Weekly Weigh - In....I think I'm in a plateau, no?

Weekly Weigh - In

Lost .6lbs for the week

Total so far:  29.5lbs

Haven't I posted this weight loss like a million + times already??? 

I think I am stuck right now, looking at the log I keep for my weekly weight loss it looks like I've been doing the 1-2lb dance for a month now.  Lose a pound and it miraculously comes back on and no idea why.  GRR! 

My body is really fighting to keep on these next 10lbs that I really want to lose and it's quite annoying. 
 I feel like if I can just get past these next 10lbs that my body will finally give in and realize that I'm not giving up and so it might as well just start letting go of the fat! 

Last night I wanted to get in a 3 miler all by myself.  I know I can do it and I just needed to push through it. 

I kind of planned out my route and figured I would see how far I went once I got to what I thought would be 3 miles.  When I first started out I wasn't sure at all how it would go.  My stomach was a mess and I just didn't feel the best which made me nervous that I wouldn't be able to do it.  I felt sore when I first started out and wasn't sure how it was all going to turn out. 

After mile 1 I had to walk for 10 secs and just give my legs a little bit of a recovery.  They are sore from the 30 day shred...plain and simple.  I started again after just that short break and felt better and my run was now slightly down hill which helped recover some and make it through mile 2. 

Got to what I had hoped to would 3 miles when I reached back to my house but it wasn't!!!!!!! 

KILL ME NOW!!!!!!!  I had just .51 miles to go to get to 3 miles and so I started up again. 

I said to myself  "Dammit you will hit 3 miles!  You can do this!" 

That last .51 of a mile was the most retarded run/route I've ever done.  I might as well just run up and down the sidewalk in front of my house for crying out loud and that would have probably been better.  But it doesn't matter because I did it.  I hit what I wanted to see on my RunKeeper. 

My pace is off I know because I walked some and when I stopped and realized I hadn't gone 3 miles yet.  All that matters is that I did it. 

And I was freaking sore!!!!!!  It felt good to have that run in and I felt good but then my thought was

"Oh my gosh I still have to do the 30DS"  How the heck am I going to be able to do that??? 

So I got Miss H to bed and lunches packed and then at 8:30pm I started the 30 day shred.  I made it through!  I am done with Level 1.  Tonight I will start Level 2 and I'll be honest....I'm afraid how much harder this is going to be.  Jillian please be nice! 

Last night after my work outs I saw this on Facebook and thought how fitting it was for last night. 

I was so frustrated last night with some of the things going on in my personal life and its what made me finish those 3 miles.  It's what made me push through every push up, jumping jack, sit up through the 30DS. 

It was a great workout.  Even if I'm stuck in my weight loss right now...I'm still getting great work outs in and the weight WILL eventually come off!  It has to with how hard I am working my body! 

Here's to working through the plateaus!
