So, today started with visiting the snooze alarm again. I had such high hopes of maybe making another day! Oh, well, tomorrow is another chance at not snoozing. I think part of the problem was that I had stayed up so late last night. Well, tonight is another night and tomorrow another morning.
One thing that has improved is my timeliness to work. Usually I'm about 20 minutes late - lately I've been right on time! I don't know if I'll ever be the sort to get there -early- per se; but, this is certainly an improvement!
Speaking of work routines I have to say that I think my taste buds are changing. I'm a Starbucks Junkie. My friends and family know that I love the place. Well, loved. I don't even usually get the over priced crazy specialty drinks, either. No, just a Tall (small) coffee in a grande (medium) cup and I'm happy. Throw in two splendas and a couple ounces of half and half and I'm usually ready for my day,
Not this morning.
This morning I had my coffee and it just didn't taste like what I wanted... Maybe I just got a bad batch. Please don't take my love away from me!
In other happenings I've joined a bunch of challenges. First is the MARCH challenge through the Determination and Accountability group. Points are earned as follows (1 point per letter) M: Motivate 2 members per day; A: Accountability through blogging; R: Rest at least 7 hours; C: Crunches (25); and H: Hydrate with 8 glasses. So far I've got eight points. The Motivation bit was the hardest for me because I hadn't interacted with anyone in the group. I hope I haven't creeped anyone out with my random notes! Oh, and I totally stowed away in a conference room to do my crunches over lunch...
The other challenge I joined was the 28 day bootcamp. I'm super stoked for this one. After 10 minutes I really feel like I can do something. Though, I can't say I'm too pleased with my performance so far. It was disappointing to think I used to be able to do squat thrusts and mountainclimbers and now I'm struggling. Well, in time, I'll get those skills back.
Last topic of tonight is the munchies. The worst sort of munchies I realize are just boredom. UGH. Well, I'm trying to curb them by eating only fruits and vegetables as snacks. Here's hoping it works. Well, that's kind of a lie.. I wanted chocolate like a fiend today. So, I broke into one of my favorite Swedish chocolate bars (I had like twelve once upon a time, let's not speak of the deceased...) and curbed myself at six squares. Sure, it was indulgent, but it tasted so good...
Now for the Best thing of the day and my challenge
The Best thing of Today: Discovering Orange Bell Pepper. OMG, how have I lived my life without it?
Today's Challenge: Staying out in the cold to walk the dog!
