A Better Me, Week 34

Happy Victoria Day weekend!  It's a chilly and gray Saturday; but that hasn't put a damper on my day.  It started off early as we got up to attend Boxing Day in May at Terra greenhouses.  We got all our veggie plants; but we're going to hold off on putting them in for a couple of days as there is a risk of frost overnight.  I also got two gorgeous hanging baskets, a flat of petunias and some marigolds for the front garden.  Can't wait to make things pretty!

From Terra, I went to get weighed and I'm down 2.6 lbs!  I'm SO close to 70 lbs. lost.  My total is 69.8 lbs so far.  I thought I was at 67.9 after last week; but it was only 67.2.  While I was a little disappointed when I got my total, it gives me something to look forward to next week.  My 75 lb. milestone is just around the corner and from there 100 lbs and more.  It's exciting to see how far I've come even if I still have so much farther to go.

My workouts are progressing.  I'm still doing the C25K program and last night I was up to 8 minute run intervals.  Monday I jump to 10 minute intervals; I'm nervous and excited at the same time.  Today Pretty wanted to go for a run, so she and I went outside.  Did I ever tell you, it's a lot harder to run outside than on the treadmill?  So I took it easy on both of us and started with the very first workout, 1 minute run intervals.  Pretty struggled even to keep up with the walks, but we got it done. Even if she didn't run, she was still getting in activity which is something she doesn't do regularly.  We'll go out again and she'll get there; it'll just take time.  

Anyway, I'm off to enjoy the rest of my weekend.  I've got gardening, cleaning, basement/office rearranging and a trip to the zoo planned for the rest of the weekend.  Hopefully, I'll fit some more workouts in too.

Thanks for following my #weightlossjourney and my road to a #betterme.  I'd love to hear from you, please leave me a comment.
