Howdy folks! I am in such a good mood, which is probably directly related to the fact that Thursday is my Friday! I love the option of not working on Fridays!! I also love getting my walk on an extra session on Thursdays too. It kinda kicks my butt but it also gives me Fridays to get my legs rested up and I think my legs like that.
So the Hot 100 is going along pretty well for me. I had to amend my bread goal to exclude only white bread and the white bread they dye to look like wheat bread. I really only eat the pitas for bread for the most part. I don't have to worry about Subway now that I know that they have salads. So in its amended form, I am good on the bread goal! I plan on working on the sub 40 minute 5k this weekend by trying to get below 45 minutes on saturday, so more on that one next week. I have successfully been able to add vegetables to my diet, with a minimum of 4 servings a day. And to round out the list, I don't weigh until next Friday, so I can't report on the get to 240 goal until then. I feel thinner I know that!
I am going to try a little gimmick here and see if it sticks. I thought about putting it out there each Thursday that I ask my bloggy buddies to create a list that includes three items. I am not sure if I want to keep the criteria the same or change it up every week. I will work on that, but for this week, here is your challenge folks.
Leave in my comments a list of 3 things that you can do now that you couldn't do before your started on this journey of ours. It don't have to be a huge, oh wow kind of thing. Maybe you couldn't go 10 minutes without somehow thinking about food before. I couldn't. So if you can now, throw that on the list! Maybe you couldn't squat down and get up without putting your hand on something to help you up, I couldn't! Now I can. Maybe you always thought that personal or "me" time only involved being sedentary and not activity. I did! Now I consider my walk around Wal Mart and the block my me time. I get so much thinking and rah rah'ing done So there is my three things for this Thursday. Tell me yours!!
Oh and a couple of side notes here. First, I did get my jump rope workout in and I have determined I have muscles just below my neck that I was unaware of that just keep on hurting from jumping rope! And as far as doing the comparison pics, I honestly have not been able to find a shirt that doesn't poof out at the bottom and make me look fatter than I really am and I will not post a shirt off pick yet!! I need to buy some more shirts apparently!
