Ugh, that's a 2 pound gain, and only a 2 pound loss on this challenge. UGH!
This week non physical challenge was a continuation of drinking water, staying away from drive troughs and the new one was to eat 5 servings of fruits and veggies. I did horrible on the 5 servings, one would think its would be easy but I do better on the no eating out that getting in the 5 servings. I tried every single day, but I'm not a fruit and veggie type of girl. I know that will will be continues onto next week and I have made my menu plan to include all the 5 servings.
On other news, I have started training for a 5k! The walking route I take is 3.06 miles which equal a 5k walk. I've always been an avid walker, and I know I can walk a 5K but I want to run one. Since grade school I've had issues running, I just don't run. Even as I have been doing the plan, I notice that my jogging pace is much slower than my fast walking pace. Then I start self doubting myself and blaming my weight. Maybe I'm just too heavy to be a runner.
The good thing is that now I recognize my own self sabotages and know that I am just making excuses to quit. I'm going to continue the training, just with modifications. For the training I found some really cool podcast by Robert Ullrey to use for the training. The first week is basically running 1 minutes and recovering 90 seconds between each run. There are 8 running intervals, and on the last minute Robert is saying that I should not be out of breath and I should be able to have a conversation. Well, I am not there. I am so out out of breath and breathing so hard that I can't carry a conversation with myself. My solution is to probably do week 1 for 2 more weeks.
As for the physical challenge this week, it's to time how fast we did 1 mile. Mine was 14 minutes, going to work hard on cutting that number in 1/2.
