Another Week Come and Gone!

I can't believe my weekend has officially started! I've been ready for it all week! Part of me is really enjoying these four day weeks but I do miss having those hours on my paycheck. I'm sure I'll go back to five day work weeks sometime (sooner would probably be good) and I think it will be an adjustment to get back into it! 

Yesterday's eating and workout were both successful. I ended up doing my seven minute app workout, a run/walk for just over thirty minutes, another round of the seven minute app, and then I mowed the lawn for just over half an hour. I didn't get the entire lawn done, or walk the dogs because it was starting to get dark. 

Naturally it's been raining today so I most likely will not have time to finish mowing. Oh well... Hopefully this weekend! 

My workout was good. That seven minute thing is pretty good! I thought for sure it would seem easy but it actually worked my body so that I could feel it. I think that it would be really good for someone who's only got a few minutes here and there throughout the day. You can do two rounds in less than fifteen minutes. That's it! Imagine doing that twice a day - you'd get in 30 minutes of activity and would be on your way. It's definitely a good thing for people just getting into fitness or who need to get back into it. It's a free app and I definitely recommend it. 

My run went well...I'm definitely not where I once was with running but that's okay. At least I'm out there doing it. I plan to get a run in today (it's not raining THAT hard). I have had to do a little more walking than normal but that's okay. I'm burning a lot more calories(because I've gained weight and because I have not worked out lately, I'm sure that will change as I adjust). I will most definitely not PR my 10K on Friday. If fact I'm sure I will be slower than my last 10K. And? I'm okay with that. I'm back on track and feeling good and that's what matters. I always strive to do my best in races, but right now I'm just happy that I'm getting out there and doing it!!

I will likely not post tomorrow because I'll be busy. I'm heading out of town in the morning to spend some time with one of my cousins and her son before I head into the city. While there I have some things I want to do, including picking up my packet, so I'll most likely be pretty busy. I'm hoping to get a workout in on the elliptical or something at the hotel. If I can time it right, I'd like to do at least a short run tomorrow morning but I'll have to see how the morning goes. I want to be sure I have time to get ready and be on the road to get to my cousin's. I'm thinking a run before that might not happen just because of it being dark and timing and such. I'm definitely planning on a hotel workout, plus I'll be doing a bit of walking tomorrow. I've gotta get some kind of exercise in! 

Saturday I have the race, and then I'll get ready to head home. I'm sure we will be a bit busy this weekend, but I'll try to post my race report on Monday. If I have enough time before check-out maybe I'll be able to do it at the hotel right after the race. I'm not holding my breath on that though! 

I am starting my DIET BET on 10/1. You can weigh-in on 10/29 and 10/30. Because the diet bets only go for four weeks, it will end before the end of the month. I'm hoping to have a decent amount of people sign-up for this because I think it'll be fun and a great motivator! Please feel free to contact me and I will invite you. Or you can search for it. It's open to the public and is called "Rebecca's Diet Bet." Can't wait to see how many people participate and how much weight we lose! 

I also just joined the Jillian Michaels bet - the pot for that is over 80,000 dollars. That is split between everyone who loses 4% of their weight, and about 2700 people have signed up for this particular bet so far. I'm excited and I KNOW that I can lose at least 4% of what I weigh. It officially starts on the 24th so I can weigh in as soon as Sunday. I think it will be good to get a week of this one under my belt so that I know what to expect when mine starts the following week. And why not start motivating myself NOW?! No use waiting until mine starts, right?! I think it'll be fun and I look forward to it!!

I suppose that's it for now - gotta go get my workout done! Have a great weekend!
