Stick with it Saturday

I haven't posted a Stick with it Saturday post in a while.  I've still been going to Weight Watchers and I've been wearing my pedometer and I've been running with my Jeff Galloway 5K app.  I've lost 76.4 lbs total now but haven't lost anything new in a couple of weeks. (frustrating but after all of this time I just know that it's OK and things will move again soon.)

I had two big walking days recently.  I took a trip to New York City and had over 10 miles on my pedometer that day and a trip to Boston with just over 9 miles walked.  I love that I am physically able to do these things.  I never could have done it before.  It was so much fun (even if it was exhausting).

I still love running.  I am thinking of signing up for a local race.  I have no intention of "racing" to win but rather just to participate and finish.  The race I chose is for a good cause (a local shelter).  I'm excited thinking about it.

Link up your own diet/exercise post over at Sam's Noggin.

Thanks for the link. How does this one compare to C25K? I don't like the jump to 20 minute run in that one.

I like this app because you take walk breaks. You are never supposed to be huffing and puffing. I usually feel good when I am done and not like I am going to die. :)

It's not quite as user friendly as the other app but now that I've been using it for a while I'm used to it.

You can set your pace and your ratio of walking to running.
