#30daysofawesome - Day 19

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I did yoga AND my Active 2 game on the PS3 last night.

I'm making spaghetti squash with Italian sausage and peppers for dinner tonight. Nom, nom!

Today is the last day of BLC25. BLC26 will begin in about 8 weeks. My plan is to stay active daily and do my best to eat sensible, whole foods.

#30daysofawesome - Day 18

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Ugh, I ordered DDP Yoga on my phone and wouldn't you know, it wasn't until I received the confirmation email that it had been shipped that I realized that my phone "corrected" my street address. I googled the incorrect address and was grateful it doesn't exist. Then I sent an email to the post office to let them know. That was interesting. I had to get creative with their forms on the website to submit the issue. I hope it gets here okay. So, yeah, that's not so awesome.

I had a good food day until I got home yesterday. I didn't add enough protein and healthy fats into my meals earlier in the day, so by the time I got home, I was over the edge. What was my poison? Fresh baguette with peanut butter and honey. Ugh!


I recovered though. What WAS awesome was seeing a facebook post of my daughter thanking me for her Fitbit with a screen capture of her 15,000 steps. So, I shook it off and did the elliptical for 60 minutes. Now, I know you cannot out exercise a poor diet, but I'm feeling like I'm still in the 80% range of perfection, so yeah, I'm okay.


The 80/20 rule has many applications. Today, I'll leave you with these. Being awesome 80% of the time is emoticon !

    Ugh. I hope your stuff arrives. It's like the time when I ordered a new ipod online... and the shipping label dropped the apartment number! um, kind of important, guys. Thankfully, I got it anyway, but I was lucky because I was home and the mail carrier asked me about it. (and it's personalized, so I know for a fact that it was mine!)

I know people say that you can't exercise away a bad diet, but it's still better to get up and move than to sit on the couch because you messed up your diet. So awesome job!

    I can't wait to hear how DDP Yoga is - my daughter ordered it last Sunday with high hopes of getting her brother to join her in doing the workouts. LOL You are awesome!

I completed my EA Sports workout on the PS3 before going grocery shopping this morning. Now that BLC is winding down, I created a new avatar to remind me that I'm not on vacation between rounds!


Plus, I found new reward stickers in the greeting card section at the store today! Now I need to revise my calendar system to use them!

Paddleboating at Lake Wilderness this afternoon with my daughter. ..awesome!

I also bought DDP Yoga. I know a few of you use it. Please let me know what you think and if you have tips on combining workouts, etc.

Update: Oh, I'm so not feeling awesome! I just took some Day 1 pictures and measurements while I wait for the DVDs to arrive. Oh my word! Instead of asking someone else to take the pictures of me, I took some videos. I am a really big dork! I got the screenshots of the poses I needed and deleted those videos post haste! It was so ridiculous looking! So, the awesome part of it is that I did it. It's the beginning, not the end, no big. Plus, I did give myself a big laugh!

Oh and yes, I did totally forget about the hula hoop idea! It's on my wishlist. Maybe I'll get it for Christmas!
