|^^^Gorgeous view from my run last night^^^|
What's that saying? I feel like a chicken with its head cut off? Or something like that? Yeah. That's me. Things at work have really ramped up for me. I've been learning so many new things, going to more meetings, handed new responsibility. It's all been awesome and I think I'm really headed in a great direction here, but I've just been slammed, without a moment's rest! (Allow me to mention that I thrive on that type of atmosphere and 100% prefer it over sitting around, twiddling my thumbs, bored to tears.)
But enough about work.
Allow me to boast about my week of diet and exercise:
Monday - I ran 5 miles (Say whaat?! I haven't done that in almost a year!)
Tuesday - I ran 5 miles (Say whaat, again?! Thank you to the "Spice Girls" Pandora Station.)
Today - I'm going to Zumba! (May I remind you of that time I had an awkward Zumba battle. Let's hope that doesn't happen again.)
Thursday - Rest Day
Friday - I will run 5 miles (Fingers crossed. Fridays there are no guarantees.)
Saturday - Rest Day
Sunday - Hiking (Hey, Mo, Hey!)
And on top of all that crazy-who-am-I exercise, I've been using the My Fitness Pal app, which has really helped me keep track of what I'm eating and staying on top of portion control and good eating habits! I really do love that app.
ALSO - Let me just say: Remember that DietBet I'm partaking in? Well! The pot is now up to $11,340!! Can you believe it? And GUESS WHAT? You can STILL JOIN (until day 14). Every day, the pot keeps growing and more and more people are joining to lose 4% of their body weight by Sept. 17! In fact, my Mom just joined today and let me just say how proud of her I am for doing so (Hey, Mom, Hey!).
SO FAR - I've lost 2.2 POUNDS! Nothing insane, but I'm definitely feeling better. Funny what healthy eating and exercise can do for you, eh? Maybe I should do it more often?
It's been very motivating to see results happening and let's just say there have been many o' naked happy dances happening in my neck of the woods. (Glad you have a visual now.)
Happy Hump Day!
