May 29 - Jun 3

Monday - 5:45 am - a 15 min jog with 4 sprints on the treadmill, followed by 10 min of planks, then an hour walk with a lovely neighbor Lisa E. Had my final weigh in for the 8 week health challenge with my friends. 133.4 is my new low, woot! I lost 8.38% of my bodyweight over the past 2 months. I'm planning to continue eating this way and weighing in on Mondays. Might start another group or might do it on my own... I think it would be better for me to be accountable to others though. It was a beautiful morning, so excited for summer mornings! I love getting up and out early and watching the sun rise.
Tuesday - upper body workout in the basement for shoulders, chest, biceps, and then did 120 walking lunges.
Wednesday - walk outside for 30 minutes
Thursday - 20 minute 2 mile jog, I jogged the whole time! Didn't stop to walk, go me! Stretched for 20 minutes.
Friday - No school for the kids today, I went on a nice morning walk with friends. 60 minutes, beautiful morning.
Saturday - quick 2 mile run tonight with Mel and Hyrum. They took a short cut and met me near the end so they wouldn't slow me down. I want to time myself and see if I can get really fast and win the fun run this year! Going to take my first test run on the route on Monday morning and then see if I improve my time over the month of June.

May 21 - 27

Monday - treadmill jog with 4 sprints, 30 minutes, new low with weight 134.8
Tuesday - 30 min jog outside
Wednesday - 30 minute walk
Thursday - 30 minute walk, listened to this version of Master the Tempest is Raging over and over again. I could only do the first two verses and chorus, couldn't listen tot he 3rd verse yet cause we're not there yet (storm is not over, nor do I know when or how it will end)... I'm trying to not feel like we're about to perish (all mostly regarding MM business)
Friday - don't have the energy/drive to jog right now, just a 45 minute walk again this morning while listening to A High Priest of Good Things to Come, 15 min stretching
Saturday - 2 mile evening jog with Melodie. Her first time going for a run in a while, and so Mel had to stop and walk quite a few times. I did planks while she caught her breath - 3 times a center plank for 1 min with hand planks on each side for 30-40 seconds each. Good workout! Then we stretched for 30 min after we got home.

May 8 - 13

Monday -  I did a real no food fast all day yesterday and did a treadmill run to finish it off before eating anything. Reached a new low this morning 137.8 and lost almost 2 lbs this past week, total weight loss is 5.36%. Did four 1 min sprints on the treadmill, hate them! then finished jogging walking for a total time of 30 min cardio, then 30 minutes of stretching.
Tuesday - 40 minute walk outside as I listened to Elder Holland. Cried a few times. Our struggle with Corey getting his business of the ground feels like it will never end. Ugh, this personal growth is a big pain! Plant fast today.
Wednesday - with Abi: 12 min planks, one wheel, 50 min stretching with a "how to do the splits "YouTube" video
Thursday - 40 min jog/walk, one pull up
Friday - 25 min jog at 8 pm
Saturday - 50 minute hike with Abi to the Lower Bell Canyon reservoir, followed by a one minute sprint around the block, time 2:19 (I hate them sooo much)
