I can now zip them up and wear them in public!!
Excersize: Get back to Body Pump, Body Combat, Abs, etc. I will continue running, but I want to increase the cross training. My wonderful husband took my keys with him to work, leaving me with no way to get to the gym on my Body Pump/Body Combat day.   YOGA!! I love it!! See above.  
Nutrition: Start juicing one meal a day. When I had increased the running, I gave up the juicing. Im ready to get back to it!!! Did not juice at all!! Major fail!
Next weeks goals:
Weight: See the 170s!!!
NSV: I cant wait to see what I discover this week!!
Excersize: Body Pump, Body Combat, Abs, running, and YOGA!!
Nutrition: Juicing.
