So I’ve been under the weather the past couple of weeks with a bad cold, maybe a sinus infection and it’s finally starting to clear up. I’m down to some sniffles and coughing and feeling pretty good.

Anyway, I wanted to start the exercise goal off slowly, ease into it since I’ve been away from it for a solid, um, almost a year I guess (gah!).

status report

So a couple posts ago I outlined a list of 10 things I wanted to accomplish this week.

Here’s an update:

  • I walked after work on Monday, 1 day down (my bag is packed for Wednesday)
  • I began cleaning out my cuppboards and organizing my kitchen better. I think one more night on this and I’ll be in good shape. Still need to attack my freezer.
  • I pulled out the book “The Sugar Soluation” and am about halfway through it.
  • So far I have not indulged in fast food.
  • I spent at least 15 minutes reading my bible and journaling last night and am on my way to do it again tonight.

I’ve had a successful couple of days. Hooyah!
