Week 10 of 32point5 plan

Sept 13, 2008 after 4 mile jog!
Wow, week ten already!?

I sadly admit that I did not meet my weight loss goal of losing 1 pound per week. But in consolation, I am down 8.6 pounds which is great considering I ate a big chunk of this on the weekend.

Since the last update at week 5, I have walked/jogged another additional 140 KM (aprox 87 miles). I've also started lifting free weights, skipping rope and punching/kicking a hanging weight bag. In measurement I have not lost any more inches so the total still stands 8 inches lost. It's so scary how I can see a fitter body that's just padded with little pats of fat here and there. The texture of my skin and it's appearance has changed, generally I feel a firmness that was not there before.

I'm still super positive about the 32point5 plan and know it will work out the way I want it to. I'm incredibly happy with how well the blog has come along and with the new people I have met through it.

Thanks to everyone for dropping by and providing words of encouragement. I especially want to thank my Big Man for being the best cheerleader ever! 10 more months to go.......

The weight lifting will help because that builds lean muscle mass and that burns more calories than fat even at a resting heart rate. (oh yes, I know all the info if only could put it into Keep up the great work!!! You rock!!
