It’s time for my first update for the Perfect 10 Challenge.
My Perfect 10 Goals Are:
- Complete the Couch to 5K program. YES – I finished week 1 this morning!!! As I ran today I kept wondering how the heck I’m ever going to run 3 miles consecutively. Then I reminded myself to just take it a day at a time, a week at a time.
- Drink 6-8, 8 oz. glasses of water daily. Kind of – I drank at least 6 glasses everyday but yesterday.
- Adjust my eating to see weight loss. No – I saw a 1.5 lb. gain this week. However, my husband thinks that along with the overeating this past weekend and the effects of TOM it could just be my muscles getting a bit stronger because I went to the gym for 30-40 minutes of cardio and then weights all five days this week.
So, there’s my very colorful first update on the goals.
As for the little tidbit on me….
I love to handwrite letters and have ever since I was a little girl. I wrote my first regular letters when I was five years old and my best friend at the time moved to the Philippines with her family to be missionaries. Ever since then I’ve had a love for writing letters and writing in general.
Now, I do love email, texting, instant messaging, Skype and blogging, but there is still nothing as touching or beautiful as a handwritten note to me. Opening the mailbox to find a handwritten note…well, that just touches me to the core. So, personally I’m praying the USPS never goes out of business, because I plan on using it forever. 🙂
