It's the third day of our "Walk of Fame" weekend challenge, and I'm looking at full points for the challenge!
Today, what helped was, again, my husband. That man is a true Energizer bunny! I don't know anyone who can work the hours he does, with such intensity and passion. Definitely, I am NOT like that at ALL -- I would much rather be on the couch with a good book, especially on a chilly, gray day like today. But, because he keeps going, I feel compelled to, as well. And so it is that, instead of relaxing all day with that good book and ignoring the work that needs to be done, I emptied boxes and filled bags with packing paper and organized cupboards and planned the week's menus and made my grocery list and... oh, shoot... never did get to the vacuuming!
As the day wore on, my back got more and more achey -- the last thing I felt like doing was taking a walk. But, DH insisted, and so we took a 40-minute walk with the dogs. My back still aches, but I know the walk was good for me.
What hindered me today was, again, my husband! I had a healthy dinner planned, but he announced that Pizza Hut was having a $10 box special and we "had" to take advantage of it. I figured one slice of pepperoni pizza wouldn't kill me... but, he came home with a pan pizza with pepperoni AND bacon, as well as breadsticks and cinnamon sticks. Really? REALLY??
Fortunately, I was prepared with a yummy Romaine and spinach salad. I did have one slice of the pizza, and quickly wished I hadn't -- it was heavy and greasy and, frankly, gross! I don't know why I keep eating things that I know won't taste as good as I remember them tasting... you think I'd learn.
Tomorrow is the last day of the challenge. I'm sure there will be things to hinder me, but there will also be things -- or people (yes, I'm looking at YOU!) -- to help me. One day at a time, one baby step at a time, I'll meet my goal. And you'll meet yours, too. Together, we can do it!
