Tues 23rd

Weigh in day.
I thought I would have gained, because its that time of the month and I was sure I read somewhere that you typically gain 5lbs.. but....
196.5.. which means I am down 15.5 lbs

I walked home from work yesterday, which was 4.8k.
I will not be jogging today, its pouring rain. But I will walk to work.

Feeling crap

I did not run today. I was feeling awful. My head was pounding, I felt nautious and I was SO cold. So I took the day off of jogging. I felt a bit better after work, so I did 3 min on eliptical, 2 reps of 25 *sit ups* with the Ab swing
Then I took a 30 min walk with the dog.

It was COLD this morning!!

We were out for our jog by 8:45am and it was cold. It was 3* c when we left.
5 min warm up, 15 min jog program 5 min cool down
45 min power walk with dog
3 min eliptical

I think we are getting a little quicker in our jog. We can usually tell by where we are lap wise. It is exactly 5 min warm up to get to the park where we jog. I was feeling a big laggy this morning, so I don't know if it was the cold  or what. I was fine once we got started, but felt like I was dragging a bit. Hopefully tomorrow is better :)

Waist - 41 1/2  = 41
Hips- 46 1/4  =  47
Thighs- R 26 1/4  = 25 3/4      L- 27  =  26 1/4
Biceps- R- 14  =  13.5    L- 14  =  14
