The first 4 minute walk was fine, but when I started into the jog, I was horrified. I've never been a fast runner, but this 'jog' I was attempting was even slower than my regular walking speed! I'm so heavy that it took a lot of effort to get my feet up off the ground, but I kept at it, no matter that any tortoise could have easily sped by me.
I did this workout on my own street which has little to no traffic, but has a small incline in one spot, then dead ends going down a hill. I had to go to the end of the road and back a couple of times to complete the route , but I made it work. Once I go to the longer workouts, I'll have to go elsewhere to do it.
Since I started this later in the week, I'm not sure I'll get all three workouts in or not. Maybe I'll adjust the starting point of the week to accommodate that.
Once again I did well with food, not eating any junk at all, and made reasonably good choices for meals and snacks. I drank my 8 cups of water, stayed within both my calorie and carb limit, and didn't feel cheated at all. The scale told me this morning that I'd lost another 1/2 lb. I feel great.
Upcoming blog posts will touch on diabetic neuropathy, leptin, issues with cholesterol medications, and a host of other things that concern me. I hope you'll stick around.
