Challenges for Feb 10 to Feb 16

Friday, February 15, 2008

1. Pick one new fruit, vegetable or grain to try this week.

-I will have to carefully consider this, I eat a wide variety of veggies in general already.

2. Take the first step toward getting rid of a habit you've been wanting to break.

-I've set goals to attempt to shift my wake up time by 10 minutes each week until I'm getting enough early enough to accomplish everything before work that I want to...

3. Procrastination anyone? Get started on that project or exercise routine you keep putting off.

-Been putting off getting back into exercise. That will be my goal this week.

4. Do something fun this week. It doesn't have to be anything fancy or take a long time - just go have fun!

-Ooof... this is a strangely tall order. I had fun on Sunday... actually, I had a lot of fun on Sunday, so I'm going to count this as done. :)

January and stuff

Thursday, January 31, 2008

I think I'm receiving some karmic return for making fun of the "Southerners" around these parts. I keep telling people that I'm tough because I'm a Yank and I grew up with lake effect snows. But... sheesh.... it's cold! I take it back. I'm a wuss!!

My winter running has been really so-so. I get to the trail maybe once a week. It's so cold, I just can't make myself go out in it. For some reason, when running flags, the strength training flags.

I've been mostly on target with eating. I'm having a lot of fun with the low meat diet still. I should start posting recipes that I try here or somewhere. The boyfriend is... trying to be supportive of my dietary choices, but most days he just makes it difficult. He's a chef, and so I often consult him when I'm going to try something new. I value his opinion. I've been tweaking my chili recipe so that it's veggie and he keeps telling me add ground pork. Unhelpful!

Oh well. On top of maintaing/appreciating healthy lifestyle changes (on the body side of things), I've also been trying to actually get my budget to BALANCE. It's rough let me tell you. I joined the SparkGuy's Saving Jar Team, but the plan isn't really working with what I have in place. So, I need to re-evaluate.

This is what life is... isn't it? Constantly re-evaluating. Constant flux. Constant change.
