C25K W3D3

So technically, I’m done with C25K W3.  However, due to the shift in my running schedule, I’m going to do an additional day on Sunday.  I’m starting to feel the muscle in my calves.  It’s that feeling I used to get in college marching band (we did an evil thing called “the chair step”).  It’s a very good thing.

Will be searching for some other strength training exercises, as the ones I tried last night were ok, but nothing I feel too confident about.  I’m mostly looking to do more exercises to shrink and tone my bust and upper arms.

Next Wednesday I’ll take my measurements.  I’m anxious to know if I’ve lost any fractions of an inch yet.  I have some lofty goals (Out of plus sizes by September 26 and Onederland by October 31) and I hope I can make them.  I’ve resolved not to purchase any clothes in plus sizes ever again.  I can’t wait to go back to the “regular” sizes.  I was there briefly back in 2007 (was doing Nutrisystem and lost about 30 lbs).  Can’t wait to break that 199 barrier.

Sometimes my impatience gets the better of me.  I’ll admit it, I weigh myself every day.  I need the constant reminder of where I am to keep me going.  The scale has been stuck at 119.2 for three days in a row.  This is better than going up, and I think I’m in for a big loss this week (weigh in is on Wednesdays).

Dumbbells

So tonight I started trying to do some weight training/strength training.  It’s a non-run day thing.  I think I’ll be doing this on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.  I bought a stability ball and some 5 lb dumbbells.

FreddyDog was quite amused with the workout routine I found online.  I have a feeling I’m going to be a little sore tomorrow morning.  Thank god it’s almost Friday.
