Started week 3 of the hundred pushup challenge. Dang! It's still hard!!! Back on track on my food intake. Planning to do as well tomorrow. Need to go pack my lunch (and breakfast!).
My legs are still sore from my 5k trial on Friday. I am getting old! Then, to top it off, my ellipticals (I know they aren't mine, but I pretend they are ) were being used. I ended up doing 30 minutes on the stair climber. Just what my quads needed...more torture!
Tomorrow night is the parent's meeting for softball, right smack dab in the middle of my favorite show (Biggest Loser)! It is the only show that I insist my family let me watch. So, I'll be running home, hurriedly changing into work out clothes, working out, making dinner for the family (grilled chicken salad) and running to the mtg with daughter. THEN, running home to catch the end of the show. Already exhausted just thinking about it! tee hee

My son had is birthday party yesterday. Six boys (five extra) came over for an army man party. The party itself went really well. It was the preparation before and the clean up after that wiped me out. Then DH brought home a margarita mix. He made me a drink, with extra tequila, twice. I'm not a drinker. The combination of me being exhausted and the alcohol made me loopy. I was in bed and asleep by 8:00. No idea when the kids went to bed, if they even did!! LOL! I didn't get up until 9:00 (10:00 with DLS time)! My body was sore from all of the sleeping! I LOVED it!!
I made it through Day 3 with no Diet Pepsi. REALLY wanted one first thing in the morning, but held out. Sunday mornings, DH makes breakfast and we usually have a liter of DP with breakfast. I had him buy me one, but I only drank a third of it. I've had about 2/3 of it by now. Still a lot less than I would have had. The cool thing is that I figured out that I can have lunch at work without the liter of DP. So, my plan is to finishe the DP I have and go back to drinking other things more. I've even already had six glasses of water and am working on 7 and 8!
I mentioned that on Friday I ran a 5k to see if I could and if so, how long it would take. Man, am I paying for that now!! My quads are P.O'd at me!!! Active recovery, right? Oh, and I need to do my progress test today for the pushups. I'll let y'all know how I did!

Day 2 - No diet pepsi. Still no headaches and no real cravings. Weekends are harder all the way around, so we'll see how I do tomorrow.
Week 2, Day 3 - Pushups. Man! Those pushups are hard! And they keep expecting me to do more than I did in week 1! Some people...jeez! My progress test will be tomorrow. My goal is to stay in the same column as I am now. That's a lot of pushups!!
One of the trainers at my gym mentioned a 5k that just happens to be next weekend. I started thinking that maybe I should sign up. Then I wondered if I could run a 5k, no stopping. In my head I can, but in my head I could also do 24 pushups two weeks ago. (My head was WRONG!!!) Tonight, I decided to do a running workout instead of elliptical. The plan was to run for a full 30 minutes or 3.1 miles, whichever came first. At 30 minutes, I had around three quarters to half a mile to go, so I kept going. Ended up doing the 3.1 in 33.5 minutes. Not as good as I wanted, but at least I did it!
Son's birthday party is tomorrow, so I'd better go bake the cake. With him having celiac, the days of buying a cake at the bakery are long gone. *sigh* Oh well, this chocolate cake tastes just like chocolate cake! YUM!

...and no headaches. Odd. I'm not complaining, but I was expecting to need some sort of pain killers to get through the day. I was also expecting stronger cravings than I had. In fact, I had no cravings. I did drink more tea than normal (and more water) so I had caffeine. I'm not silly enough, however, to think that it's smooth sailing from here on out. We'll see how tomorrow goes.

Woke up today sore, but not from my work out. I slept wrong and my neck has a kink in it. Still does! When I got home from work, my daughter reminded me that we had a conference at her school at 6:00 (it was 5:56!). Luckily it was a student-led conference and she's a fairly good student, so no huge issue that we were late. We were there almost an hour, so I started dinner an hour late.
My eyes started crossing half way through making dinner. Still tired now, but not quite ready for bed. I'll go sit on the couch and veg for a little bit. Then I'll be ready for bed!
