So I have not been running at the gym since my doc told me to layoff until I lost more weight. But I reached an impass last night. As you all know I am in a challenge to workout 30 days this month and to keep my heartrate up...I shoot for 150. Well I was having a hard time keeping it up at 3.5pace at a 2.5 incline so I last night I did 5 min at usual and then 5 min at 4.0 (running slightly) and I kept this up until 45 min then I switched to 3.6 pace at 3.0 incline. I was sweating like crazy and yeah my heart rate hit 180 and I had to drop it...I read you don't want to keep your heart rate at max but rather do 70-80% of your max heartrate in order to lose weight. So 20min of running was about 1 1/2 miles I was thrilled...granted it was not all in a row...but I will get there! Must note...need more glide..the shaffing under my teets is terrible I have a red line in front where my bra sits and its a little raw. Oh and my ankle did hurt last night. I had a plate and pin and some screws put in when I broke it in college and it acts up when I run, wear high heels, or a rain storm is coming in(seriously, I am like grandma betty telling everyone a storm is coming!)
So I may have peaked at the scale this morning because I just felt thin today....you know when you wake up and you can feel it in your bones....well I saw a 3lb loss but I am not counting it until tomorrow(if that scale goes up I am throwing it out the window and running it over with my car)
I had a good laugh this morning hearing Taylor Swifts new song We are Never Ever Ever getting back together---lol! that was great...how many times have we all said that!
Oh and hear is my punkin on his first day at kindergarten
