Hills and Valleys
Wednesday, January 09, 2013
Like most long term projects, there are hills and valleys in my health and fitness journey. I had lost a bit prior to Christmas and despite the impending holiday, was able to focus and concentrate on my fitness and right foods. I am now experiencing a lack of focus. I haven't eaten all my calories today, but might before the day is done. I didn't eat many veggies though. I have had trouble making myself drink my water too. I haven't been getting in too many fitness minutes either. I AM doing a few, just not a big block like I was.
A lot of participation is happening on the 13-13-13 challenge and that's great. There are more than 400 people who say they are in the challenge. Don't think all really are, but a few have used the mailing list from email I sent to spam everyone and a few participants are irritated. I tell them just to delete the emails, block the senders if they want, or reset their account so they don't get notices of the emails while at work. I sent everyone a note asking them never to send email to the group, especially updates and encouragement--do it on the team page, but a few have still persisted. I guess since the team is composed of people aged 50+, there might be some that are not computer savvy. Maybe they have no experience with challenges and think email is the way to communicate. I just hope it subsides before people get all fired up about it.
ANYWAY, I have been enjoying fixing treats from Hungry Girl cookbook. I think my real hobby is cooking. Today I made everyone an after-school treat of individual pizzas. The crust is a low carb/high fiber tortilla. I used leftover canned spaghetti sauce (from the lasagna yesterday), and leftover mozzarella cheese. The pizzas were met with positive feedback. I will try other variations in time. The cookbook has quite a few variations to peruse.
Keep on sparking, y'all!
