I need to start by saying how touched I was by stelle's comment on my outfit post this past Friday. Any of you that blog know it can be extremely thankless; you pour your thoughts and/or life out online and most of the time you don't even know if anyone is reading it. Seeing a comment says someone IS reading and then for that comment to say that they enjoy what your saying is awesome! I know I'm not totally free from fault where this is concerned though, I follow close to 75 blogs and rarely comment on any of the posts I read. But I'm hoping to remember how great it felt when I read that single comment on my post so that I will take the extra few clicks and say something about someone else's writing.
1. Eat out less then 20 meals: I didn't eat out on Friday! That's an awesome feat considering my normal routine of constantly eating out on the weekends. Technically I did have a bagel from Manhattan Bagel for breakfast but that's because a vendor brought them in for us. I didn't spend any money or really get to order what I wanted so it doesn't count. 9 meals total.2. At least 25 days with a 750+ calorie burn:
3. Complete 1500 fitness minutes: I was planning to go to group power on Friday. I was a little concerned though because I hadn't lifted in close to 3 weeks and I had the 32 mile bike ride the next day. Can you imagine how tortuous the ride would be in all my muscles were already sore? So, when Stephanie asked if I wanted to run I jumped at the chance! She hasn't exercised regularly since she had her son so we took it easy. I set my garmin for 30 minutes and we just went 15 out & 15 back, we managed 2.6 miles, not bad. 419 minutes total.
4. Walk at least 10,000 steps for 25 days: I thought my run would have taken care of my steps but I wasn't quite there. I made sure to do some laundry and bring stuff up & down the stairs until I got there. 10023 steps. 13 days total.
5. At least 25 days with 30 minutes of house work: I had a lot of time to kill before & after my run with Stephanie because Joe was stuck at work. I cleaned the kitchen while I made dinner, picked up the living room and then of course there was the laundry I did while finishing up my steps. 12 days total.
