Hello my friends,
The week flew by as I can't believe I haven't blogged since Tuesday.
Let's see on Wednesday my activity was helping map out a 5K walk/ run route for a fun run/walk we're coordinating at site. It was so nice to be outside. This is normally quite difficult on a functional site as there are areas one shouldn't be walking. You're not supposed to be out there alone due to wildlife around. I was walking with two others and it was great. They told of potential plans to actually have some sort of trail for people to exercise outside..awesome.
Food is still a challenge this week, however I have tracked every single day and that's the good, bad and ugly.
Today I zipped downtown and the mall's renos are really coming together. I managed to just leave with what I planned and met my friend P for coffee. There's a new H&M in there that's actually organized. I can't stand the suburban ones as they always look chaotic.
I'm not interested in clothes shopping just yet.
One of my site co-workers has lost a significant amount of weight recently by focusing on healthy and working with a trainer. I was chatting with her boss (one of Wednesday day night walking buddies) and she was telling she thinks this person was inspired by a recent wedding to make some changes.
That got me thinking about my current rut. I think I've lost my inspiration. I haven't lost my dedication but I think you have an added oomph if you're inspired.
While in the mall today I noticed there was a new Sookie Stackhouse novel so when I came home I downloaded in on my Kobo. While on there I scanned the health/fitness e-books and I saw one called the Game On diet. I didn't download it but just read the premise on their website and it's about making the getting healthy thing a game. In other words earn points for good behaviour and lose points for bad behaviour. The premise involves teams.
I've said on here before I suck at challenges and I'm far better on my own but there's no reason I can't make a game for myself. I can be fairly competitive. I need to give this more thought but it might be a good way to be accountable and maybe something to do for the rest of May.
I'll keep you posted on where I go with that.
Weigh in tomorrow and I'm hoping there isn't a down pour as thunder storms are forecasted.
Hope you had a fabulous Friday!!!
