Perfect 10 Update #8

Here’s another update for the Perfect 10 Challenge.

Well, we are on the downhill side of the Perfect 10 Challenge. I didn’t do so hot on the last challenge I took part in, but I feel this one is going fine. I’m beginning to feel very accomplished!

My Perfect 10 Goals Are:
  1. Complete the Couch to 5K program. Yes. I finished week 8 of the Couch to 5K program this week. This week it was running 28 minutes each of the three days. I’m running just under two miles in this time. Technically I’m supposed to be running a 5K (3.1 miles) by the end of next week. I don’t think that’s going to happen, so I’m already beginning to think how I can continue this program until I am running a full 5K – or 3.1 miles.

  2. Drink 6-8, 8 oz. glasses of water daily. No. Just haven’t been getting the water in. This is something I have to work on.

  3. Adjust my eating to see weight loss. Yes. I saw a 1.0 pound loss this week. I’m glad because this shows progress. It’s the lowest weight I’ve been so far and that is exciting.

As for the little tidbit on me….

My husband and I love to have people over for dinner or dinner parties. We enjoy cooking and having friends come over and join us for a meal and some time of fellowship. Sometimes it’s just one family and sometimes, like this past New Years Eve, it’s a few families – kids and all. πŸ™‚ It’s great fun!

This is one of the things I love about Thanksigiving. I love the cooking and planning and setting out a nice dinner. Some people find it all overwhelming, but I find great joy in putting together a large meal and serving it to friends and family.

I’ve catered one wedding for some friends of ours. Since I’ve lived in this state, I’ve also put together a mother-daughter lunch at our church each year around Mother’s Day. This years theme is Asian food with black and white decor.

After seeing the movie “Julie & Julia” I think french food will be on the menu for next year. πŸ™‚ Yes, I plan ahead, because I just love doing these kinds of things. πŸ™‚

    You are doing so well! Congrats on the C25K progress. I was the same way after 9 weeks. I could do 5K – but it took me 45 minutes and longer than 9 weeks, but I got there. You will, too!

    I want to try the beouf bourginogne! (however you spell it)

    I am very impressed with your C25K achievement, especially in this rotten weather.

    I gotta drink more water too.


  4. Sandra says:

    Great job on the C25K – I wouldn't worry so much about the distance right now, work on the endurance and then the distance. You are doing great!


  5. Jen says:
