Happy DST, Sparkers!
Monday, March 12, 2012
Unlike a lot of people, I love DST. I love not having the sun in my eyes as I squint to see the stoplights on my morning commute. I love still having 2 hours of daylight left when I get home in the evening. And I love the warmer temperatures. My body even does pretty well on the spring ahead time schedule; this morning at 5 AM I was wide awake. Not out of bed mind you, but awake
Today is the first full day of my 10 Weeks to New Orleans plan. Yesterday I got groceries, but I was lazy and used the drive through pickup. They gave me strawberry greek yogurt instead of plain :( Just when I was trying to get used to plain to cut my sugar intake... /sigh. Oh well. Not the end of the world I guess.
I planned to go running yesterday but my calves were still on fire from my hike on Saturday. According to Spark that burned over 900 calories!!! I have never burned that many calories at once before. I am definitely going hiking again soon. But anyway, I decided to go for a walk instead of a run. Hey, it's something.
So yeah, first full day of my plan and I've had a couple little snags, but I am still very excited! And I have a date with Jillian Michaels tonight, I'm sure she'll be happy to whip me into shape
. I even thought about taking before pics to compare to when we go on our vacay. I know if I stick with doing that No More Trouble Zones video 2x a week I will see results. That video used to kick my @ss regularly... I've never even finished the whole thing. But like a lot of things I did before and then tried again this year, I am hoping to see some improvements due to my increased fitness level. Fingers crossed anyway...
Hope you all are ready to kick some Monday butt!!
Whether you bike, walk, do a video, swim, or just play with your kids for a while, make it a Sparkalicious day!!
