I feel like blogging, although I don't really have anything in particular to say. I suppose I can start by making some observations and posting my latest health/fitness endeavors.
Today was unseasonably warm. I'm worried this summer will be ridiculously hot. I love winter and I missed it this year (it was too warm to be considered winter!). My fiance and I are looking for a place to move into and I think I have a new appreciation for air conditioning as a requirement.
I joined the "official tame your sweet tooth" challenge on SparkPeople. I'm kind of doubting I'll ever OFFICIALLY TAME my sweet tooth, but it is a problem I want to address. If sweets are available, I eat them. And I can't stop at just a small portion either. I am out of control. I need simply NOT to have them around at ALL. Unfortunately, I'm living in my fiance's parents' house, and sometimes his mom bakes cookies, pies, or brings home ice cream and loads of chocolate. It's in the house, therefore I eat it! And some kind of sweet is ALWAYS in the house.
I'm figuring out my commute to and from my new job. It looks like it'll involve a morning and evening 15-minute walk, which is good in some respects (built-in exercise!) and bad in others (like it takes 15 minutes to walk to work from my car, and if I'm late I can't cut out the walk, I'm just late!).
Other than that, I am trying to keep up a regular work-out routine involving sit-ups, push-ups, and the plank. It's not that regular yet, but I've done it here and there.
Mmm, something smells good downstairs! If only I could resist...
