10 Things

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

My team members have issued a challenge to list 10 things I want to improve on, so here goes!

1. Concentrate on clean eating - get the sugar reduced
2. Develop a bigger cache of meals and snacks - try new recipes
3. Make a concerted effort to include my family in healthier eating - I.e. don't be so quick to make different food for me and the family, and find ways to push more fruits and veg on them!
4. Strength training! (Always on my list!!)
5. 10 weeks until my first 10k, and I want to be able to run it all, so get my training kicked in to high gear
6. speaking of running ... Target a 1/2 marathon for a running goal after the 10k (eek!).
7. Dig deep and find the commitment to stop spinning my wheels and make headway
8. Make a Dr appointment and have blood work done (and finally find out if it was a good call to -gulp- quit taking cholesterol meds)
9. Reduce tv time
10. Try yoga

    You know #3 speaks to me!

I'm still adjusting cholesterol meds. I was hoping my last appt I would magically not need any more, but alas that was not the case. It has been bad for a long time before I finally cave and started taking them.

    Love that you ladies are doing these lists!!! I have to say, the biggest thing that I have done successfully this round is cutting out the sweets. I have been tempted to give in but since I made that commitment to give those up in week 2, it has kept me away. And honestly, most of the time, I have no problem saying "no" to sweets these days.
