Weekly Weigh-in and Running Update

Hi all,

I had my weekly weigh-in yesterday and…I lost a pound! So it’s still not that big loss I was hoping for but it’s still a loss, so I’m happy about that. Sorry I don’t have a picture, I lost my slip 😦 but I weigh 11 stone 12 lbs now. However, my body fat has crept up to 39.5%, so it’s up 1%. So maybe I only lost muscle mass! I don’t know. But what I do know is that I worked really hard in the gym so I deserved the number on the scale going down!

On Monday, I decided to switch up my running and do HIIT. I did 5 minutes of walking, then jogging at 6.3 for 2 minutes then running level 8 for 1 min, then continued that until I had got to 25 minutes total elapsed. A killer, and I’m going up higher on my next HIIT on Tuesday. I’ll be jogging at 6.4 and running at 8.5!!! Wish me luck please!

I did my usual couch to 5k week 9 on Friday, and hit some new PBs. I hit 2 miles in 29:57, so just under 30 minutes, and by the time I got to the end at 35 minutes, I had run 2.4 miles in total. So I’m getting there! And I’m proud of myself.

I’ve also been pushing myself more with my walking. I walked 37 minutes today with a few steep hills, and I intend to walk tomorrow and Monday as I won’t be going to the gym until Tuesday.

I also intent to work on my eating more this week, to really improve the number on the scale.

Hope you’re all doing well with your nutrition and fitness!
