Life has been crazy. Between the awesome exercising, Summer Reading quickly approaching, and a few other personal side projects I’m starting, I have not updated my blog in two weeks. No Workout Wrap Ups and No Reading Challenge Check Ins. 🙁 So, I’m going to try to double post and catch up on both today. Let’s start by catching up on the fitness…
Monday, May 11, 2015Monday I worked on upper body strength training during my lunch break.
Wednesday, May 13, 2015 I was out at a training Wednesday and got out early, so I deiced to take my run outside before my husband and son got home. Oh! I also got in my new Fabletics outfit. Nothing like running your three miles in brand spanking new awesome clothes.
Saturday, May 16, 2015 My first “long run” in MONTHS! There was some major pep talking happening pre run, and then I pulled up to the park to find a 5K with doggies happening. Ha! It’s never dull. Anywho, I’m running my weekly runs straight through, but am doing intervals for the weekend long runs. I completed this six miles running 5 minutes/walking 1 minute. It felt pretty great.

-2 upper body strength training sessions
This was my final week of the Fit Girls’ Guide #28DayJumpstart. I am so happy with my results and will be joining the next challenge on June 1. I highly recommend checking them out if you’re looking to build better exercise and eating habits, while being part of an awesome Instagram community.
Here was this week’s food:
Lunch was Build a Bowls, but I have no pictures. 🙁
Now, probably the part everyone has been waiting for, my results:
In 28 days, I lost 5.2 pounds and 9 inches! WOOHOO!!!! Note: My before pictures are from 3/15/15. I started the challenge, but never really committed and gave up pretty fast. I didn’t want to take new pictures in April because I knew nothing had changed.
I am very very happy with my results. I’m proud of what I accomplished and and excited to see what I can do next. The momentum definitely stayed with me into the following week, and I will be starting that wrap up now. Stay tuned and thanks for stopping by!
