I forgot that Couch to 5k, Week 5 was such a bitch!!! Day 1, three five-minute runs, good. Day 2, two eight-minute runs, check! Day 3, one twenty-minute run?!? I don't think so! I ran for ten, walked for four, then ran for six. I was originally thinking I would just stick to Day 3 for my next few runs until I could get to twenty minutes, but then I looked at Week 6 and it makes way more sense to carry on as normal. Day 1 is broken up again into 5-8-5 minutes so I think I'm just going to continue as normal without repeating the day.
I haven't been very disciplined at staying under 1700 calories. I don't necessarily go very far over that amount but I must start to make a better effort at staying under. I did lose one pound since last month so I am pleased, but I feel I could get closer to that 160 mark quicker if I can just stick closer to that goal. My Fitbit shows that I burn more calories then I take in on most days but I would prefer to see a larger deficit.
I would also like to make a bigger effort to reduce my grain intake, but that's a hard one for me. I admit it, I love my bread. I just need to get more on top of having other options easily available to me.
