Well, I was right on a couple of counts...
1 - I was not able to lose as much this week as I did last week
2 - It was slightly harder to stay motivated in the 2nd week v. the 1st week.
Those things said, I'm still plugging away! Chipping away at the C25K program - I'm now in Week 4 and it's kicking my ass - in a good way. It's scary how much training you lose when you stop. When I was hitting the gym regularly in August and September I was able to do 5-8 minute runs with only slight rests in between. It sucks starting from scratch - but I know it's the right AND safe way to do it. I just wish I could jump to the point where I can do 5K runs on a regular basis again.
The eating went well this week as well. Strayed from the NutriSystem diet a few times this week, but had salads when I was out - so stayed smart!
The hardest thing so far? It'd have to be a tie between wanting to nap instead of getting on the treadmill, and drinking more martinis - I do miss them (but I let myself have 1 or 2 a week)
Still pleasantly plump, but celebrating my total 8 pounds loss. :-)
