1. Burn more calories than I eat! Burned 1715, ate 1679.
Considering it was New Year's Day and I was given bakllava (240+ cals) at 2 houses I visited, this was quite an achievement! I asked one family for a knife and cut my bakllava in half. A 3rd family are good friends, so accepted my request to give me the bakllava on a later visit - if there's any left! They offered to give it to me to take home, but I've got enough calorific food people have given me that I don't need to add bakllava to it!
2. Complete JUmpstart Bootcamp.
Have completed the first 2 days. Am thinking of getting the car out to go into town much m ore often. ?Or even, greatly daring, walk the 3 km into town. I gave that up after a dog came at me. I threw the 4 stones I had with me at him. He continued. I swung my shopping bag at him and he bit it! Then his owner belatedly threw a stone at him and called him off.... Having needed stitches after being attacked by a neighbour's Alsatian, I am much more frightened of dogs. Though I now have pepper gas. (The only time I used it, it didn't work, maybe because it was so cold it was frozen. But I now have a brand that should be more reliable...)
