Find An Exercise Routine That Works #Medifast Week 5

If you’re a regular reader, then you know I am using Medifast to reach my 2015 health goals. I started on January 5th and this morning weighed in for my final day of week 5. I am down 13.6 pounds in 5 short weeks! But for me, it’s not just about the weight loss, it’s about being healthy again. I feel energized and I’m able to keep up with my very active 6 year old son! An added bonus is fitting back into my smaller clothes.

We go to the park regularly now and play sports together and I run laps around the track. While this is NOT my ideal running situation (I love running through neighborhoods and along the lakes near my home), it is working! He brings sporting equipment, his bike, remote control cars, sidewalk chalk, etc. to keep him occupied as I run laps. He knows this is our normal routine and looks forward to it! This week, I found my pace becoming faster and my endurance kicking up!

I logged a lot of miles last week (more than previous weeks) but the scale didn’t move. I have either hit a plateau or I’m still experiencing inflamed muscles and fluid retention (this was explained in my week 4 update). BUT, the inches are melting off so I am going to continue doing what I’m doing!
