Last Week's Weight: 172 lbs
Current Weight: 174 lbs
Deficit: +2 lbs
i know this is a low amount of minutes, but I am SO proud of them this week because they were all high-intensity running/p90x minutes. woot :) Christine really kicked my butt in gear by saying last week that we needed to worry about the QUALITY instead of QUANTITY of our minutes. that's why i brought the heat and intensity hardcore this week :D
now, while i've got all of you LHAers here,
this is an important question:
what shoes do you wear while running/working out?
i have some cute Brooks running shoes. I only have them because I went to the sneaker store and that is what the man told me to wear, plus I am a tad shallow and he gave me the choice between two kinds and since these are pink and adorable, you can assume my pick. :) however, i am skeptical about the dude's knowledge. i have flat feet and VERY bad knees. and now that i've been running everyday, my hips have been acting up. idk if this just means i am falling apart, or the Brooks are not cutting it for me. i want NICE, GOOD, CUTE shoes :) price does not matter, i am going to consider this an investment in my health. I feel like this will be a great present to myself for working so hard at this half-marathon training.
so any comments/suggestions about what you wear/recommend would be greatly appreciated!!!
now. my week. i ate like crap. yep... chinese, beer, pizza, beer, french fries, beer, the works. that's why my weight sucks. (i love how i'm saying this before i even weigh in. i can just feel it. haha) but i'm turning over a new leaf with this 7-11 challenge. i'm already making a dent in my goals, i was up at 5:45 this morning, i ran 2.6 miles in 40 minutes :) i wrote down what i had for breakfast (monster milk, surprise!!) and i am about to leave to go grocery shopping for GOOD foods. :)
I am taking Lucy to the free movie at Mayfaire at 10am. "Imagine That." I'm not weighing-in until after. (this will guarantee i stay far away from the popcorn. brilliant, right?) so I will come back and update this post and post it on the LHA blog after.
Here's to everyone having a great week 8, we can do this!
