Next Race: April 13th - Half Marathon
This past week I didn't get in too much running. I went a few miles on Wednesday, but aside from that, I didn't get any running in. I did, however, start strength training consistently. Now that my husband is living in a different state, I spend most evenings alone watching TV. In an effort to make that time more productive, I created a simple workout I could easily do while still watching TV. I took the strength moves from Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and added push ups and sit ups to the mix. I can get through it twice during one episode of TV and it's a pretty good workout.
I haven't noticed the number on the scale going down, in fact, it's going up. :/ Not ideal, but I know I need to fixate less on pounds and more on how I feel/look. I tend to obsess over the number on the scale and I find it just discourages me more than encourage me, so I'm shoving the scale under my bed and not stepping on it until after my next half marathon in mid-April. I'm still debating if I even want a "before" weight to compare to.
How do you feel about the scale? Love? Hate?
