Weigh in Wednesday ::: Hope

Where were we?
Oh yes, I had just lost 4.5 lbs. and was feeling great.
Well, I'm feeling the exact same today that I was last week.
Probably because I weigh the same.
Yup. No loss, but no gain either.
Carl has been out of town since Sunday so working out has been tough.
I did get to the gym a few times this week and I even ran.
Yes. I ran 2 miles at 2 different times this week.
What I haven't told you {probably because then it will make it real} is that I am signing up for my first 5K at the end of June.
Now let me just say that I AM NOT A RUNNER!
I have actually hated to run ever since...well, forever.
But I started to run on the treadmill one night and thought
"I'm not dying right now. Let me see how long I can do this for."
So, I'm a bit nervous about actually running outside and in front of other people, but I am also proud of myself for trying something new.
It's been awhile since I tried something new :)
I have also been upping my exercises.
In case the squat challenge wasn't enough,
I decided to throw in a circuit exercise too.
Here it is:
Do this simple (yet effective!!) circuit three times through everyday for one week. 
Want more? Increase your reps or repeat 5 times throughout the day.
 
I haven't done my measurements lately,
but I will definitely be doing those soon.
I am already having to wear a belt to hold up my {2 sizes smaller} jeans.
Here's to next week being another BIG week :)

Way to go! This is real. I am having a very good week myself. Been to the gym 3X this week. I think of you as I do my weights and leg machines and power walking. Down a couple of pounds. Gotta keep going. Thank you!
Love you.
