BRH: Week 4 Session 2

Run 2 minutes. Walk 2 minutes. Repeat 7 times.

Time: 28:00
Distance: 2.56 miles

This is what it looked like outside this morning. 28 degrees (wind chill was 21) with light snow. I was surprised that I walked down the stairs with no discomfort despite that terrible workout last night.

So I decided to go for it. Thanks to my lovely sister I now have a great Champion running jacket from Target. Pretty much everything from the waist up is Champion gear. Love that stuff! Anyway.....The run felt great! No pain! Ok, ok, a little twinge here and there, but overall it was great. I concentrated on keeping good form. I even managed a good speed. Forgot to check my watch a few times because I was so in the zone that I fudged my run 2/walk 2 program. Oops!

Glad I went out and did it.

Remember that scale I mentioned in the last post? Yea, it loved me today. Lost 2 lbs this week and 8 lbs since the beginning of January! I made my 5% goal! To celebrate I'm taking myself shopping in March. I have 4 weddings to go to in the next 4 months and will be in need of a new dress. WW really works if you do it right :) Only 2 lbs to go before I've lost 10 lbs total. No fudging on points this week. I want another sticker next Saturday!


  1. Way to go Jamie! I'm sitting on my couch looking out at the snow knowing I should get dressed and go for a run. But I'm being a baby about it! I think you just motivated me to get off my butt though. So thank you!

    Oh and YAY for no pain! I know that feeling. It's so nice to be pain free! Also way to go on the weight loss!

  2. Wow, great job on the weight loss!

    And doesn't it feel GREAT to finish a run when you really didn't feel like doing it? Nice job.

    Cute outfit too!

  3. I had no idea you had a blog!! And awesome job with the running- I can't wait to get back into that... too bad we don't live closer!

  4. I saw your picture on a comment on Lisa's blog and had to come check this out. Must be from the points comments you are doing WW. Good luck. I think WW makes a lot of sense. It is how I lost my weight.
