Day 11 (and results of phase 1)

I downloaded this app that is supposed to calculate how many steps you have taken (walking, running, and biking) but I'm not too impressed with it.  Yesterday I walked a couple of miles, but when I looked at the pedometer app it said I walked a little over 9,000 steps and ran for 6 minutes.  Ran for 6 minutes?  I hadn't run for 6 minutes since the ice cream truck driver was teasing me by not stopping for 2 blocks back in 2004.  Today I went for my walk around the site during lunch and for some unknown reason I decided to jog for fifteen minutes.  For the normal, somewhat in-shape person, it was a slow jog, but for me it was like an all-out sprint for a third of a mile.  Once I got back to the office I wanted to see how well I did according to the app.  The freakin'  thing said I ran 1 minute.  Are you kidding me!?  One minute?  I know I didn't break any land speed records but for Pete's sake I was running.  The app did say I passed out for 7 minutes which was true, but I hate this app.

The results of first part of my 24 Day Challenge:
I've lost 8 pounds and 8 inches from my body.  I'm getting more muscle definition, especially in my legs and arms.  This challenge has a snowballs chance in Haiti to show muscle definition in my belly over 24 days but I have lost over an inch there.  I'm looking forward to seeing the results over the next two weeks now that I'm done with the Cleanse Phase and I'm on to the Max Phase of this challenge.

  1. You're a rockstar! Congrats on the pounds and inches. I would run after an ice cream truck too.
