Geez, it has been so long since I have been able to log on here!!! So much has gone on!!! I don't even know where to start. So I will start with the most recent happenings. My computer crashed and burned, and I just now replaced it. I do have access to other computers but it just wasnt' the same. I was really wanting a Mac Book Pro, but because I don't have that kind of money I actually found a really nice HP for a good price and so far, I like it :) Now that I have a computer, hopefully I can catch up a little bit on everyone's blogs that I follow, and catch up on my blog!
My friend and I started a challenge, we decided to wear our pedometers and shoot for 10,000 steps a day. This is going to be a very difficult task for me, between work and school I have lately found very little time to exercise. However, I know that excercise is key to weight loss and good health. Let's see what else, I read a book called the Eat to Live diet by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. I really like what he has to say. He emphasizes eating fruits and vegetables. He really promotes a vegetarian and vegan lifestyle. I have to say that I did try it some before I went back to work and I did feel better about myself overall. Unfortunately, work has been so crazy that lately my eating habits have gone out the window. So, I think now it is a absolute must that I get back on track. I keep telling myself that I don't have time for anything, but I need to find time to get my nutritional habits back in order and get some exercise in. For a while I haven't been able to get my schedule in order either. Between work and school by the time I come home I am exhausted, so I am hoping that now that I have adjusted a little bitter to all the craziness I can find at least 30 minutes 2-3 times a week to get in that exercise.
There is a run coming to San Antonio, called the Dirty Girl Run so my plan is to register for it, and then get back to training. I figure if I register, then I will have no choice but to do it! A friend of mine is doing a little challenge on FB she started it off easy and then gives little challenges every day. I did start off doing it with them,but that things called work got in the way again and I fell off the wagon :( So today I am going to start with my own challenge: 1) do 25 crunches, 2) get as many steps in as I can. I am feeling a little sick so while my challenge seems easy, it is a start!
Anyone up for a challenge?
