I’ve never done a blogging/weight loss challenge before, but when Kat served up the Awesome by August challenge, I figured why not? Besides that, the “logo” is lightsaber-wielding squirrels. How can you not want to be a part of that challenge? I weighed myself for my starting weight and emailed the photo (taken on my phone) to Kat:
This is super exciting for me! Since I’ve started consistently working out and paying attention to what I eat at the beginning of the year, I’ve lost 20 lbs.!!! Once upon a time I did Weight Watchers and the idea of starting with losing 10% of your original weight really stuck with me. I’ve lost 10%! I’m so excited!
I’m hoping the Awesome by August challenge inspires me to keep doing what I’m doing! Plus, it would be pretty flippin’ sweet to win something! 🙂
Yesterday I was super productive! I took all the stuff I set aside to donate to Goodwill, I canceled my Comcast services, and finally did my long run for week 2. I went 4 miles! Halfway through my route I passed by an apartment complex. A woman was getting out of her car as I was running by and she said “You’re inspiring!” How exciting! That kept me going for the rest of my run, yay!
Today after work I swam and went on a run, so I’m feeling pretty badass right now. Exhausted, but badass. After the main set on my swim I had to start kicking because my right chest hurt. You know that muscle that you can feel in your armpit, probably something like pectoral, but I really have no idea, anyway, it hurt terribly. Most likely it’s the fault of the pushups yesterday. I decided swimming through it would be a bad idea and I should rest it instead.
I’m going to go pass out now!!
