Default I'm so freakin' proud of myself

Not that long ago when I felt like I have the last few days, I would have used it as an excuse to not work out. I had muscle induced headaches. Like pretty bad, but with ibuprofen, the muscle achiness went away and so did the headache.

Now, I knew better than to do the exercises that strained my neck in the first place (strength training), but instead of sitting on my duff, I did week 1 day 2 of C25k and my total miles was 2.27 in 30 minutes and with 10 minutes of walking (I walk fast on both my warm up and cool down as I'm a fast walker) and then another 8 minutes of running and 12 minutes of walking, that's not a bad pace at all. that is 13:22 minute miles with almost 75 percent of it walking! I walk about 14:45 - 15 minute miles with straight walking, so the running part definitely speeds me up. And best of all, it felt great - not killing me.

Then, I came in, cooled down and then got my bike ready to take out. Last year I bought a Burley Travoy trailer for my bike so I could go bike riding to the store instead of driving. We have bike/walking paths from door to door of the 2 miles or so. I rode there, got my shopping done and came home - adding even more fitness to my day by getting a needed chore done. I'm going to do that several times a week and the same when I go to the farmer's market starting in June.

Anyway.... I did all that when in the past I would have used feeling bad as an excuse to do nothing. And guess what? I feel GREAT! And strong! And very proud of myself! Yay me!

Restart 5/18/15 began at 263.9. All time high was 275 in 7/03. Low in Summer 2012 of 169.
A for the first 50 pounds lost, plus a for every additional 5 pounds lost on the weight loss reboot:

Great job! That is quite a workout! I always feel better when I make myself workout when I feel bad. That is awesome that you have a bike path to the store! I wish we had one, we don't even have a sidewalk most of the way and its a busy road. It's in a large town, and people walk/bike it all the time so I don't understand why they don't put at least a sidewalk in.

Well done! You are one impressive lady. Always nice when you can incorporate some exercise into daily errands, and even nicer when you can have enough motivation to push yourself when you're feeling bad.

But look how well you've done, feeling poorly and all! Congratulations.
