OK...Not a great start to the week but I'm determined to do better today. I DID punish myself at the gym yesterday. I hit my spinning class with Satan and it was awesome. I'm getting better...able to keep my RPM up most of the time. I also did my weight training after and as penance for my 2 cookies, I did ab work too. I was able to move up on my goal of sit ups from 24 to 31 so I'm making progress. Tonight is running and weights. I had also set some goals for October 10th..let's review:
By October 10th,
- Only allowed to spend $100/week eating outside the house. We eat out FAR too often. This includes lunches, coffee, dinners, breakfasts...ALL of it. Eh. We're definitely doing better but not quite here yet.
- 9 weeks - I'm aiming for 1 lb a week. That's 9 lbs. I'm not even going to address this...
A couple of other things I've been thinking about... I still need one more 5k to hit my 5k goal for the year. I've got to start looking into that. I'm also thinking of renaming my blog. Candyland to Bandland doesn't quite fit anymore...any thoughts? I had once started another blog called "Deep Fried Pandaisms" and I still kind of like that name. I'm not moving my blog or starting a new one or anything like that...just thinking of updating the name at the top. Hmmm...will ponder. OK...so I took pics of my hair this morning. I apologize for the angle...I was my own photographer and did it in my cube at work...it's not that different from how it looks any other day....just a little smoother and straighter.
