I'm not frustrated! I'm not frustrated! I'm not frustrated! If I keep telling myself that maybe I'll start to believe it.
Week 3 weigh in: -1.0 exactly
It is time to change things up. I eat pretty much the same thing every day. I do pretty much the same workouts each week. In my internet browsing of "plateaus", I've found that a switch up to shock my body is about what I need right now.
So - last Friday I ran... slowly... and for short bursts of time... but I ran. I was terrible at it. I must have looked extremely silly with my short shuffling stride, and my bright red face, but I did it. I was dreading running this morning. I got up and did it and I did better than Friday. I found a 'Couch to 5K' in 30 days program via Pinterest.
I did the 5 min walk/ 2 minute jog on Friday for 30 minutes. Today after I weighed myself (and didn't get frustrated), I decided to go for more. Today I did 5 minute walk/ 3-4 minute jog for 35 minutes. Then I worked out my arms. I hope this little change up does something. I haven't really run since I before I was pregnant with Cohen, so that was 8+ years ago.
Any seasoned runners want to give me some tips? How was your weigh in this week? How do you break through plateaus?
