Thank God it's Friday! It has been a fantastic week for me. Hopefully, all of my hard work will show on the scale tomorrow. Even if it doesn't, I feel FANTASTIC so I guess that is all that really matters!
My accomplishments this week:
I stayed off the scale!
That is AMAZING for me! Yay!
I'm working towards starting the C25K program and week 1 begins with 5 min warm-up, 1 1/2 min running, 2 min walking (repeat until the 25 min mark), 5 min cool down. I've been working up to this because just 2 weeks ago I couldn't run for 30 seconds straight. So, two weeks ago I did 30 sec running, 2 walking (repeat) for 30 minutes. Last week I did 60 sec running, 2 min walking (repeat) for 30 min. I decided to do that this week as well because I really didn't feel I was ready for 90 sec running, 2 min walking....until this morning. I actually did it! I can't believe it! I'm so excited about that! So, next week I will begin the actual program. You're supposed to increase the time you run and decrease the time you walk each week as the program progresses. I am NOT trying to kill myself so I've given myself permission to do each week twice (only if I need to). I can't tell you how thrilled I am that I actually did it today. I'll probably be pretty sore tomorrow but who cares!?!?
I stayed within my calorie range every day this week.
I'm wearing my son's Raven's jersey today for Purple Friday at work. I just dribbled grapefruit juice down the front of it. He's going to smell like a grapefruit on Sunday!
I have to make a purse this weekend. I've had this darned design swimming around in my head for weeks now, it is time to pull it out like Dumbledore pulled his memories out of his head and put them in the Pensieve.
I really, really need to organize my bedroom this weekend. I mean, I REALLY need to organize my bedroom this weekend.
First I have to clean the house. Saturday is deep-clean day.
When am I going to make that darned purse?
When am I going to organize my room?
If that is all I have to worry about, I guess I'm doing quite well!
I guess I have to work at some point today. 5 o'clock can't come fast enough. I'm heading to the Good Will store tonight to see if I can find any hidden gems to transform into purses, art work, or home decor. As if I need more to do.
Happy Sparking my sparkly friends!
