Starting A Bonus Streak

Monday, January 28, 2013

Just realized that I didn’t get a chance to blog last week. It’s been All-Hands on Deck for Science Fair around here. But it’s finally over--can you hear the angels singing?

Behold, Audrey, Queen of the Waterwheels.


Audrey and Emily both received Superior medals and Emily’s going on to Regionals!

We decided that Audrey’s project deserved a fitting retirement, so we gave it a proper Viking funeral (minus the longboat) in the firepit in the backyard. It was fun. I wore a Viking beard and played “Taps” on my wazoogle.

Fare the well, oh Science project

The Daily Creativity Journal project has also keeping me pretty busy. Making/doing something every day has been a fun challenge. Here’s the latest--today’s assignment was to use school supplies in different way. So, I made a little diorama, with an anarchist twist. Ha ha

"The Pencils decided once and for all--the scissors had to go." LOL

Speaking of challenges, I’ve decided to start a bonus streak. If you’ve been Sparking along with me for a while, you know that tracking food is my Achilles heel. I stop tracking and get sloppy with portion sizes and staying in calorie range. This really slows my progress and I know it. I totally get the exercise part; it’s become a daily habit. I credit a great deal of the energy I have, to getting that 10 or more minutes in each day. In fact, today was Day 666 of my workout streak. I did an hour on the elliptical and Week 4 Day 2 of my 100 Pushups challenge (another blog). So, yes, I get the fitness part. But I’m giving myself a little kick in the pants on the nutrition part. I’m challenging myself to track all my food for the next 15 weeks. That takes me right up to Mother’s Day. My BFF is holding my feet to the fire. She’s starting a workout streak, so we’re helping each other. 15 weeks. That’s 105 days. I’m planning on making this Day 1 of the Bonus Streak. 104 to go. I’m excited to see what things will look like when I get there! You just can’t do too much streaking, right? I’ll keep you posted.
