Monday August 11, 2008: soon to be known as “The Day Jill Gets Her Shizz Together”. I am starting TigerLilly’s walking challenge as well as the 100 Push Ups Challenge today, which is a good thing because apparently I have no upper body strength whatsoever. I did 13 knee push ups, but then tried to do regular push ups – sad, very sad. I could not do even ONE. I’d like to think it’s because I tired my arms out with the knee style push ups, but I really think it’s just because I am a (insert Hanz &Franz voice here) weak little girly girl.
So on the work out front I have a two mile walk planned and 12 push ups to do. If I’m feeling particularly pumped, I may throw in some ab work, I don’t know. I think I’m more motivated to work out when I have a goal in mind than if I’m doing “just because I need to”, so these challenges have come along at the perfect time.
I wanted to start Phase 1 of South Beach today, but since I didn’t make it to the grocery store over the weekend, the only protein I have in my house is some turkey lunchmeat. I’ll do my best though to work with what I’ve got. Eating hasn’t been bad lately, but just not as great as I’d like. I’ve been really lax about getting in fruits and veggies lately, so that needs to be a focus this week too.
Other than that, not a whole lot to say today. Had a great weekend with my sister and her family, and the hubs and I decided to buy a new or new-to-me car very soon. The Honda has a death rattle that can no longer be ignored.
Hope you all have a good productive healthy week!!
