30 Miles in 30 Days - April Week 3

Short & Sweet today because I am a busy bee! I struggled a little bit this week with my cravings...but I have managed to keep it mostly in check. And my work schedule has been so busy that I haven't had much time to get in miles. I am absolutely dedicated to running BOTH Saturday & Sunday to get ahead of the game. Thanks to my wonderful friend Nikki (cute name, right?) who I can text a moment's notice and she offers me encouragement constantly. She even text me this morning to make sure my booty was in the gym at 530! She's awesome!

Don't forget to show some love to the sweet Ms. Sarah who created this super cute button for the link up!
So button up and let's keep each other motivated!

If you want to stay connected with me during the week, I am posting some updates via Twitter & Instagram {nikkib918} too. #30milesin30days Manda also posts her updates and she is a constant source of support for me! Now Kelly & Lins are also promoting this link up along with their own - Fitness Fridays! Check it out and link up your 30 Miles story for more people to get inspired by. I'm so glad to have all these ladies, plus the rest of you linking up on board!! THANK YOU!
Updates on This Week's Progress:
  • I started DietBet yesterday so it's game ON for the next 28 days. I also got a new scale - a digital one because I was still using the dial kind. So my weight is a little different (about 3 lbs more on the new digital scale vs. the old one). Kinda sucks! 
  • My Fitness Pal & My Polar FT4 HRM are GREAT motivational tools for me! If you want to friend me on MFP my username is {nikkibradley918}.
  • Pinterest has been a great source to find some at-home 30 min or less circuit workouts. I am one of those cheezy people who gets fired up over motivational quotes too and you can always find some good ones on there!
My total miles for Week 2:
Friday 4/12
~1 mile warm up on stationary bike 16.4 rpm avg
~.5 mile walking cool down treadmill 3.4 mph avg pace
 = 1.5 miles total

Sunday 4/14
~1 mile warm up stationary bike
~1 mile jog treadmill 5.9 mph avg pace
= 2 miles total

Thursday 4/18
~1.5 miles stationary bike warm up avg pace 14.5 mph
= 1.5 miles total

Total Miles for Challenge: 18 miles!
Only 12 more to go in 12 days!
What were your challenges this week?

You are doing so good!!

And I'm totally rocking an old dial scale because I'm worried about my weight being higher on a digital one:)

Heather said...

Good job! I love using Pinterest for fitness motivation and videos too - great resource!

You're doing great girl!!!

Amanda aka Manda said...

You're doing awesome lady! Thanks for all the encouragement this week. I use a digital scale, but I'd prefer a dial scale bc there is always a 3-5 lbs difference between the two. I trust the dial scales and old school doctor scales more than the digital ones.

You are killing it!!!

Wine and Summer said...

You're doing awesome!!

I know the feeling with the scale! I was convinced my roommates was wrong for the longest time!

Alisa Marie said...

You are doing amazing! I've fallen off the bandwagon a little, so I haven't been posting anything. Went to the gym twice this week and I'm going tonight. Mostly I've just been doing classes and not running, but I need to get back into it! I knew after March I would start slacking.... Scheesch!!!

Jordan said...

You are killing it! I'm so glad you started this because it helps motivate me to keep on truckin. I'm confident we can all hit the 30 if we stay on track! Keep it up girl! #likeaboss

Faith said...

You are doing excellent!!!

I can never go back to a dial scale after getting a digital one.

I started going to the gym in the mornings again. I love it so much more than going after work :)

Kelly said...

Great job, girl! Keep up the good work, you will be at 30 before you know it.

Amy Shaughnessy said...

Oh man. Don't even get me started on the cravings. I am eating like a pregnant woman and I'm not pregnant! And I skipped my jazzercise (yes I do jazzercise) class on Monday...
