My second night sleeping in my new bed and I really cannot believe I used to sleep on that trash heap of a mattress. I woke this morning well rested, did my handsome man yoga video and weighed myself.
I am finally out of the 190’s and into the 180’s! At 189 I have officially lost 10 lbs since I started all this. I feel great! While weight loss is not the primary goal here, it surely does make running easier on my knees and back. I currently wear a 38 DDD bra and even with my extensively researched sports bra purchases and strength training, I still find that the longer the run the more sore my back feels. Carrying this shelf with me everywhere can be a real pain.
With the days counting down faster and faster I am refocusing my efforts. My plan is to run 3 miles every other morning during the week and one longer run on weekends. On my non-running days I will do my handsome man yoga video and try to give the legs a bit of a break. I’ll still incorporate a lot of walking since that is really how I prefer to get places.
