Tomorrow will Be a First

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Tomorrow will be the first time ever that I have exercised every day of the week for 60 minutes a day. Truthfully, I didn't know if I could do it. Had it not been for a Spark Challenge where I recieved extra points for doing so...I probably wouldn't have pushed myself to see what I could do. Even though I am tired, I am doing a Happy Dance for learning this about me. Thank You Hogwarts Team!!

Next Week's challenge will be even tougher but I plan to do it. Using the nutrition tracker is out for me since I am gluten free and vegan. Many of the things I eat aren't on the tracker so I will do everything by hand / calculator. I did a trial run today and stayed within my calorie range. The toughest thing for me though will be drinking my water. I used to hate water. Now,
I find that I crave it often. Although there are some days when I get in my 8 glasses per day. many days I do not. I am determined to meet this challenge head on and beat it as well.

This year is my year to get healthy. I am enjoying this and enjoying learning more about me as I go. WooHoo!!!

    I love water, some say it has no taste to it, but I love the taste of water. Or at least here in AR.
    So you just keep up the good work on exercise and it will all eventually fall into place. The exercise will be a healthy permanent habit very soon if not already and the water habit will follow.

    I am so dang proud of you girl.
