This challenge didn't happen well for me this week. I did eat green foods and gave Shamrocks. I started tracking food one day but then got to where I didn't track. I exercised a day or two but not every day. Today I'm just tooooo tired to move!!

How is everyone else doing with this challenge?

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Oh boy, I'm good on 3, 4 and 5 already! I suppose you wouldn't count sauerkraut as green, even though it started out as cabbage... emoticon

On our walks this week, we've finally found some new grass, some rapidly growing buds on the bushes, and a lot of crocus peeking out of the ground! Last weekend, all you could see were tall green leaves, but now, every day there are more flowers!

Will pass on this challenge even though it would be easy. My first husband was an Irish alcoholic and I am a bit soured by the whole business. Don't want to be reminded about all the lies, broken promises, verbal abuse, and how my love was squandered for so long. emoticon
