This is one of those things that drives me absolutely CRAZY about myself and I want to change it but never have. I don't keep up with things. EVER!! It really is so frustrating. Here I am blogging about challenging myself every week and making weekly challenges so I will be able to keep up with it and I don't keep up with it. Gar. Come on, me!! Pull it together!! Two weeks in a row of not doing what I said I would do. BUT on that same note, I did do some great things otherwise. So there. Some love. Good job, me.
I did keep up with exercise and enjoyed playing more tennis, running, doing Comcast videos, going to the gym and doing Zumba. So that is great.
We are having a lovely weekend - watching movies, visiting with some friends and just enjoying being together. I really do love just hanging out with that guy, my husband. He is so much fun.
I also wrote a few letters. I wrote three thank you notes, a happy new home card and a happy engagement card. I still need to write three more thank you notes and a new pan pal friend letter! (thank for the letter, new pen pal friend, MS!!!)
So remember that at the beginning of this whole thing I told you about the inspiration coming from a friend who was picking a challenge each week? Well the challenge she picked last week was to eat 8 servings of fruits and vegetables every day and drink 90 ounces of water. She rocked it. I am doing a modified version of that this week.
Here it is, week 4's challenge:
eat a fruit and/or vegetable at every meal, including snacks
Now you wouldn't think this would be much of a challenge, right, but I have been finding that I don't eat as many fruits and vegetables as I should! We eat a ton of vegetables for dinner and lunch but I need to get in more fruit. So I am looking forward to buying a bunch of produce at the grocery tomorrow and going for it. Do any of you find this as a challenge too? Any good ideas for me? My friend HL is a rockstar at eating lots of veggies and fresh foods all the time, especially kale. I should check out her blog for more ideas.
How is everyone out there doing? How is your 2012 so far?
