C25K Week 7 (again)

A week or two before Christmas I was only one workout away from completing C25K.  But with the craziness of the holidays and all, I never finished it, because on the occasions that I did make it to the gym I wasn't able or motivated enough to run the whole 30 minutes, what with all the cookie consumption and weight gain and all.  So at the beginning of the year, I picked up in week 6 and re-started from there.  It took me until earlier this week to work back up to the 25 minutes required at the end of week 6 and now I am in week 7 (out of 9).  With any luck I will finally complete the program sometime in early February.

As usual, I started off the new year all gung-ho and motivated to lose weight but I've only managed to lose 2 pounds (that includes the usual re-gain of a pound or so and subsequent re-loss).  Pretty disappointing, given that January is usually my best month and I'm usually good for 5 or 6 pounds.  Oh well.  This weekend will be full of birthday celebrations (girls' night Saturday night and out with Paul on Sunday.  Actual birthday is Monday) so once that is all behind me I'll hopefully get back on track and have a good February.  Then again, there's the Super Bowl, Valentine's Day, the girls' birthday (cake!) the Oscars...
