Ugh, me too. I weighed almost 10 lbs less at my winter wedding than I will at my summer wedding. :/ Bums me out big time.

In the meantime, Body Pump is making my shoulders much more defined - so yay! (these are the exercises that Beanie posted the video of).

Nice shoulders! I need to get started with that.

Oh man, I swear every muscle in my body is soooo sore. As much as it hurts to get around, it's a nice feeling! A combination of rock climbing, lifting weights (my thighs are killlllling me from squats), doing chin ups/pull ups and some hanging leg raises, and then also a whole bunch of weedwhacking to top it off, that always gets my forearms.

I'm pretty stoked, I wanted to see how many hanging chin-ups I could do in a row (I usually do 3 sets of 5 and I do usually cheat and set my feet down), and I got through 10. Going to try to build that up.

I haven't been on in a long time, holy cow. Way to go everyone!!

I'm almost down to my goal weight, just another 5lbs to go but I'm a lot more toned so all my clothes fit again, which is fabulous. I've got two 5K races under my belt, both times under 30 minutes, I'm running between 2-4 miles 3x a week, plus biking. Survivor Mud Run (5K mud run with 20 obstacles!) is in two weeks and Tough Mudder (10-12 miles, mud and 20+ obstacles) is in September.

That's so awesome Zoom!

Tomorrow I start on week three of C25K! Excited/Nervous for the 3 minutes straight running.

Also, was shaving my legs today and noticed muscles that weren't there a few weeks ago!

Awesome Zoom!

I ran twice during my vacation... 3 and 2 miles. Trying to see if I can run faster, but taking it slowly (the 2 miles were at 5 mph). Unfortunately eating has been a disaster as we've been eating out all the time and my willpower has been lacking, so I've probably gained a few pounds, which I'll find out tomorrow, so I got to get back on track today.

I'm getting PiYo from Beachbody too and I'm hoping to start it on Monday, along with the running. Should be fun.

I started PiYo on Thursday! Finally a program I can do relatively easily (although my flexibility and balance are pretty awful). I also ran 2 miles on Thursday and with the leg workout yesterday, my legs and glutes are killing me. I guess it's a good thing.

I gained a bit on vacations but lost 3 pounds already since I came back. Still 3 pounds from my lowest weight though, probably mostly water weight still, we'll see... still want to lose 5 pounds!

My Nike Frees are failing me for distance running.. ran a half in them& was almost crippled. I just did 5k two days ago with a moderate pace& had to tape my ankle and stop running. Anybody have any good shoe suggestions? So sad. I 100% cannot wear these for any future runs?? which means I need a new pair before Saturday lol
