McFatty Monday

McFatty Monday comes roughly 12 minutes early this week...

I was a lot better this week. No, I didn't go every single day or even a good amount of days. But I jumped back on the fitness bandwagon. It was friggin HARD I tell ya! We live on post so the gym is literally less than 5 minutes in the car, but it feels like so far away when it's gloomy. And living in the PNW...gloom is the forecast a lot. [but i don't mind...for the most part]

I managed to get in a run on Friday night. It was good. I'm not back on the C25K Plan yet, but I'm using the same principles. I ended at week 3 so I'm trying to run for longer stretches. I didn't do anything really fitness-wise on Saturday, but was determined to NOT let Sunday be a day of rest. I went and walked half a mile and ran the other half a mile. I also did some weight training for my lower body.

I've decided on the run end of things to try and focus on distance now, rather than times...unless I'm doing a specific workout on the C25K plan. I can get the timing down, but I'm not a good distance runner. Eek. Just the thought of running more than a mile is mind-blowing. But I want to be a runner, right? Grrr. Darn that ambition of mine....

I'm hoping to see results from my efforts this week on my wednesday weigh-in....*crosses fingers*

I HAVE, however, noticed that I wore a size 6 dress to church today. AND...it wasn't an A-line dress. It was more fitted. This is nice since the last dress bought was a size 9. :D

Until next time...
