Loving the iPod

Friday, June 04, 2010

So I did W1 of the C25K program today for the first time because I realized that I did W3 on Wednesday--you know, my first run ever. This is because I am iPod-challenged. My iPod is actually a shuffle and it is an inch by two. I got bright lime green so I wouldn't accidentally stomp on it and recycle it.

I have 100 fitness minutes so far this week which is not quite where I want to be yet but I am working up to it slowly so I don't lose momentum. I have been concentrating on my calorie range since Tuesday and doing pretty well. I am aiming for 1700-1800 calories. Unfortunately, I had a week of living dangerously the week before so I am not going to be too upset that I am five pounds up. OK, maybe a little upset. However, I lost an inch on my waist between this month and last (42-41). My hips stayed at 50 so my new WH ratio is .82. I want a 35 in or less waist but I at least my ratio is getting close to the acceptable range (less than .8).

Drum roll, please...234.9. That's 3.3 pounds up. Well, it's not 5 so Woo Hoo! I'll have better luck next week!

    Hang in there. 100 minutes of exercise is better than I've done this week!

    Ok, here we go. I am totally confident you've got this thing. Only one slip in the last week or so. I think you're going to be shocked next Friday (if you stay around 1700 per day.) It helps me to think of it as a weekly average so if I go over one day, I go under the next etc. C'MON, MAIA!!

    I totally agree with the other posters....inches are better than pounds!! (I'm inch-loss challenged & always a tiny bit jealous of everyone losing crazy inches)
    Way to go on your running! I think slowly adding in exercise is absolutely the way to go--if I had started out trying to exercise as much as I do now when I first started back I would have quit within a week or so. Keep up the great work!!

    I keep losing pounds & it SUCKS.

    I'm losing MUSCLE, so my arse is getting BIGGER although the scale gives a lower number. I prefer inches!

    Inches are better than pounds. I bet a lot of it is bloat. Keep up the fitness minutes!!!
