Snow, sickness, and last day of 5% challenge
Friday, April 19, 2013
It is snowing here again today! Can you believe it?! April 19 and we just got another 3 or so inches. Unbelievable. At this rate, the garden will never happen. But now now... have hope. Summer has to come, doesn't it???
Well, I think I might hit my 5% challenge goal... but unfortunately not the way I wanted to. Yesterday I was sick with a stomach bug--quite literally could only handle 1 piece of toast and a handful of Gatorade ice cubes all day. I didn't get to log in at all. Biggest bummer was that I was in a mini challenge where you had to log in each day by midnight with fitness minutes, even if it was 0. Missing once was cause for elimination. Well, 2 days left of the 8 week challenge, and I was eliminated. Such a bummer! Oh well... so it is. I can be thankful that the stomach bug only gave me 1 day of feeling yucky and 1 day of pure misery.
I am SO thankful for all the good I have gotten out of this 8 week challenge. I have met some great new SparkFriends, found my workout groove, and stayed on task. Each day was a new day, with new challenges (like running a 10k in 30 degree weather???), and more to learn about myself. I really enjoyed the camaraderie of the Teddybears.
So, here's to spring actually coming, a happy last day of the challenge, and health! Have a great weekend!
