1. I have done great this week in regards to both of my challenges. My 30 Day Shred Challenge is going great, and I will be moving on to level two in a couple of days. When I started the challenge, I was sick and taking antibiotics, but I am so glad I was able to power through those first few days because now I have no excuse not to "just do it." Last night, it was 10pm before I was able to get the DVD in, but I was so happy to finish it for the day. My DDGbD challenge is also going well, I have one more day of week 3 in the couch to 5k and so far so good. I am still able to keep up the speed, and this makes me excited! My food journaling has been a bit too sporadic, and I think I may have to return to pen and paper because some days its just too hard to fit in time to get online for food journaling, but I love sparkpeople when I have the time to devote to finding my food in the database. Even though I haven't journaled the way I should I know that I haven't had any big splurges, and with my internal calorie count I am hitting my range just right.
2. Today I tried a new piece of equipment at the gym. The Summit Trainer. Have any of you guys tried this beast?! I made it through a half mile today, but I will face him again soon! My legs were like jello when I got off...so much harder for me than the elliptical. This will be a great challenge for me to conquer!
3. The little yellow butterflies fluttering around lately make me so happy. I just can't see one without smiling :) I've always heard when you start seeing these guys, fall is just around the corner :)
