Spring in 2 Action Week 2 update

Well, it’s been two weeks since I started the “Spring in 2 action Challenge” over at Shrinking jeans and this week was much tougher than the first.

I had some mental issues (read about them Here) and they really took a toll on my self-esteem. However, I still managed to get to the gym most days this week and have been having a great time on the Arc-Trainer. I bumped up to 40 minutes at a time today and burned 573 calories on that alone!!

I got a chance to run a bit a work (more like chase someone) and it really surprised me how far I was able to go and how long I was able to keep up just compared to a month or so ago. Working the cardio on the arc trainer and then putting the treadmill on an incline for 30 minutes at a 3.0 speed really has made a huge difference. I can’t wait until the snow is off the trails here so that I can practice my running outside for my 5k in May.

Overall though, I’m down 5 pounds in two weeks and have upped my push ups to 22 at a time (not where I wanted to be , but I’m happy )

Here’s to a great week..and to an even better one next week!!
