Week One - Taking it Off

Happy Tuesday!!! 

We are leaving for Utah today, so I'll let you all know how that goes. Just wanted to pop in and update you all on this plan to lose the weight. I haven't had the chance to weigh myself just yet, but I'm hoping to be able to next Monday, and hopefully I'll see some results.

I'm happy with all that I was able to accomplish as far as working out this past week, but I know I can do better. We'll see if I'm able to stick with it all while we're out west (hopefully the extra elevation won't totally kill me). No pictures because I'm just here to keep myself accountable and keep track of what I've done.

Monday: 
-Walked 3.2 miles with Elsie and a friend
- 30 normal squats, 20 wide leg squats
- 4 sets of 20 leg lifts (2 sets on hands and knees, 2 sets laying on side) on each side
- Week 1, Day 1 of C25K with Michael and Elsie (1.7 miles)

Tuesday: 
- Walked a mile
- 50 normal squats, 20 wide leg squats
- 2 sets of 20 leg lifts on each side

Wednesday: 
- Walked 3.3 miles with Elsie and a friend
- 55 normal squats, 20 wide leg squats
- 2 sets of 20 leg lifts on each side
- Missed C25K today, plan on making up on Thursday

Thursday: 
- Walked 2.2 miles with Elsie and a friend
- Week 1, Day 2 of C25K with Elsie (Mike mowed the lawn instead... that's definitely a good substitute) 1.6 miles
- Rest day for squats & leg lifts

Friday: 
- 60 normal squats, 20 wide leg squats
- Walked 3 miles with Elsie

Saturday: 
- 60 normal squats
- Drove to Sioux City/Wichita, so didn't have time to walk or jog. :(

Sunday: 
- Walked 1.5 miles with family

Monday: 
- 90 normal squats
- Walked/jogged 2.7 miles (about 1.5 miles total jogging... YAY!!!) --> I'm counting this as week 1 day 3 of C25K because the longest amount of time walked was 90 seconds.

Total miles logged: 20.2/avg of 2.5 miles per day

Incredible!!! You're good at this - keeping up with the daily exercise, I mean. Normally after day 2 or 3, I'm slacking off. Keep it up!!

Well done! I've signed myself up for the Go Ruck Nasty (10K obstacle run) in September, so I went for a jog this morning. we're gonna do this. People are going to ask us whose babies these are, because we surely haven't had them. We can do this.

You're making me feel like a big lazy blob. Guess maybe I should feed off of your motivation. :)

UTAH! UTAH!!! Not sure if you're making it to Salt Lake or just hanging in American Fork but I'm sure you'll have gobs of free time while you're here *ahem* and would love to meet you. Let me know if it would work out. :)
