WI # 13 - Wednesday, August 18

In sharp contrast to last week, this is how I felt this morning. Down 3.4 lbs! I'm 3.2 lbs away from my 10% goal and shopping spree-lette...yay!

You know those days when you just *feel* lighter? Today is one of those days. I'm fitting comfortably into the trouser jeans I couldn't even get past my thighs three months ago. I'm walking taller, standing straighter. I can see my cheekbones, which have been lost in the oh-so-adorable "Diefenbaker Cheeks" I've had since infancy.

Last night I struggled through the second day of Week Two of C25K. It was so much harder than Sunday's workout, even though it was exactly the same. Whether it was beacuse the treadmill in our building's gym is kind of crappy, because I was working out after a long day, or the headache I had all afternoon, I fought for every single step of that workout. I kept promising myself that I could stop running if I really needed to, but I didn't have to. I won't lie, I do hope it gets easier!

Not all runs are easy or fun. Sometimes they totally suck. It's those days that make it hard to keep going. You survived one, and that's awesome! Keep it up! and great weigh in!!!! :)

Congrats on your weigh in!

The running gets easier, then harder again, then easier and so on...

I had some runs that feel so much more difficult then the one before, then others I feel like I'm flying.
