Recently I have had success in feeling more like ME. I was looking at myself in the full length mirror in my undies last night thinking…huh. I’ve come a long way in the past month but I have more to go. I am definitely more confident in my body as it is now than what it was three weeks ago. But now I want to take it to the next level. SO, this morning in the gym I RAN.
I have been pretty good about getting to the gym at least 4-5 times per week and walking at at least 3 mph with an incline of 3. I would occasionally jog. I would focus mostly on time and calories burned. I would make a daily goal depending on how I was feeling that day. And I got a workout. And I saw results as you can see in the picture above.
But now, I am trying to head to the next level. Which means I need to take my work outs to the next level. I told myself that I was going to run for 5 minutes and walk for 2 minutes. Well, 5 minutes came and went so I decided to just keep pushing until 10 minutes. I jogged starting at 4.2 mph. I just kept increasing the mph for that 10 minutes until I was at 5.2 mph. Then I walked at 3 mph for two minutes. I checked my heart rate and I was in the 130 range. WAHOO! Since I realized I could run for 10 minutes in a row I decided to try it again. I ran for 12 minutes this time incrementally getting faster. I walked for 3 minutes and then polished off the endeavor with another 10 minute run with more walking at the end. About 375 burned calories later, I felt AWESOME and TIRED and SWEATY. I don’t usually sweat too much which may reveal my normal desires to stay dry and not sweat too much. :D
As I was deciding whether to lift weights, I noticed that I was sweating through my gray shirt quite noticeably. I decided to peace out. Fact of the day is that NINA can SWEAT! Everybody wants to see the progress from my jiggly after four babies belly to my current state so I will post some photos to inspire others! Getting fit is hard work and a sweaty business!
