Good day my wonderful followers. First let me apologize for last week’s lack of reading. I really wasn’t feeling myself. I know that I’m the one in power of my own attitude, but I truly was down after my collision. Even this week was difficult, mentally. But I did a bit more this week than last week. My trainer had me do some weights. And it was a bit uncomfortable but I did them. I did feel the weakness of my muscles and if I’m not mistaken, I’m pretty sure he chose lighter weights than what I’ve been doing up to this point. So that was a bit discouraging. But with that said, I know the body needs time to heal.

I also managed to go for a few run/walk intervals. I have the C25K app. If you don’t have that app, what it does is it helps you slowly train to run 5K. It uses run/walk intervals similar to The Running Room’s learn to run clinics. I managed to do 2K without giving up. So that’s a plus. Considering my first of the season triathlon is ONE WEEK AWAY!!!!!  Eeeeeeeeek!!!!

So anyway I had to do a check in for the current session of the weightloss challenge I joined. And while I didn’t get myself back down to 268, I did manage to get myself back down to 271.2. I had gone up to 274. I know that a big chunk of weight loss is about the food choices. But when your body is use to working out a lot and then suddenly you drop that amount, the body reacts. Anyway, I’ve started physio and I’m hoping between sessions with her and continuing with my personal trainer, I’ll heal quickly and get back into hard core workouts. I truly do feel better when I’m working out. And it’s kind of funny because I still don’t actually LIKE going to the gym. But when I’m not going, I’m unhappy. Stupid happy endorphins that exercise creates hahahaha.

So this coming week I’m excited to try some new routines. Flipping tires!!!!!  I’ve seen that on The Biggest Loser and always wanted to try it. But something tells me it’s hard as shit. I’ll see in a few days I guess. Lol I’ll include that in next week’s blog. With pictures likely yikes!!!

So I guess I’ll end there for now. I hope you’re all enjoying your long weekend, but still staying healthy and active.   Next week’s blog will include the results of my first of the season triathlon.  I hope that being 30 pounds lighter than last year will help improve my times. But if not, I’m going to be okay with that because like the quote says “I’ll have lapped everyone sitting on the couch” and whether I improve my times or not…I am 30 pounds lighter this year 🙂

All the best

Shawna
