    Ok, so here is my update so far. I will finish week 4 today and man this is getting harder every day it seems. I say that it is getting harder, but I am quite obviously getting stonger. Every run for the last week I have bested myself, by coming out with my best pace and distance after every single run! It surprises me every time because I feel like I'm dying, but I must be doing something right!


    @Tlseege I can totally see why weeks 4 and 5 are the quitting weeks, I don't know that I would be able to continue without the support of my husband. He is very motivational, which is something that kind of surprised me. But he refuses to quit, and I refuse to quit so I guess I will just keep running! lol


    Sadly, I'm not losing any weight on this journey which is upsetting and I haven't quite figured it out. I know that my body is going through a lot of changes (I've stopped taking bc) and that is the only thing I can really attribute to me not being able to lose weight. Well, I will update again later!

    Great job!!!!  Keep up the good work, you're doing great!


    it's so awesome that your fiance is so supportive and you have an end goal already paid for to look forward to.  Now just keep running! :)

    As for weight loss... this isn't the program to lose weight with.  You're building a lot of muscles and you won't lose weight.  If in the end you can go for 3 mile runs 3 times a week, then perhaps you will. However you will not (typically) lose weight during the training.

      Thanks tlseege!


      Ok, time for my weekly update! I finish week 5 tomorrow, which means..... I have the 20min run tomorrow! :( Not at all looking forward to it, so I'm not going for time or distance just going for completion, lol! As long as I can finish it, I will be happy with that. I've been wanting to supplement the running with something else, so I started the shrinkingjeans.net Oh My Thighs! workout along with this. It is pretty simple, but I can definitely feel it.


      On top of all that, I've started to take weekly measurements. I figure that if I can't find motivation in losing weight, maybe I can find it in seeing my measurements deacrease. It's just killing me because I've been sooo good at my diet, and not cheating but I'm not seeing results. My husband on the other hand cheats all the time and is down 30 lbs.

        Ok, so due to some INSANE weather where I live we haven't been able to start week 6.... until tonight :) Last week we ended up re-running week 5 because we were falling behind in our schedule and then Tuesday this week we re-ran Week 5 Day 3, so now we will officially begin Week 6. Also, I have officially signed up for a 5k exactly one month from today! I'm super nervous to be commited to something, but super excited at the same time :) Wish me luck!

            I'm planning on doing this now that the weather is better, in fact all the outdoor exercise I can get, the better!!
