Er, well, the walking will be easy! Now, this is just the PLAN for the week. I've never actually written out my plans prior to now, but I'll be making a habit out of it. Everything is in my agenda, reps and all. The elliptical intervals are the only area I may possibly go off plan should things come up during the week. It happens, especially for us moms (Chris has still been running a fever today and will be home from school tomorrow). Aside from something legit getting in the way, and no, I'm tired and don't wanna is NOT legit, I'll do all that I can to stick to the schedule.
On top of all the new exercise starting this week, so is my office Biggest Loser Challenge! I'll be taking my scale in tomorrow for everyone to weigh-in. We're having a $10 registration fee and a $1 penalty fee for each pound gained during the challenge. We'll weigh-in each Friday morning, March 25th will be the final one. I'm excited, and really hopeful that everyone's going to stick with it since almost the entire office is doing it together. Ironically, I got a message from another friend (boss lady) I work with asking for the link to my blog while writing this. She, BFF (also coworker), and Mr. D are the only folks I know in real life that have that. I've thought about sharing it more, but not sure I'm ready yet. I don't want to start unconsciously editing my writing, you know?
On another note, my BFF blogged for the first time since September- twice! She's engaged, and in the midst of wedding planning now that she has some time finally. She may kill me tomorrow, but I'm doing it anyway ;) A direct quote from the most recent post: "So next I was worried about my diet. *IF* I lose 2 pounds a week, I'll be at goal for my wedding. No pressure there right?" I've mentioned this before- she's the one that helped me get my head in the game before my wedding. She was my diet-buddy. And then, with all she's gone through lately, she fell off the wagon and is getting back on now. If you have a minute, please stop by and offer her a little encouragement?? I'm going to kick her butt for that IF part!
And I tried mushrooms in my omelet today.. I'm not a fan of mushrooms. My mom used to dice them up into microscopic pieces for her spaghetti sauce so I wouldn't know they were there. I bought some canned mushrooms weeks ago with the intention of doing that, but I keep putting it off, because ew? Well, I want to eat cleaner this year (yes, I know they were canned- thank you captain obvious). That's going to require trying more fruits and veggies- like mushrooms. I'm starting off slow, with canned mushrooms diced up into smaller than microscopic pieces in my omelets, along with the green pepper, spinach, ham, and ff cream cheese. I couldn't even tell they were there. Take that, mushrooms.
