Failures- have you ever had one of "those" days? Where the day was actually okay and then one little change in schedule changed everything? Yep- that was my Monday. By the time I got home it was dark and the LED light I bought didn't work (bought a new one tonight) so that meant treadmill running. I had all intentions of running 3 miles- I did 1. and I walked 1. So, by my plan I "failed" but I also learned that some days are just like that and I just need to brush it off and try again tomorrow (or in my case another day because today was not "the" day either).
Challenges- I signed up for an #elf4health challenge. It's basically 6 weeks (starting yesterday) and there's a daily challenge. You are also assigned an "elf" to help motivate and encourage you. Monday's challenge was meatless monday (my picture disappeared so imagine it). Breakfast I had my "skinny" muffin, lunch was spaghetti squash with pasta sauce, and dinner was eggs and toast. I sometimes struggle with these because of the food issues I have. However, I did it! woohoo! Tuesday's challenge was to send someone a handwritten note. See, the funny thing about that- I make cards- LOTS of them- it's my stress reliever (besides exercise) but I sometimes (okay most of the time) forget to mail them out! So, if you follow me on instagram (tamigrandi) I posted a pic- they are ready to mail. Unfortunately they won't get mailed out until tomorrow but they are addressed and ready.
Oh, and Wednesday's challenge- to try a "new" exercise. Ummm.... anyone want to give me ideas. I know I could do yoga and maybe I'll find a yoga thing on youtube to try...
oh, and that victory- two of them- one of them nonscale and the other scale. The nonscale- may seem little but someone had given me a pile of clothes and there was a medium shirt in the stack (granted it was a men's medium but I usually just wear a mens large). I put it on last night for the heck of it- and it FIT! PERFECTLY! woohoo!
The scale- yeah- about that- I hit the official 30 lb mark TODAY! and I found some pictures from previous years that made me go woah! I'll have to hunt them down and share them.
