There might be some of you who are a little tired of my food and exercise posts. There may be some of you who don't want to hear it anymore. To those people, I apologize sincerely right now. Because it isn't going to stop. I've got this fire of motivation and I don't want it to go away. I want to nurture it and feed it and help it grow stronger. I want to be healthy, I want to be fit. Here are some of the crazy things I've done in the past few days... things that are totally out of character for me, things I want to keep doing. 1. Jeff picked up the Wii Just Dance game. Total props to Shell at Things I Can't Say for pushing and pushing this game. It was on sale at Target. Had to get it. Fired it up last night. Did 30 minutes, 21 songs on short versions (repeated a few). Had FUN, got my heart rate UP, and I was SWEATY. Loved it! 2. Got up Saturday morning, ready to run. Couldn't do my first Couch to 5K workout because we got some snow last night. So I hopped in the car and drove across town. Spent 2 hours in the office getting some loose ends tied up and even arranged my workspace so that my computer doesn't completel block me from people walking by or coming in- I wanted it to feel more open. Then I went across the street and did my C25K workout on the treadmill. Had the gym completely to myself. Struggled a little but never to the point where I wanted to quit. 3. We had lunch at McAlister's when I got home. I DID NOT ORDER SWEET TEA. Insane, I know!!! I didn't order tea or lemonade. I had water. And I ordered a healthy meal- minestrone soup and half of the grilled chicken salad (no bacon, most of the cheese went to Zach). 4. I'm tracking what I'm eating by using My Daily Plate on Livestrong. I'm tracking my calories and my workouts. I don't plan for my blog to become a fitness blog. But I write about the things that are up front in my life and mind and heart. So there will most likely be more posts to come about food and exercise. I'm good at starting multiple other blogs to store things so maybe the best thing is to start a Healthier Me blog where I can store all of this information and excitement.
