Today is the first day of our new week. Well.....it's not going so great. I was up most of the night with my dog. She was throwing up and whining alot. I had to run to the store to pick up some medicine. So this morning I feel like I'm running just to get everything done that needs to be done today. I pray that I eventually catch up and get some fitness in today.
I was amazed with my results from last week. I was beginning to wonder if my heart monitor is correct in how high my heart rate would get during my exercises, or if my calculations for how many calories burned were correct. Well, I'm happy to say that it is correct. Here are my new measurements:
Weight: 142.5, a weight lost of 3 lbs for a total of 15 pts.
Inches lost: bust -.5", waist -.5", right arm - .5", right thigh - .5, left thigh - .5" for a total of 2.5" inches lost, which earned me 5 pts.
Grand total pts. for last week 20 pts. Yay!!!
I thinks its funny that my right arm is now the same size as my left arm but my right thigh is still bigger than my left thigh. Maybe as I go on, my right thigh will even out.
Praise the Lord that I was able to stick to my fitness goals last week of exercising 6 days a week. I do 3 days of No More Trouble Zones and 3 days of walking 5 miles. Although I was able to walk 7 miles yesterday. Did you know that briskly walking 7 miles at an average heart rate of 145 in 110 minutes will burn over 1,000 calories? It's so exciting and so motivating. I praise the Lord for it all.
We'll see how this week goes. It's going to be a challenge but I'm determined to keep springing.
