Well, I completed my first C25K run on the treadmill, today. I tried using my Moov app, and one of the running training modules. However, it started the run intervals with 2 minute runs, and 30 second walk intervals. And it didn’t have a warm up period, so it was a bit of a shock to my body.
I’ve decided to go back to the tried and true C25K app. It was still difficult, especially since I was on the treadmill. I really dislike that machine, but it comes in handy when trying to get a run in, and it’s dark and cold outside.
So as I’m wrapping up my weekly layout in my bullet journal for this past week, I was happy to see that I worked out four days!! Also, my bullet journal has evolved into a fitness journal. But that’s what is working for me now. It’s also relaxing to sit and create a new layout every week. They are getting better and better.
I started intermittent fasting, last week. I’m following the 8/16 format. My feeding window starts at 12 pm, and ends at 8 pm. I’m trying to keep my caloric intake at 1850,which i got from the My Fitness Pal app. I’ll lower it as I go along.
I was happily surprised to find that I’ve lost five pounds in a little over two weeks. So, I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing. I’m not going to focus on how far I have to go. I’m going to just focus on the present, and handle what I need to do to get to where I want to be fitness-wise.
This bullet Journaling thing has really helped keep me on point. I thought I’d share my layout for this week.
The left page is for tracking any appointments, or tasks that I need to do. The page on the right helps me track my meals, and calorie intake. Yes, I know it’s redundant, since I’m using MFP to track my calories, but writing it down makes it more…real, I suppose. Then I have my water tracker, and then things I need to do every day, like pray, daily gratitude, daily Journaling, my supplements, exercise, etc.
So that’s it for this week. I plan to post twice a week. Hey!! I can add that to my journal!!
