Jiggle Challenge Week 7

Weight Loss Challenge

This week I was so excited every time I stepped on the scale, because my weight continued to be in the 140's (even if it's a high number at the end! haha) and I really cannot remember the last time I could say that.

I lost .8 pounds this week (.53% loss) and I am very excited about that loss. I learned a long time ago, not too far into my weight loss journey, that for me the loss would have to be slow. There will be some weeks where I don't lose anything, and others where I lose quite a bit... and to lose almost a pound in a week this close to my goal makes me very happy.

I also met my other goal that I set at the beginning of this challenge. We had some beautiful weather this past weekend, so on Monday after work I decided to jog outside (which I haven't done since I started trying to build my time and mileage). I was only able to jog a mile, but I did it 9:40! I had set the goal that I wanted to run a 10 minute mile by the end of this challenge, because before I could only run a straight mile at a 12 minute pace. Since I ran outside I had a difficult time pacing myself, but did the mile and felt great!

And that's all for this week :)
