House Arrest Update
So, you may have noticed I haven't added to my "Day _ Of House Arrest" posts (today would be day 17 if anyone's wondering), and I want you to know it's not because I forgot about you! I just realized that my life is not THAT interesting, and those posts were going to get tedious fast! Haha. So I stopped the daily posts, but thought I would send you a bulk update! :)
I have been doing really good about sticking with the exercise. Here are my times/distances on the treadmill since my last post on the 26th:
7/27/15: 1.1 miles in 18.67 minutes
7/28/15: 1.1 miles in 17.95 minutes (woot)
08/01/15: 1 mile in 15.67 minutes
08/02/15: 1.1 miles in 20.58 minutes
08/05/15: 1.56 miles in 43 minutes (half on a x3 incline and half on a x5 incline)
For today's run you might notice that it was much slower than the others. There is a reason for this! I did some research and I read that exercising LONGER burns more fat that exercising HARDER. So until I will work myself into running long AND fast, but right now I will now focus on exercising longer.
*Some other updates: I FINALLY have a surgery date. I was worried it wouldn't be until September, which was very upsetting because I can't work until I have it done, and I was worried I would lose my job. But today I confirmed with them that my pre-op procedure will be on 08/10/15 and then the actual surgery will be 08/21/15. My boss has been awesome and supportive, so I'm not so stressed out now!
*Today my friend also asked me to live with her and her fiance to help out with rent and to get me out of my parents house (an issue I've been having for a long time). There are a lot of pros to doing this, but there is still a lot to consider. I told her I definitely have to wait until after the surgery, and that will give me some time to think about it. I may be writing another post or 2 about this!
How have you guys been??
