Spring Into Fitness hosted once again by the lovely and patient Jessica. This one ends April 24th, approximately two weeks before I leave for Michigan and turn 36.
As far as exercise goes: not so great. I have taken Betty on a walk twice this week but last week is a blur. This past weekend there wasn't much physical activity going on but it sure was a fun weekend full of going places and doing stuff! I figure I'll try the treadmill thing again soon but probably not this week. Last night I went to Vons and stocked up on salad, fruits and vegetables for work and lower calorie evening snacks. That was pricy but I figure it will keep me from going out to eat and can hopefully help me kick the bad habit of getting sodas when I go out. Water intake has increased to about 64 ounces a day and I need to keep on that.
My goal is to lose something this time. I say 10 pounds but I'll be
happy with anything. Two other goals I had last challenge were to lose
weight to get pregnant (didn't happen) and to lower my cholesterol to avoid going on medication
(still at like 240 I think and that is ATROCIOUS). My Lent goal of
giving up beer and candy is only going so-so. I have not had candy since
the 13th which is pretty great for me. I have lapsed on the drinking
part, though. I figure if I make it Monday through Thursday without drinking:
that's a win. I did that last week and this week is looking good. So here's to a new beginning!
