Progress!

I'm not quite sure what I've done differently this week but I did my measurements earlier this week and I lost quite a bit!

The only change I can really think of is instead of a banana with almond butter for my morning snack, the last two days I had plain Greek yogurt with blueberries or granola.

The first measurements are from April 23 and the second is from May 9.

chest - 33 1/4"      33 1/4"
waist - 29 7/8"      28 1/2"
belly -  33 1/4"      33 1/2"    (below belly button)
hips -   37"            36 1/2"  
thigh -  22"            22"

Wednesday I took a rest day because I wasn't feeling good - light headed and my legs felt really weak. I ate more than I usually do yesterday too but it was all healthy stuff. I did have a bowl of cereal for dinner but I had Whole Grain Cheerios. Could have been worse!

This weekend was a bit of a write off once again but it wasn't really unhealthy food - just a lot. Went to a bud, spud, and steak on Friday night (accompanied with 2 beers), and last night was turkey dinner for Mother's Day.

I tried jogging for the second time today. The first time was awful - I had no idea what I was doing. This time I did some research before heading out and I'm following the walk/run method. This week I walk for 6 minutes and run for 1. Do this for 3 rounds and you do this 3 times this week. Next week is walk for 5 and run for 2, and so on.

I'm surprised I don't feel more pain in my shin right now because during my run I could feel it getting tight on my right leg. Although tomorrow could be another story! haha. The difference this time is I'm going more for jogging - nice and light, whereas before I was trying to actually run and go fast. I also bought new shoes last week to start running. They were $100 off for Saucony's.

How was your weekend? Did you try something new?
