Day 4 of 10 Day Challenge

Monday, June 04, 2012

Today was amazing! I left at sunrise to capture some photos of our new Marilyn Monroe statue down town.

She is amazing! I visited many school sites today as part of my union volunteer work. I walked all over the place!

Here are my 5 personal goals for the next 10 days! I am Pleased with my progress at this point!

1. Walk at least 6,000 steps a day and reach for 10,000 /10,056 steps at 7:05 pm ! I reached the stars today!

2. Log all food consumed on the food tracker daily / completed and all within range.. Mostly raw today and very little meat. I am going to try for 2 meatless days a week! Here is my dinner salad.

3. Take all of my meds and record blood pressure readings daily / took meds and BP is 132/86 not too terriffic but I will continue to monitor it! For the next six days I will strictly watch my sodium intake and eat more veggies.

4. Pack my lunch everyday/ or eat at home NO FAST FOOD / completed. To answer Angela's question. Do you eat the same thing everyday? That would get boring. Angela I actually have soup everyday with either a small salad, fresh veggies, 1/2 a sandwich , baked chips,nuts, or a piece of fruit. Even though I do start with soup , I never get bored of the possibilities.

5.Check in with Spark People at least once a day. /Checked in and had a great day scoring over 75 points!

    Bravo I love your salad and all your great choices. It has to show up in your bp readings.

    Okay sorry about the misread about soup every day. I thought you might be the woman of steel too to eat that every day. The variety of the soup, sandwich, fruit and nuts does make for much more fun. I actually have some soup with bow tie in the refrigerator. I'll have to eat it tomorrow in honor of you.

    P.S. We almost came down to your area to see the statue. I believe we have up to a year to still do so. So I know I will be there one of these days.

    That's wonderful!!! I went off the posting my food for a few days, but still tried to record my blood sugars everyday. I had a good one blood sugar today. but have had a few rough days dieting with graduation on Friday, and then again this Friday I have another graduation, in addition to 2 more open houses, June is very busy month, but I will try to get completely back on track. You are an encouragement. emoticon
