Weight loss: 5 lbs. (maintained weight loss for the week)
Inches: ? (will start tracking this statistic today)
This week has been pretty fantastic as far as exercise goes. Sister and I have a jogging routine that includes my entire neighborhood and part of the street outside of it. Because I am still without a pedometer, we drove our route to determine the length – 2 miles people! We were pretty impressed by this, as prior to baby I could hardly jog a block outdoors (my jogging consisted of a treadmill at the gym). Every day this week that we were able to jog (thanks to the weather), I was able to complete the route with ease, no breaks/walking required.
I’m not going to lie – when I stepped on the scale this morning and found out that I was the same weight I was last week… I was slightly bummed. I thought for sure I had lost at least 2 more pounds. However, the hubs cheered me up when he said that I really need to start keeping track of inches lost, because I am starting to look more toned. He said that it is common to gain muscle weight when working out but still lose inches. I know this and have heard it time and time again… so I suppose it is important to add this statistic too.
Goal for next week: Increase jogging route to 3 miles.
(All you joggers out there – any tips/suggestions to help increase the distance I run? What has helped you to increase your mileage?)
