Well, it’s here. March and the last update on the Perfect 10 Challenge sponsored by Steve at Log My Loss.
- Complete the Couch to 5K program. Yes!!!!!!! I finished the program in week 9. Last week I ran 5K on the treadmill and I’ve ran 30 minutes on the treadmill three other times in the same week. AND…. I SIGNED UP FOR A 5K RUN!!! It’s a local event and my family will come to cheer me on. I’m nervous and excited. I know I’ll finish, but I’m sure I”ll finish slow. That’s okay, it’ll give me a starting point to work from to get my pace faster. 🙂
- Drink 6-8, 8 oz. glasses of water daily. Better, but not completely. I got 6-8 ounces of water in at least four out of seven days. Getting out my old WW drinking cup has helped immensely in getting that water in.
- Adjust my eating to see weight loss. I saw a 1.5 loss, which is good. I had a good talk with myself about evaluating what I need to do to see more consistent loss.
As for the little tidbit on me….
I’m a diet rebel. I confess. It’s something that can be good, but can also be very, very bad.
When I started working on losing weight I knew that signing up for a diet would mean failure for me, so I refused to follow any specific plan. I cut out a few things and started walking.
This baby step showed good results, but I’ll be honest in telling you that it can only get you so far to just “cut out a few things”.
I still refuse to get on any one diet plan, because I know what I need to do to see weight loss. I believe everything in moderation is okay and I’m working on not rebelling against healthier food choices.
That’s the honest truth and I’m not totally proud of it. However, I’m working on it and I plan to see my goal weight reached someday with learning to eat intuitively and adding healthier foods into my diet.
If I can go from never completing a full mile in a jog to running for 3.1 miles at a jogging pace, then I know I can reach my weight loss goal as well. It’s simplygoing to take the same perseverance it’s taken to reach my first running goals.
I can and will reach the end of not only my first 5K, but my weight loss journey as well.
ur doign great
Awesome work! How exciting to sign up for a 5k, you are going to do so great!
Yay for you! I'm kind of a diet rebel myself, b/c I don't think they really work for me either. Granted, I need to get my hiney in gear at the moment and eat in moderation and exercise regularly, but it's a work in progress! I hope you're having a good start to your week. I'm on spring break this week, and spending time with family. 🙂
You are doing awesome with all of your goals! Keep it up 🙂
That is AWESOME about the 5K Leah! I am so proud of you! You are doing a fantastic job and I am so happy for you!
Committing to a 5K is a big step… or maybe it's lots of little, efficient steps. Congrats on that and the loss. Whatever you're doing, you're experiencing success.
I can see it now: Leah's Eating Plan for Rebels!
Good job on reaching your C25K goal. I am about half way through it and still have doubts I will ever run 3 miles at a time. Bloggers like you really inspire me.
I think your honesty about “dieting” and what you need to do will get you on track to reach your weight goal, tool.
Grats on completing the Perfect Ten Leah! Better late than ever. You have done well my friend!
