Legs are a hurtin'!

My legs H-U-R-T!  Starting this past Monday I started walking in the mornings and the evenings.  So I have been walking roughly 4 miles a day.  I through in a jog here and there for as long as I can.  My shins hurt.  Everything else is sore but my shins hurt...did I mention my shins effing hurt. 

I am hoping this helps boost my weight loss this week.  I plan on walking tonight and tomorrow morning.  I may have to go to the gym tomorrow evening because the kids are coming home from their dad's tomorrow night so I may not have time.  I am trying to figure out a plan to keep this up as much as possible but I am not sure how yet.  The kids are on spring break and with their dad so it is easy to get all of this walking in.  When they come home and I have to get them to school I get home to late to walk.  I have to start getting ready for work.  Then in the evenings I guess I can walk by myself and leave the kids with hubby but I feel a little bad doing that because he enjoys walking too.  I could always take them with us but my daughter can't keep up and it doesn't feel like a work out when I have to keep stopping for her or walk her speed.  Always a hurdle. 

Hope everyone is doing awesome.

Walking to lose?

I weighed in Saturday losing 2 lbs.  I am down 48 pounds.  I rode my exercise bike for 30 minutes Monday-Friday and did the 30 day shred 3 days last week.  I counted my calories and stayed around or under 1600 calories every day.  And I still only lost 2 pounds.  I know 2 pounds is good but I thought I did well enough to lose more than that. 

I'm starting a new goal today. Even though I have not been meeting my goals I set for myself I am gonna try it again.  I need to lose 22 pounds in 8 to 9 weeks.  That will being me to 70 pounds lost by the time we will be leaving on our Disney World vacation in June.  I really hope I can do it!

This week I am going to change up my exercises.  Maybe that exercise bike is just not cutting it for my body.  I am going to walk.  Yes walk.  The weather is nice, my kids are visiting their dad until Thursday evening so I have time to get in a lot of walking.  My plan is to walk in the mornings before work and in the evenings after dinner with my hubby.  I started off this morning with my walk.  Part of my path is a track I get to at a nearby park.  I walk around that track twice before I go on.  This morning I ran twice for about 2 min intervals.  I know it's not much yet but I will work at it and it is more than I could do last year at this time.  I would run more intervals but I know no one is watching me at the track so I feel more comfortable.  I haven't brought myself to running where passing cars could see me.  I def feel it in my legs.  I know I have done something when I am sore.  I look forward for another walk with my husband tonight. 

Tonight is the Championship game in college basketball....I'm a Kentucky girl soo Go Cats!!
