Boy oh boy what a week...

I took some time off from walking and threw some strength training in. I then decided to go for a walk which turned into a run. Then I tried to go for a walk the next day and it.was.terrible. So I really really really debated hard over whether or not to go last night. It was 102* at 5:45pm...AAAAHHHHH; heat index was well over 106* and taking two little ones out in that weather made me nervous. Then it boiled down to my poor neglected garden. I HAD to harvest what I could and get it put up in the freezer. So by the time dinner was over, the garden taken care of and all the veggies put away it was past 9:45pm. I did enough sweating today being in and out of the stores, loading and unloading the car...so I'm glad I took a break.

Well, today starts a new week, so to speak. And it's on. I'm also thinking that even though my weight isn't dropping as fast as I'd like I need to update my measurements. I can definitely tell there's a difference in my legs and I'm starting to see definition in my calves...so I think it's worth visiting the measurement bin.

Until next time. ;)

You are doing amazing! You were busy sweating and picking veggies and didn't get to run? It sounds like you were still doing healthy stuff. Congrats on the three-mile run!!! WOW.

Congrats on the loss earlier on in the week, you sound like you're having a hard time in the heat when I'm shivering here in front of a heater. 17 miles is a pretty good effort, so congrats on that too.
