Usually when I don't blog on a regular basis, that means that I have fallen off the wagon, but I'm happy to say, NOT THIS TIME!! I have not been following the Couch to 5K program, I've been trying different things to push my limits; running programs on the treadmill, upping my speed to see how long I can last and stuff like that. I have also started using the EA Sport's Active 2 for the Wii. I have the first Active game they came out with and really enjoyed it. Actually it was what gave me the best results when I was working towards weight loss before I got pregnant with my second son. I think they have refined this version to make it a little more user friendly. Also, the program is a 9 week program instead of 30 days. I'm only on Day 2, but my muscles are feeling the pain! Today is my off day for the Active game, which means it is my running day. Depending on what time I get on the treadmill tonight, I might shoot for 3 miles and see how long it takes me to get there. We have finally subscribed to Netflix, so I can actually watch a TV show (I'm on Dexter right now) while I'm running and be able to hear it!
I'm still hovering around 10 pounds lost, which is a little discouraging. But I found something to show me the progress I am making...clothes shopping. I was on a mission to buy some new capri jeans this weekend (which I didn't up buying any, come to think of it). I grabbed my usual pant size in about 4 different pairs of pants and headed to the dressing room. I like my pants to fit loose, but when I put them on, they were pretty big, so I asked the nice lady if she could find the next size down for me. The dress pants were still a little loose, so I decided just to try the next size down...just to see...and holy crap...they fit!!! I had found a really cute pair of jeans on the sale rack, but they were 3 sizes smaller than what I was currently wearing, so I initially thought there was no way I could fit into them. But now I was in a pair of pants just one size bigger, so I decided what the heck...and guess what...I might wear them to work tomorrow!!! They are a little tighter than I usually like, but they fit! They are my current goal jeans :-) I haven't been able to enjoy clothes shopping for such a long time...it was a great day!
