OK! Happy Day 22 on my healthy challenge. This is when I need to dig deep. I’m notorious for stickin’ to a plan for 2-3 weeks and then going back to my treats (: I need to find another motivation. The Memorial Day weekend doesn’t help much with a birthday to celebrate too! I’ll keep busy and get creative with my food.
This morning was another greatest and best run up Elephant Rock! My friends and I always say this is one of our favorite places. We had quite the group this morning and then ran into 2 other girl power groups on the trail. We decided to go directly to the rock, which we don’t usually do. I wish I had better pictures of us on the rock. They were taken way zoomed up and with bad lighting. I couldn’t salvage them. This is what I got!
I think I’ll make a quilt with all my pony friend photos one day! It even started raining half way through which made it even more perfect. This weekend we are home working on house projects and havin’ parties. We got a trampoline yesterday!! It was a surprise. Our kids are at good ages. I’m hoping we have a great outdoors summer this year!
Alright, back to my healthy challenge! Here are a few examples from the official checklist.
5 fruits and vegetables each day
Only two treats per week
64 oz. of water every day
45 minutes of exercise 5-6 days a week
No eating past 8:30 p.m.
We also have a few personal and spiritual points to do each day too. I think every body is different in how it responds to nutrition and exercise. I’m going to think of my weak areas and tighten them up. I need to work abs more. I gotta get in control of my bread and treat fettish. And I need more sleep. Sleep should really be on the list. I really love getting up early. This morning our run didn’t start until 6:30 a.m. and I felt like I’d slept in! What I have to learn is to get to bed or better yet, get my kids to bed! Here are this week’s goals:
Only two CARB servings per day.
AB workout 3 times a week
7 hours of sleep each night
I’ll end with two more photos of the day. I don’t mention my little doggies too much in my blog, but I had to snap a photo with my Henry dog. He got attacked by another dog in the neighborhood yesterday. I’m so glad I didn’t see it. The dog had him in his mouth by the scruff of his neck and was whippin’ him around like a doll. My poor doggie. I was able to give him some ibuprofen in some cheese today. He’s hurting. My sister will be giving me a call on this one. She LOVES dogs! Then, my daughter and I were laughing at our hair this morning. She got my hair. This is it! Curly underneath and frizzy straight on top. Lovely!
Have a spectacular and healthy weekend!
