Almost down 10%
So I am really hoping to make my 10% weight loss this week since starting weight watchers 8 weeks ago. In order to do it, I need to lose almost exactly 2 pounds and weigh in at 207.9. I actually would like to lose 3 pounds but getting this 10% off will be awesome. They say just losing 10% of you body weight can give you a healthy heart, lower your chance of diabetes, give you more energy and mental edge.
I am going to try really hard to exercise daily even if it is only for 30 minutes. Last night I officially started the c25K plan. It was harder than I thought. It is 3 times a week for nine weeks. I will be posting about my progress. Last night's workout consisted of a 5 minute warm up (I walked at 3.0) then for 20 minutes you walked 90 seconds (3.5) and ran 60 seconds (5.0); it ended with a 5 minute cool down (3.5) I sweat so much. It was a way harder workout than just walking along at 3.5 the whole time. This workout repeats 2 more times this week. I am down to the last episode of biggest loser and trying to think about what I might watch next. Wish there were more Biggest Loser seasons I hadnt seen. It is so motivating to be watching it when you are working out. I think there are other shows similar. I have heard of a show called Ruby and I know that the UK has a version of BL as well. I'll have to get Travis to download for me. I am also thinking about watching 24. I have only seen season 1 and I know it can be addicting as every episode leaves you with a cliff hanger. Any suggestions?
